Bitcoin Shop, Inc. Provides Update on New Facility and an Inside Look at Its Transaction Verification Service Operation

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2015) - Bitcoin Shop, Inc. (OTCQB: BTCS) ("BTCS" or the "Company"), which is undertaking the build-out of a universal digital currency ecosystem, announced today that the Company anticipates having its new transaction verification services facility online in 1-4 weeks. The company has acquired additional servers to bring its total hashing power (once online) to almost 1 Petahash.

The new operations will be housed in the Company's recently secured 83,000 square foot facility. BTCS Chief Executive Officer Charles Allen filmed a short video tour of its facility to help its investors better understand its operations. The video can be seen here: http://youtu.be/0ocO9okqccU

The Company's transaction verification services business, or digital currency mining, entails running specialized servers which solve a set of prescribed calculations to add a block of verified information to the blockchain and thereby confirm bitcoin transactions. When BTCS is successful in adding a block to the blockchain, it is issued new bitcoins.

In addition, BTCS is the lead investor in GoCoin, a leading payment processor. GoCoin announced yesterday that it has partnered with RE/MAX London to accept digital currency for property rentals.
