Neptune Announces Investment in SpaceX and Corporate Update

Neptune Announces Investment in SpaceX and Corporate Update

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – July 6, 2022 – Neptune Digital Assets Corp. (TSX-V:NDA) (OTC:NPPTF) (FSE:1NW) (“Neptune” or the “Company“), a blockchain technology and cryptocurrency leader in Canada, is pleased to announce that it has invested approximately $2 million USD into SpaceX (Space Exploration Technologies Corp.).

SpaceX is an American spacecraft manufacturer, space launch provider, and satellite communications provider. SpaceX was founded in 2002 by Elon Musk and has the goal of reducing the cost of space transportation and to enable the colonization of Mars.

The Neptune investment into SpaceX is through an arms-length party. “Despite a financial bear market, we see investing in growth opportunities as critical to the long-term growth of Neptune. Neptune has been frugal and has retained a substantial cash balance allowing us to capitalize on new opportunities. Our investment in SpaceX, while not our core business, provides our shareholders with exposure to what we believe to be one of the most exciting technology companies of our time. This investment further diversifies our balance sheet while providing additional potential upside to shareholders.” – Cale Moodie, CEO & President

Corporate Update: Neptune Remains in a Strong Financial Position

Neptune is pleased to provide shareholders with a brief financial update during these exceptionally poor macro market conditions. Neptune has approximately $44 million in assets at the time of writing with no debt and a comfortable cash position of over $19 million. This puts Neptune in a very strong position to acquire additional assets and cryptocurrency at substantial discounts. Neptune’s approach has always been one of conservative, diversified investments and a dollar cost average strategy on acquisition of both Bitcoin mining rigs and cryptocurrency. This has served Neptune well in downturn markets such as the one we are in. Current earnings per month range from $250,000 to $300,000 at current crypto prices with monthly expenses of approximately $115,000 per month.

Currently, Neptune has approximately $880,000 USD in assets within a Celsius earnings account which are unable to be withdrawn. Neptune has not been affected by any other recent defaults or potential bankruptcies that Neptune is aware of at this time.

WISeKey successfully launched its First IoT Picosatellites WISeSat–1 and WISeSat–2 on January 13th with SpaceX Transporter 3 Rideshare Mission Aboard a Falcon 9 Vehicle

WISeKey successfully launched its First IoT Picosatellites WISeSat–1 and WISeSat–2 on January 13th with SpaceX Transporter 3 Rideshare Mission Aboard a Falcon 9 Vehicle

First customer project dedicated to smart agriculture and IoT to be deployed with EPRINSA, a Spanish state-owned I.T. company

These are the first units joining a constellation of 80 pico-satellites planned for 2022, and will allow to provide cost-effective and secure connectivity to large IoT ecosystems requiring a seamless data coverage anywhere on earth.

The launch recording can be viewed on https://www.spacex.com/launches/index.html

Geneva, Switzerland – January 13th, 2022: WISeKey International Holding Ltd (“WISeKey “) (SIX: WIHN, NASDAQ: WKEY), a leading global cybersecurity, AI, Blockchain and IoT company, today announced the successful launch of its first IoT connectivity satellites aboard SpaceX transporter rideshare 3 mission.

With this launch, WISeKey is kickstarting WISeSAT, a brand-new-offering-satellite-based secure IoT connectivity-as-a-service. WISeSAT offers the satellite platform, launch, integration, ground station services and the all the security architecture and components, as part of a turnkey SaaS solution for low-power and secure space-based IoT connectivity. This reduces the complexity and cost of the communication link for the end customer and sets the benefits of space technology and embedded security within the reach of every IoT business.

Miniaturization enables cost reduction to a level that positions the WISeSAT offering, as a competitive solution, even compared to traditional ground-based connectivity like NBIoT networks. Thus, any company could virtually afford such dedicated satellites to provide connectivity to any size of ecosystems.

Indeed, a first customer project dedicated to smart agriculture and IoT is already on its way with EPRINSA, a Spanish state-owned I.T. company. Six provinces of Spain have been involved in the project and are considering using the WISeSAT constellation for data acquisition of hundreds of thousands of sensors located in territories not normally covered by traditional ground-based networks.

The satellites have been designed and developed in partnership with FOSSA Systems, a leading aerospace company focused on developing picosatellites for IoT communications. Both, WISeSat-1 and WISeSat-2, will be managed from the ground by the recently installed control station. based in La Línea de la Concepcion, Spain, as announced in December 2021, by the two companies.

Satellites, nodes and sensors, all feature hardware security by design, incorporating a VaultIC® 4XX secure element, providing FIPS 140-2 level 3 and Common Criteria EAL 5+ Certification. The secure element, provisioned with a trusted identity using WISeKey’s VaultITrust to secure provisioning services, enables authentication of the sensor and data encryption, under the framework of a PKI-based security architecture. Additionally, WISeKey’s Certificate Lifecycle Management services (INeS), can provide the user interface and automation features to handle onboarding, commissioning and lifecycle management of the devices and sensors. This complete, device-to-cloud, state-of-the-art suite of services in IoT security architecture, can only be currently found at WISeKey as a standalone one-piece vertical solution.

WISeKey and FOSSA Systems are also working on the development of secure nodes and gateways with VaultIC® microcontrollers, creating a full ecosystem of secure devices, able to communicate with WISeSat, using standardized communication modules.

“This technology, which WISeKey intends to offer to its IoT clients in a SaaS model, creates another revenue stream for the Company. By using this technology, companies seeking to securely connect their assets, would be able to have both remote and redundant urban IoT communications and at the same time, have the ability of covering large and unserved geographic areas such as maritime, deserts, and mountains, at an affordable cost,” said Carlos Moreira, CEO of WISeKey.
