Advances strategy to hold bitcoins as its primary treasury reserve assets

TORONTO, ONTARIO, April 13, 2021 /Newsfile Corp. ‐ Cypherpunk Holdings Inc. (CSE: HODL,
OTC: KHRIF)
(the “Company”), a sector leader for privacy-technology investments, is pleased to
announce that it has purchased 68.16 bitcoins for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $5 million
(Canadian dollars), inclusive of fees and expenses. The average price per bitcoin was $58,092. As a result
of this acquisition, the Company now holds an aggregate of 350 bitcoins.

The purchase by the Company of additional bitcoins was made in accordance with its newly updated capital
allocation and treasury management strategy for the Company’s capital in excess of its working capital and
other investment requirements. Under the Company’s current capital allocation plan, the Company intends
to continue to maintain cash assets that are sufficient to meet the day-to-day working capital requirements
of its business and its investment needs. In addition, under this plan, the Company’s objective is to hold a
majority of its unallocated resources in bitcoin, which the Company now regards as its primary treasury
reserve asset (being all unallocated cash and bitcoin assets of the Company in excess of the Company’s
anticipated near term working capital and other investment capital needs), subject to market conditions and
the Company’s anticipated needs for cash assets.

In connection with its holdings of digital assets, such as bitcoin and any other applicable cryptocurrencies,
the Company has adopted controls to guard against the risk of loss and/or theft associated with holding such
assets. For example, the Company uses third-party custodians to safeguard all or a substantial portion of its
digital assets. Certain information about such third party custodial arrangements which the Company
believes could be important to investors is available on the Company’s website at:

Supporting VPNs and proxy services enhances Internet privacy

TORONTO, ONTARIO, Canada, March 3, 2021 – Cypherpunk Holdings Inc. (“Cypherpunk” or
the “Company”
) (CSE: HODL) a sector leader for privacy-technology investments is pleased to
announce that it has formally engaged Heficed (part of Digital Energy Technologies Ltd) to
procure at least 16,384 of IPv4 addresses. The acquired IP addresses will become a long-term
asset of the Company and will be leased out via the market-leading IPXO Ltd. platform, allowing
the Company to book operating income.

Heficed is a service provider owned by Digital Energy Technologies Ltd, based and operating in
the UK and Lithuania since 2009. Heficed clients range from large enterprises to start-ups. The
CEO of Heficed, Vincentas Grinius says: “The prices of IP addresses have drastically increased
in the last year, they are up by 35%. A single IP address costs between $20-$25. Due to the
demand and limit on supply we think this trend will continue and prices will be rising. One of the
biggest buyers is the largest e-commerce platform in the world. They have purchased 20 million
IP addresses in 2019 and another 8 million in 2020.” Heficed has been engaged on 2nd of March
2021 for an initial period of no less than 24 months.

Cypherpunk Holdings has been closely monitoring this space as the Internet of Things (IoT) is a
growing sector and IP addresses are widely used in privacy technologies such as Virtual Private
Networks (VPNs) and various cyber security applications.

The Company is further looking to lease the acquired addresses via IPXO platform. The Internet
Protocol Exchange Organisation, or IPXO, is a unique IP lease & monetization platform and
marketplace that helps to monetize unused IP resources and alleviate the IPv4 shortage problem.

Tony Guoga, the CEO of the Company, added: “When the internet was first created it was set to
just over 4 billion IPv4 addresses. Today, the world has run out of them and they have been
allocated to a very small number of large technology companies or internet service providers. A
new version of IP addresses called IPv6 has been created but the adoption rate has been
extremely slow. Just like Bitcoin, the supply is limited and this is why we think this a very
compelling investment, which we anticipate will yield a healthy return.”

IPv4 uses a 32-bit address, allowing for 4.3 billion unique addresses. IPv6 uses a 128-bit address,
which provides an immensely higher number of unique address combinations. For global
organizations, transitioning from majority IPv4 to majority IPv6 is a solution. However, this will not
be possible for everyone because less than 30% of all internet-connected networks promote IPv6
connectivity, organizations transitioning to IPv6 will have to run IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously
which is both slow and expensive.
