(NASDAQ: FTFT) (“hereinafter referred to as “Future FinTech”, “FTFT” or “the Company”), a leading blockchain-based e-commerce business and a fintech service provider, announced today that on April 22, 2022, its wholly-owned subsidiary, FTFT SuperComputing Inc. (“FTFT SuperComputing”), signed an Electricity Sales and Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Champion Energy Services, LLC (“Champion Energy”). The Agreement stipulates that Champion Energy is obligated to provide 15.58 MW of electricity for the development of the Company’s planned cryptocurrency farm in Northwest Ohio.

In December 2021, the Company announced its plan to build a cryptocurrency mining farm in the US which, if successful, the first phase could deploy approximately 12,000 S19 Antminers and accommodate about 1.3 EH/s of hash power. The total investment for the cryptocurrency mining farm project is estimated to be $62 million, with each of the six stages of the project projected to be $10 million per expansion phase; however, $12 million is being allocated for the first phase of the project for the acquisition of the site, plant development and the upgrading of the power system.

Mr. Kai Xu, Chief Inspector of Future FinTech’s Blockchain Division, said, “We are pleased to have entered into this agreement to obtain the needed power supply to enable us to develop a cryptocurrency mining farm in the US. Our strategic plan for this business segment is to develop cryptocurrency mining farms in different regions of the world and accelerate their deployment by using our own capabilities or through cooperation agreements with strong partners. We believe that planned cryptocurrency farm in Ohio will be successful and will meet the goals that we have set out for it.”
