Squire bündelt Kräfte mit Elektronikgiganten Ennoconn, um Mining-Rigs der nächsten Generation herzustellen

Vancouver (British Columbia), 12. Oktober 2018. Squire Mining Ltd. (CSE: SQR, FRA: 9SQ, OTCQB: SQRMF) („Squire“ oder das „Unternehmen“) freut sich, Ennoconn Corporation („Ennoconn“) als seinen Hardwarehersteller für Mining-Systeme der nächsten Generation für das Schürfen von Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin und anderen damit in Zusammenhang stehenden Kryptowährungen zu präsentieren. Ennoconn ist ein führender Entwickler von industriellen Hauptplatinen und ein ganzheitlicher Lösungsanbieter von Hardwaresystemen mit Hauptsitz in Taipei (Taiwan), der an der taiwanesischen Börse notiert (TPE: 6414). Im Jahr 2007 avancierte die Foxconn Technology Group, das weltweit größte Electronic Manufacturing Service-Unternehmen, zum Mehrheitsaktionär von Ennoconn, wodurch eine starke strategische Allianz in den Bereichen eingebettete Systeme und Elektronikherstellung entstand.

Am 21. August 2018 meldete Squire, dass AraSystems Technology Corp. („AraSystems“), eine Tochtergesellschaft von Squire, ein vorläufiges unverbindliches Abkommen mit einem großen, globalen Technologiemontageunternehmen unterzeichnet hat. Dieses Unternehmen, bei dem es sich um Ennoconn handelt, wie nun bekannt ist, wird die Konzipierung und den Zusammenbau unseres Mining-Rig der nächsten Generation unterstützen, sobald ein funktionierender Prototyp unseres ersten ASIC-Chips fertiggestellt wurde.

Am 3. Oktober 2018 meldete Squire den erfolgreichen Abschluss und die erfolgreiche Erprobung eines funktionierenden Prototypen seines FPGA-Mikrochips, wobei die ersten Ergebnisse des Verhältnisses zwischen Terahash und Energieverbrauch darauf hinwiesen, dass der endgültige ASIC-Chip und das endgültige Mining-System das Potenzial aufweisen, die Betriebskosten von Mining-Unternehmen um bis zu 40 Prozent zu senken.

• Diese Kostensenkung wurde von einem führenden Mining-Konzern auf 60 Millionen Dollar pro Jahr an Einsparungen alleine in ihren Betrieben geschätzt.

• Der endgültige ASIC-Chip und das endgültige Mining-System werden die Schürfleistung der Blockchain voraussichtlich vervierfachen. Dieser Prozess ermöglicht es Schürfern, bezahlt zu werden und dabei ihre Kapitalrendite und ihren Gewinn zu steigern. Solche Berechnungen basieren auf Vergleichen mit den meisten aktuellen Mining-Maschinen, die von Unternehmen aus allen Teilen der Welt eingesetzt werden.

Angesichts dieses Erfolgs hat das Unternehmen eine verbindliche Absichtserklärung (Memorandum of Understanding) mit Ennoconn unterzeichnet und die Arbeiten hinsichtlich des Beginns der Phase-1-Planung und -Entwicklung des Mining-Systems der nächsten Generation von AraSystems in Zusammenarbeit mit seinen Partnern in Taipei (Taiwan) und Seoul (Südkorea) finanziert.  Die endgültige Dokumentation wird der folgenden Lieferung der endgültigen Spezifikationen und Datenblätter an Ennoconn zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt in diesem Monat beigefügt werden.

Die Techniker von Squire arbeiten zurzeit gemeinsam mit Ennoconn an der Konzipierung und Entwicklung des Mining-Rig von AraSystems, das mit dem ersten ASIC-Chip ausgestattet werden wird, der zurzeit von AraCore Technology Corp. („AraCore“), einer Tochtergesellschaft des Unternehmens, gemeinsam mit GaonChips und Samsung Electronics entwickelt wird (siehe Pressemitteilungen vom 25. September und 3. Oktober 2018).  Ennoconn wird hingegen für die Massenfertigung des Mining-Rig verantwortlich sein, sobald alle Entwicklungs- und Testarbeiten abgeschlossen sind.

Ein Prototyp des Mining-Rig sowie die vollständigen Spezifikationen des ASIC-Chips von AraCore werden voraussichtlich bei der CoinGeek Conference präsentiert werden, die von 28. bis 30. November 2018 in London stattfinden wird. Der Vorabverkauf wird voraussichtlich zu dieser Zeit beginnen. Einige der größten Mining-Unternehmen dieser Branche, die zurzeit Hunderttausende von Mining-Maschinen in ihren Einrichtungen in allen Teilen der Welt betreiben, haben bereits großes Interesse bekundet.

„Wir freuen uns, eine Partnerschaft mit den fachkundigen Technikern von Ennoconn, einem der weltweit führenden Elektronikherstellungsunternehmen, eingegangen zu sein“, sagte Simon Moore, Executive Chairman und CEO von Squire. „Angesichts der Einführung unseres Mining-Rig der nächsten Generation mit zahlreichen Innovationen ist es unabdingbar, dass unsere Herstellungspartner über das Know-how, die Erfahrung und die Fähigkeit verfügen, nicht nur eine einzigartige Hardware, sondern auch die höchste Qualität zu liefern.  Wir sind davon überzeugt, dass Ennoconn dazu beitragen wird, die Herstellung eines außergewöhnlichen Mining-Rig für den Markt sicherzustellen“, sagte er. Herr Moore sagte außerdem: „Angesichts der ersten Interessensbekundungen in der Branche besteht enormes Potenzial für starke Verkäufe und daraus resultierende Umsätze für Squire im kommenden Jahr, wodurch Squire und seine Partner nennenswerte Anbieter von Hardware für das Schürfen von Kryptowährungen und Innovation der nächsten Generation auf globaler Ebene sein würden.“

Squire joins forces with electronics giant Ennoconn, to manufacturer next generation mining rigs

October 11, 2018 – VANCOUVER, B.C., Squire Mining Ltd. (CSE:SQR; FRA:9SQ; OTCQB:SQRMF) (“Squire” or the “Company”). Squire is pleased to announce Ennoconn Corporation (“Ennoconn”) as our hardware manufacturer for next generation mining systems to mine Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin and other associated cryptocurrencies. Ennoconn is a leading industrial motherboard designer and total hardware system solution provider headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan and listed on the Taiwan stock exchange (TPE:6414). In 2007, Foxconn Technology Group, the largest “Electronic Manufacturing Service” company in the world, became the majority shareholder of Ennoconn, forming a strong strategic alliance in embedded system and electronic manufacturing.

On August 21, 2018, Squire announced that AraSystems Technology Corp. (“AraSystems”), a subsidiary of Squire, had entered into a provisional non-binding agreement with a major global technology assembly company. This company, now revealed to be Ennoconn, will assist in the design and assembly of our next generation mining rig at such time as a working prototype of our debut ASIC chip is completed.

On October 3, 2018 Squire announced the successful completion and testing of its FPGA working prototype microchip, with early results of the terahash-to-energy consumption ratio, indicating that the final ASIC chip and mining system has the potential to reduce operational costs by up to 40% for enterprise mining facilities.

  • This cost reduction was estimated by one leading enterprise mining group to be worth up to $60M per year in savings to their operations alone.
  • The final ASIC chip and mining system together are expected to provide up to a four times improvement in the performance of mining the blockchain, a process that enables miners to be paid, thereby increasing the return on investment, and profit, for miners. Such calculations are based on comparisons with the majority of current generation mining machines operating inside enterprise facilities around the world.

Following this success, the Company has signed a binding Memorandum of Understanding with Ennoconn and funded work to commence Phase 1 design and development of AraSystem’s next generation mining system in collaboration with its partners in Taipei, Taiwan and in Seoul, South Korea.  Definitive documentation will be entered into following delivery of final specifications and data sheets to Ennoconn later this month.

Squire’s engineers are currently working with Ennoconn to design and develop AraSystem’s mining rig which will house the debut ASIC chip currently under development by the Company’s subsidiary AraCore Technology Corp (“AraCore”), in conjunction with GaonChips and Samsung Electronics (see news releases dated September 25 and October 3, 2018).  In turn, Ennoconn will be responsible for mass assembly of the mining rig once all design, development and testing work has been completed.

A prototype of the mining rig along with full specifications of the AraCore ASIC chip are expected to be presented at the CoinGeek Conference in London on November 28 – 30, 2018, with presales expected to commence on or around that date. Significant interest has already been expressed by several of the industry’s largest enterprise mining companies, which currently host hundreds of thousands of mining machines in their facilities across the world.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with the skilled engineers at Ennoconn, one of the world’s leading electronic manufacturing companies,” stated Simon Moore, Executive Chairman and CEO of Squire. “As we launch our next generation mining rig with a suite of proprietary innovations, it’s imperative that our manufacturing partners have the talent, experience and capacity to not only deliver unique hardware, but also deliver best in class quality.  We believe Ennoconn will help ensure the production of an exceptional mining rig for the marketplace” he said. Further, Mr. Moore noted, “based on initial interest from the sector, the potential for significant sales and the subsequent revenue for Squire is on track in the coming year which would make Squire and its partners a noteworthy industry provider of crypto mining hardware and next generation innovation on a global scale.”

BitMEX appoints leading regulatory expert Angelina Kwan as COO

Former Managing Director of HKEX to advance global crypto trading platform’s growth

Seychelles — October 2, 2018 — BitMEX, one of the world’s leading crypto-coin trading platforms, has appointed leading regulatory expert Angelina Kwan to the role of Chief Operating Officer. Kwan previously served as Managing Director and Head of Regulatory Compliance for Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX). She will be responsible for overseeing and driving the company’s growth, while guiding BitMEX on its mission to offer advanced, innovative financial products for the global cryptocurrency industry.

BitMEX CEO and Co-founder Arthur Hayes said: “Welcoming Angelina — experienced in traditional finance and regulation — to the BitMEX team is a significant milestone not just for our company, but for the cryptocurrency industry as a whole. I believe Angelina’s decision to join us is a signal that the global markets are shifting focus to the rapidly-expanding domain of crypto-coins. Angelina’s vast experience in regulation, trading platforms, business development, restructuring, and investor and stakeholder relations will be pivotal as we continue the push towards mainstream cryptocurrency adoption and broaden our community.”

Kwan brings more than 24 years of experience in leadership roles for financial products across Asia Pacific and the United States. She has gained a deep understanding of operations and regulatory strategy, having spent eight years working at the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong (SFC), in addition to a wealth of experience with global financial services firms, ranging from retail securities trading to asset management. Kwan will be based in Hong Kong, a global hub for cryptocurrency innovation.

Angelina Kwan, BitMEX Chief Operating Officer, said: “My most memorable accomplishments — from successfully restructuring and relisting a bankrupt financial services company,  spearheading the establishment of new operations or companies, to serving on a number of boards and committees — have been joining organizations that are at the cusp of making a major breakthrough, so it’s with a sense of great excitement that I take on the challenge of driving BitMEX to new market heights.

“In addition to being a true market leader among trading platforms, BitMEX shares my value of gender inclusion, particularly in STEM fields. Cryptocurrency markets present an exciting new opportunity for women to get involved in the intersection of finance and technology, two fields in which they are chronically under-represented. BitMEX has made its commitment to meritocracy clear, and is sending the message that women with deep backgrounds in finance and business can execute at the highest level within cryptocurrency companies,” added Kwan.

Kwan is a Hong Kong Government-appointed member of the Women’s Commission, the Council for Sustainable Development, the Lord Wilson Heritage Trust and the Administrative Appeals Board; a Director and Chairman of the Audit Committee of the Securities Industry Development Corporation of Malaysia; Vice-Chairman and Director of The Women’s Foundation; a Fellow and Member of the Regulatory Accountability Board; Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants; and an Honorary Adjunct Professor of Finance for the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

In the third quarter of 2018 alone, BitMEX broke the industry record for 24-hour bitcoin trading volume on two separate occasions. As the crypto market continues to mature and recognize the potential for digital assets like bitcoin, BitMEX’s trading platform will continue to adapt and onboard new investors to the crypto markets, giving them the confidence they need to participate in a fully compliant way.

About BitMEX:

BitMEX – Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange is the world’s most advanced bitcoin derivatives platform. BitMEX offers commercial hedgers, bitcoin miners, and professional investors and traders the ability to exchange bitcoin risk. Harnessing the financial derivatives experience of its staff, BitMEX was formed in early 2014. BitMEX’s mission is to professionalize the trading of bitcoin derivatives.
