Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

On August 15, 2022, BitNile, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“BitNile”) and wholly owned subsidiary of BitNile Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Master Agreement (the “Master Agreement”) and Order Form (the “Order Form” and together with the Master Agreement, the “Hosting Documents”) with Compute North LLC (“Compute North”) providing for the hosting by Compute North of Bitcoin miners owned by BitNile.

 

Pursuant to the Hosting Documents, Compute North will host 6,500 S19j Pro Antminers (the “Miners”) owned by BitNile for a period of five (5) years (the “Term”). BitNile agreed to pay a fee per kilowatt hour for the Miners (the “Monthly Service Fee”), together with a monthly package fee per Miner. The Monthly Service Fee is payable based on the actual hashrate performance of the Miners, of which 70% of the anticipated Monthly Service Fee is payable in advance, and the remaining Monthly Service Fee, if any, will be invoiced in arrears.

 

Under the Master Agreement, BitNile granted Compute North a continuing first-position security interest in the Miners, as collateral for BitNile’s obligations under the Hosting Documents. Upon an event of default (as defined in the Master Agreement) by BitNile, Compute North has the right to terminate the Hosting Documents and BitNile is obligated to pay to Compute North all amounts then due under the Hosting Documents, together with a fee as liquidated damages, equal to the amount of fees that BitNile would have been required to pay through the end of the Term.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Master Agreement and Order Form do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to their respective forms which are annexed hereto as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.  The foregoing does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties thereunder and such descriptions are qualified in their entirety by reference to such exhibits.
