The initial phase of the Riot Blockchain transformation is now complete,
We have embarked on a systematic risk mitigation effort to benefit all shareholders. We have overseen the termination of the SEC investigation and have improved the Company’s financial profile by eliminating all long-term debt, adding significant positive working capital, and reducing our operating overhead by relocating to a lower-cost facility.
We have also streamlined our operational capabilities by reorganizing our management team, closing RiotX and focusing on the production of bitcoin, of which the Company now has over 1,000 in inventory. We have completely upgraded the Company’s mining fleet and are on-track to achieving a hash rate capacity of approximately 566 PH/s by Q4 of 2020, utilizing highly power efficient mining hardware. We are now well-positioned to embark on the second phase of Riot Blockchain’s transformation.
The company wants to continue to expand its mining base and one of its main goals is to exceed 1 exahash per second (“EH / s”) in early 2021.
