This profile is part of a paid investor education campaign. *
Squire Mining Ltd. (CSE: SQR) is a Canadian based cryptocurrency mining company focused on the development, production and sales of data mining and system technology. Their products support global blockchain applications in the mining space, including Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) chips and next-generation cryptocurrency mining platforms.
Since Bitcoin was introduced in 2009, the cryptocurrency market has grown to include different types of tokens. Most cryptocurrencies are managed through a decentralized network, or blockchain, where other users, known as miners, validate the transaction. Miners compete against each other for just-beaten currency by solving cryptographic enigmas that determine who transcribes transactions on the block. To do this, companies involved in the extraction of cryptocurrencies require equipment that can be extracted continuously.
Establishing the industry standard, Bitmain cryptography giant is the mining infrastructure and the indicator of system technology for how the development of cryptographic technology, producing ASIC chips and cryptocurrency mining platforms. Bitmain generated $ 2.5 billion in revenue in 2017 and posted a net profit of $ 1.1 billion in Q1 2018. Currently, Bitmain is preparing for its IPO as a company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in Q4 2018 or in Q1 2019 and has a pre-IPO rating of $ 14 billion according to in Forbes.
Trying to enter the same space, Squire is currently testing the prototypes of 10-nanometer ASIC chips and cryptographic platforms. Squire has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Coingeek.com, which is subject to minimum purchasing requirements and will be responsible for marketing, solicitation, sale and distribution of the new chip and ASIC extraction system of Squire in the Coingeek.com brand. Once these products are placed on the market, the company will devote its attention to the development of chips or systems of seven or eight nanometers that will address the problems that other seven-nanometer systems are facing.

Cryptocurrencies are decentralized and encrypted tokens that can be exchanged between users across a network. Transactions between users are validated on a decentralized public registry, or blockchain, by other users on the network.
From the emergence of Bitcoin in 2009, the cryptocurrency market has developed into a comprehensive sector that includes numerous cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum, Litecoin and Dash, which are hosted and managed within blockchain networks. Cryptocurrencies have seen significant growth as they gain more traction and many sectors, such as the banking, financial, and mining sectors, are starting to adopt blockchain technology solutions.
While cryptocurrencies gained popularity, new companies were emerging that focused on the extraction of large-scale cryptocurrencies. These companies make money by solving cryptographic enigmas placed in a block and then verified by other miners. Once this is done, the miner who solved the puzzle receives a part of the cryptocurrency that is treated. To implement large-scale operations of this type, miners require hardware and software dedicated to the task's height.
Sensing the need for equipment in the growing cryptocurrency space, companies like Bitmain have worked on the development of mining activities. algorithms and software that can solve cryptographic puzzles quickly and effectively. The software lives in specialized hardware called "rigs", which are designed to run continuously so they can be extracted 24 hours a day, making it an "eight months to a year" life cycle for Squire Mining rigs EVP Richard Underhill.
To help extend the life of the platform, certain conditions must be met to ensure optimal performance. The platforms must be in a cool environment to avoid overheating, supported by high-speed Internet and should be located in jurisdictions with low energy costs to ensure profitability. With these three factors in mind, the jurisdictions such as Iceland, Venezuela and Georgia are becoming increasingly popular for the development of cryptocurrency mineral warehouses. Currently, approximately 73.12 terawatt hours of value are dedicated to cryptanalysis extraction operations worldwide.
The market proved to be profitable. By 2017, Bitmain generated revenue of $ 2.5 billion, of which approximately 96% of revenue was derived from sales of its mining platforms. Their Antminer line of drillers represents about 85% of the mining platforms sold globally.
Blockchain is a decentralized electronic system for processing and registering transactions, which allows various users to keep track of information uploaded to the system. Blockchain can provide transparency, ease of access and legitimacy to transactions in various sectors. Because of the variety of its applications, the blockchain market is expected with a CAGR of 37.2% and will generate 7.59 billion dollars in revenue by 2024, according to a report by Grand View Research Inc .
While blockchain technology was originally invented as a transaction record for Bitcoin miners, technology applications are expanding into other sectors. While analysts question the longevity of cryptocurrencies, other blockchain applications are emerging, including supply chain monitoring and validation for the food and cannabis industries, smart solutions in the financial services sector, and more.
Squire develops the cryptocurrency of the equipment the miners must perform their operations. Squire is currently testing its 10-nanometer ASIC chip and rig prototype. The expected timing for the development of chip and rig Squire is as follows:
- End of September 2018: prototype chip tested
- Q4 2018: 60,000 chips tested in prototype plants
- November 2018: launch of the rig at the conference of Coingeek
- Q4 2018: start of the series production of the chip
- Q1 2019: start of the production of rig
- Q1 2019: start of the rig sales
After Squire has started to distribute its 10 nanometers of microchips and cryptographic platforms, the company will devote its attention to the development of microchips and cryptographic platforms seven or eight nanometers.
In August 2018, Squire entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with a member of Coingeek.com, the world's largest bitcoin liquidity miner. The distributor will market, solicit, sell and distribute the new chip and the Squire ASIC mining system to cryptocurrent miners under the Coingeek.com brand. The distribution of chips and data mining systems is subject to minimum purchasing requirements for a period of three years, which can be extended to five.
Squire is currently committed to consolidating a couple of production agreements with microchip and technology companies to ensure that they provide cryptocurrency miners with a quality product.
