Contract No.: Signing Place：
This Hashrate Service Contract (this “Contract”) is made and entered into by and between the following Parties on [Day][Month][Year].
Party A: （“User”）
(Each of Party A and Party B shall be hereinafter referred to as a “Party” respectively, and as the “Parties” collectively.)
Based on the principles of fairness, voluntariness, mutual negotiation and friendly cooperation, the Parties agree on the following matters regarding the provision of hashrate service by Party B and its affiliated companies (hereinafter collectively referred to as "DigiFinex") for Party A, and the payment of corresponding fees by Party A to Party B.
- Introduction of Hashrate Service and Fee
Hashraterefers to a unit of measurement of data processing capability, that is, the unit that measures the ability of a miner to perform the hashing process (decode the hash output, also called “mining”).Hashrate service (“Hashrate Service”) means the service provided by DigiFinex which involves the division of the ability of a certain number of miners to earn miningincome/crypto currency within a certain period into several standard units for sale (i.e., 1 Standard Unit=1TH/s or 1T) and the provision ofrelevant management service. Party A can obtain corresponding mining income in proportion to the specific number of units purchased for such period commencing on the date of purchase until termination of the Hashrate Service or expiry of term, provided that Party A pays the Hashrate Fee and Service Fees.
DigiFinex offers different types of Hashrate Service (fixed term or perpetual service), and Party A can choose the type of service, purchase units, and settle the hashrate fee (“Hashrate Fee”). Apart from the Hashrate Fee, Party A also needs to pay DigiFinex electricity fee, management fee, maintenance fee and emergency fee (hereinafter collectively referred to as "Service Fee(s)") to ensure the smooth operation of the miners and Hashrate Service.
1.1 Specifications of Miner Used by DigiFinex
DigiFinex will use uniform brand and model miners -AntMiner S19j Pro to perform the Hashrate Service under this Contract. The theoretical hashrate of Antminer S19j Pro is 100T±5%, and the theoretical power consumption is 30W/T. The specifications published on the DigiFinex official website shall be final.
1.2 Service Type and Hashrate Fee
If Party A purchases 25T for 1 year, which is equivalent of purchasing 25% data processing capability of a 100T Antminer S19j Pro, then Party A will enjoy 25% of the mining income earned by the miner within 1 year. If there are 100 mining machines in the DigiFinex mining farm, and the total units/hashrate of the mining farm is 10,000T (=100T×100), then Party A’s hashrate proportion = purchased units/total units from the perspective of the entire mining farm (“Hashrate Proportion”),i.e., 25/10000=0.25%. Party A will enjoy 0.25% mining income earned by all miners at the mining farm within 1 year according to the Hashrate Proportion and bear the corresponding Service Fees. For the avoidance of doubt, the number of miners in the DigiFinex mining farm will be adjusted by DigiFinex based on actual need as may be solely determined by DigiFinex.

- Withdrawal of Miner and Termination of Contract
6.1Withdrawal of Miner（forperpetualtype of service only）
In the case of accepting the perpetual Hashrate Service, Party A may redeem physical miner(s) with itspurchased units and withdraw the miner(s), by issuing a miner withdrawal notice to Party B .The detailed procedures are as follows:
1）If Party A chooses to redeem the miner, Party A must redeem at least one whole machine at a time and the corresponding miner shall be determined by DigiFinex unilaterally. At the same time, Party A needs to share the overall tear and wear of the miners, that is, 20% of the corresponding miner(s)' hashrate shall be deducted. For example, if Party A purchases 280T and Party A chooses to take away 2 sets of Antminer S19j Pro (100T×2), Party A has to redeem 2 Miners with 200T and an additional 40T (ie 100T×2×20%). After the redemption, Party A has 40T left only. Please consult the DigiFinex official staff for the specific calculation method.

DigiFinex shall continue to provide service to Party A in respect of the remaining units purchased by Party A which are not the Consumed Units.

In such a case, Party A may pay the storage fee separately, otherwise DigiFinex will deduct the storage fee from the residual value of the miner(s). For details of the storage fee, please consult DigiFinex customer service staff.
