Shareholder approval for the Change in Business by a majority of the Company’s disinterested shareholders has also been obtained by way of written consent resolution,” Squire Mining said in a statement.
The proceedings will be used for the development and future support of a “next generation ASIC chip and mining rig”. While the product is not available yet, the company has already signed an exclusive distributor agreement.
