Non-IFRS Measures

Bitcoin and Bitcoin Equivalent Mining Margin is a non-IFRS financial measure. We believe Bitcoin and Bitcoin Equivalent Mining Margin have limitations as an analytical tool. In particular, Bitcoin and Bitcoin equivalent mining margin excludes depreciation of mining equipment and therefore does not reflect the full cost of our mining operations, and it also excludes the effects of fluctuations in the value of digital currencies and losses. made on the sale of digital mining equipment. assets, which affect our IFRS gross profit. This measure should not be considered an alternative to gross margin determined in accordance with IFRS or other IFRS measures. This measure is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Accordingly, you should not consider this measure in isolation or as an alternative analysis of our gross margin as determined in accordance with IFRS.
