TORONTO, ONTARIO, June 22, 2021. ‐ Cypherpunk Holdings Inc. (CSE: HODL, OTC:
KHRIF) (the “Company”), a sector leader for privacy technology investments, is pleased to
announce it has joined the Cypherpunk Guild Council on NEAR Protocol, which is focused on
funding the deployment of the next generation of privacy solutions.

Chief Economist and director of Cypherpunk Holdings, Jon Matonis, has joined the Cypherpunk
Guild Council as a representative of the Company. The Cypherpunk Guild Council is a new
initiative funded entirely by the NEAR Foundation in order to support the development of privacy
infrastructure on the NEAR Protocol blockchain platform and beyond, and to increase the overall
deal flow for the sector.

“Cypherpunk Holdings’ support for the Cypherpunk Guild Council is rooted in our belief that
privacy solutions must be encouraged and actively developed across different crypto ecosystems,”
said Mr. Matonis. “As an organization that seeks to embody the original cypherpunk mission, we
look forward to supporting a host of new privacy applications that will both strengthen the
community over time and engage a new generation of users. Through its participation in the
Cypherpunk Guild Council, the Company aims to benefit from early deal flow access to investment
opportunities”

Seeded with 100,000 NEAR, the Cypherpunk Guild is led by second-generation cypherpunks Arto
Bendiken and Frank Braun. The initiative was created to incubate a community of privacy
advocates, developers and entrepreneurs interested in building robust privacy solutions on NEAR
Protocol.

hold a direct influence and voice on the funding and resource allocation of the Guild. Since
launching in early April, the Cypherpunk Guild Council has funded two projects to fully develop
privacy transactions on NEAR Protocol, Suter Shield and Zecrey. Support is actively being
provided to a third project: ZeroPool.
