DMG Blockchain Solutions Provides January Mining Results, Petra Completion and Makes Public Appearances
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DMG Blockchain Solutions Inc. (TSX-V: DMGI) (OTCQB: DMGGF) (FSE: 6AX) (“DMG” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated blockchain and cryptocurrency technology company, announces January preliminary operational results.
DMG’s January Operating Results
DMG mined 100.2 bitcoin with 0.91 EH/s realized hashrate. DMG’s bitcoin balance as of January 31, 2023 was 413.8 bitcoin. Depending on the timing to receive shipments of ordered miners, DMG expects to grow its hashrate to 1 EH/s in early 2023; this is subject to the receipt, installation and operation of the additional miners.
DMG is excited to announce that its Petra platform has been used to successfully submit multiple transactions to the Bitcoin blockchain. Petra as a platform is designed to bring subscribers enhanced options when initiating crypto transactions, including KYC on wallets, AML on transactions and routing via DMG’s Terra Pool, a carbon neutral mining pool. DMG has created a way for bitcoin network participants to make a choice if they want to ensure that the movement of their coins is done with minimal carbon footprint. Over the past few days multiple blocks have moved bitcoin using the Petra platform. As well, DMG has moved the first batch of ordinals using Petra on Terra Pool. “Using DMG’s Blockseer suite of technologies, we have introduced an option for companies and individuals who have particular interest in governance, regulatory issues, and ESG goals. The goal of these products is to give greater optionality than was previously available to those individuals and organizations in how they can choose to interact with the bitcoin blockchain,” commented DMG’s CTO Adrian Glover.
