Everything Blockchain, Inc. (formerly OBITX, Inc.) Agrees to Acquire Mercury, Inc.
Implements Cryptocurrency Mining Operation Strategy
OBITX, Inc. (OTCMKTS: OBTX), an advanced software development and services company specializing in blockchain technologies and decentralized processing, announced today it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent to acquire 100% ownership of Mercury, Inc., with its base of operations in Idaho at its current valuation of $2.1 million. Mercury was founded by skilled IT professionals with leading edge experience in enterprise software development, web application development, data analytics and visualization. Mercury has consistently recorded approximately $2.5 million in revenue with a 15% bottom line profit margin over the past three years. OBITX expects to close on the acquisition after completion of its due diligence period. As the transaction proceeds, the Company will publicly disclose additional information through press releases or SEC filings, as appropriate.
OBITX has utilized Mercury as its hosting solution since May 2020. Prior to closing, OBITX will be launching its mining operation in collaboration with Mercury, developing a leading and innovative mining operation in the western United States. OBITX will commence mining for Bitcoins, Ethereum, and other alternative cryptocurrencies within the next 60 days. Once the operations begin, the Company anticipates it will create significant job opportunities in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
According to blockchain.com, miners are earning nearly $60 million per day in mining operations. In addition to mining for Bitcoin and Ethereum, OBITX will mine for several alternative coins. “In choosing Idaho as our base for our mining operations, OBITX will be able to secure access to some of the most competitively priced electrical energy worldwide,” said Eric Jaffe, OBITX CEO said. He went on to say, “The acquisition of Mercury, Inc., is right in line with our strategic growth plan. Implementing these new operations is a key matrix to our development strategy. We will continue to increase the investment and construction of cryptocurrency computing centers in the USA.”
