To our fellow CalEthos stakeholders:
Over the past few months, many notable changes have been made to CalEthos as we continue our efforts to create value for all CalEthos stakeholders. As most of you know, prior to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, we intended to focus our business development efforts on building a large-format cannabis supermarket chain. to meet the needs of the rapidly growing Southern California. cannabis market. However, over the past two years, funding for large-scale cannabis development projects has largely dried up, causing us to rethink our business outlook and our ability to secure funding and be successful. in this industry. Fortunately, however, as we determined at the end of 2020 that the door to starting a cannabis business was closing, we reconnected with a longtime IT industry associate who was planning to develop a next-level high-performance computer system. generation for cryptography processing. transactions. After careful consideration, we made the decision to team up and move the company to the development and manufacture of transaction processing systems for cryptocurrency, token and blockchain applications.
Based on months of research on the crypto industry, we now plan to focus our business efforts on building a high performance computer hardware business by developing a 5 nanometer ASIC chip and mining system. Dip-cooled bitcoins for the biggest cryptocurrency mining companies. As part of our change of business focus, we plan to change our name to AIQ Blockchain, Inc. (“AIQ”) and our trade symbol, pending FINRA approval, to AIQB.QB. This will result in the filing of an information statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding the name change and a request with FINRA for the change of CUSIP. In addition, as part of these activities, we intend to file an application with OTC Markets Inc. to upgrade the trading market for our common shares to the OTCQB level of OTC Markets Inc.
Along with these efforts, we intend to hire a CTO, technical support team, and chip and systems engineering team under contract to develop a 5 nanometer ASIC chip for the machines of bitcoin mining and an immersion cooled bitcoin mining system that we plan to manufacture for large bitcoin mining companies.
The development of the ASIC chip and the immersion cooled system is expected to take 10 to 12 months. In the final stages of development, we plan to complete prototypes for the ¼ and ½ MW immersion cooled bitcoin mining systems for customer testing and demonstration. We plan to design the systems to require more than 50% less energy than conventional air-cooled bitcoin mining operations which currently account for over 90% of the global bitcoin mining fleet. .
We intend to finance the development of our ASIC chips and our immersion cooled systems through equity or debt financing from accredited investors.
