HERNDON, Va., Dec. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sysorex (OTCQB: SYSX), the preeminent, U.S.-based, publicly traded Ethereum mining and technologies company, today announced its Ethereum Holdings are now valued in excess of $6.5 million.
Wayne Wasserberg, CEO of Sysorex, commented, “Just this past August, we announced our new strategy of holding mined Ethereum known as Ether (ETH) in treasury rather than selling ETH for cash. In this short time, we have since built the value of the Company’s ETH holdings, which now total more than $6.5 million. We now have 1,520 ETH in our custody account and are adding an average of 10 ETH every day.”
Mr. Wasserberg continued, “We believe strategically holding ETH will provide opportunities for revenue generation well above the expected appreciation in the value of ETH. Specifically, holding ETH in custody provides us flexibility to stake ETH in the future when Ethereum moves from proof or work (PoW) to proof of stake (PoS). As this transition occurs and with the advent of Ethereum 2.0, we believe Ethereum will continue to increase in popularity and efficiency. Moreover, we expect the Ethereum Blockchain to go from processing approximately 45 transactions per second to approximately 100,000 transactions per second. As a result, we expect our strategy of holding our mined ETH will ensure the Company has a major role to play in the future sustainability of the Ethereum Blockchain, which, in turn, we believe will generate significant value for our shareholders.”
In November 2021, the Company purchased the remaining interests in its primary data center located in upstate New York. With 100% ownership of the data center, Sysorex has since increased its gigahash by approximately 10%. The Company is also in the process of implementing a centralized management system, which is expected to further maximize the efficiencies of its GPUs. The Company is advancing its Non-Fungible Token (NFT) strategy, most recently with its investment in The Hunt marketplace, supported by the guidance of its advisory board member, award-winning movie and commercial producer, Michael Bay.
