BTCS Provides Corporate Update and 2016 Outlook

BTCS Inc. (OTCQB: BTCS) ("BTCS" or the "Company"), a blockchain technology focused company which secures the blockchain through its transaction verification services business, generated 1,797 bitcoins for the year ended December 31, 2015 from its transaction verification services, an increase of 3,389% over total bitcoins earned in 2014.

"While we are pleased to report significant percentage growth in bitcoins earned during 2015, the real story of our success over the past year is the strong foundation we built for our business moving forward," stated Charles Allen, CEO of BTCS.

"Our refined operational focus on blockchain technologies has led to a rapid build-out of capacity at our North Carolina facility, and with our definitive merger with Spondoolies-Tech Ltd. now in place, we are well-positioned for continued growth in 2016."

The Company's recently completed round of financing has enabled it to grow its transaction verification business to approximately 1800 TH/s, an increase of more than 100% compared to the 891 TH/s in place through most of 2015. Operating at the increased hash rate the Company will use approximately 0.95 megawatts ("mw") of its 3mw capacity.

Allen continued, "With the transaction verification servers we are running today, we believe we are on track to generate over 600 bitcoins in the first quarter of 2016. The remaining unused capacity we have in place provides ample room for planned growth with minimal added expense as we pursue a substantial financing with the goal of uplisting to a major exchange."

The Company engaged Chardan Capital Markets, LLC, a privately held investment banking firm with a focus on small-cap and mid-cap markets, to advise the Company on potential transactions that could lead to an up listing on a major exchange.

The additional capital expected to be raised from a future offering will enable BTCS to further capitalize on the significant opportunity within the growing blockchain technology space.

Recently heralded in a cover story in The Economist for its potential to "transform how the economy works," blockchain technologies are forecasted to impact nearly every industry that relies on safe and secure transactions.
