(NASDAQ: SINO) (“Sino-Global,” the “Company” or “We”) today announced the expansion of its cryptocurrency market position with the close of its acquisition of 2,783 digital currency mining servers from Hebei Yanghuai Technology Co., Ltd.

Mr. Lei Cao, Chief Executive Officer of Sino-Global, commented, “The successful closing of this acquisition puts Sino-Global ahead of schedule as we diversify our core business into the fast growing cryptocurrency market. Acquiring nearly 3,000 digital currency mining servers gives us a substantial platform, one we intend to grow both organically and through additional M&A opportunities if they meet our valuation, performance and location criteria. Having been in business since 2001, we believe we can leverage our extensive trading and logistics experience to create even greater value for the company and shareholders.”
All devices have unique QR codes enabling qualified uniqueness acceptance. The agreement stipulates a one-year warranty period covering the operational health and performance of the digital currency operation servers. Yanghuai will continue to manage and operate the digital currency mining servers at no further charge during this one year, after which time Sino-Global may contract Yanghuai to provide such services for a fee.
