Digihost Technology Inc. (“Digihost” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: DGHI; TSXV: DGHI), an innovative U.S. based Bitcoin (“BTC”) mining company, announces unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022 (all amounts in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise indicated).

“The Company is pleased to present its first quarter financial results, highlighted by a 77% increase in Bitcoins mined on a year over year basis,” said Michel Amar, Chairman and CEO of Digihost. “The Company’s previous investments in infrastructure along with securing access to clean and renewable energy sources led to revenue generation from mining of $7.3M, an increase of 53% over the preceding year. Despite challenging market conditions, Digihost is committed to its goal of being a leading blockchain technology company. With approximately $31 million of cash and cash equivalents currently on hand, valued at today’s BTC price, and a mining operation with breakeven costs of approximately $12,000 per BTC, based on current hashing difficulty and cost of power, the Company is more than capable of sustaining its existing operations, Digihost is clearly here to stay. Based upon the number of BTC mined so far this quarter, the Company anticipates that it will mine more BTC in Q2 than it mined during Q1 of this year.”
