BTCS, Inc.

9466 Georgia Avenue #124

Silver Spring, MD 20910


Dear Sirs:


1.1 Subscription. I, the undersigned investor (the “Investor”), hereby subscribe for and agree to purchase on the terms and conditions contained in this Subscription Agreement _______________ shares of Series C-2 preferred stock (the “Shares”) of BTCS, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”). I have reviewed the Certificate of Designation filed or to be filed with the Secretary of State of Nevada attached as Exhibit A.


1.2 Subscription Payment. As payment for this subscription, within 5 business days of the execution hereof, I will wire to the Company an amount of $__________. My investment represents a firm commitment and I am obligated to purchase all the Shares.


2.1 Investor Representations and Warranties. I acknowledge, represent and warrant to, and agree with, the Company as follows:


(a) I am aware that my investment involves a high degree of risk;


(b) I acknowledge and am aware that there is no assurance as to the future performance of the Company;


(c) I am purchasing the Shares for my own account for investment and not with a view to or for sale in connection with the distribution of the Shares nor with any present intention of selling or otherwise disposing of all or any part of the Shares. I agree that I must bear the economic risk of my investment for an indefinite period of time because, among other reasons, the shares have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) or under the securities laws of any states and, therefore, cannot be resold, pledged, assigned or otherwise disposed of unless they are subsequently registered under the Securities Act and under applicable securities laws of such states or an exemption from such registration is available. I hereby authorize the Company to place a legend denoting the restriction on the certificates to be issued. I acknowledge that no public market may develop for the Shares.


(d) I further acknowledge my understanding that the Company’s reliance on such exemptions referred to in subsection (c) above are, in part, based upon the foregoing representations, warranties, and agreements by me and that the statutory basis for such exemptions would not be present, if, notwithstanding such representations, warranties and agreements, I were acquiring the Shares for resale on the occurrence or non-occurrence of some pre-determined event. In order to induce the Company to issue and sell the Shares subscribed for hereby to me, it is agreed that the Company will have no obligation to recognize the ownership, beneficial or otherwise, of such Shares or any part thereof by anyone, except as set forth herein;





(e) I have the financial ability to bear the economic risk of my investment in the Company (including its possible total loss), have adequate means for providing for my current needs and personal contingencies and have no need for liquidity with respect to my investment in the Company;


(f) I have such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits and risks of an investment in the Shares and have obtained, in my judgment, sufficient information from the Company to evaluate the merits and risks of an investment in the Company;


(g) I: _________________


(1) Have carefully read this Subscription Agreement and the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings and all subsequent filings filed with the SEC and have evaluated the risks of a purchase of the Shares and have relied solely (except as indicated in subsection (2) and (3)) on the information contained in this Subscription Agreement;


(2) Have been provided an opportunity to obtain any additional information concerning the offering, the Company and all other information to the extent the Company possesses such information or can acquire it without unreasonable effort or expense; and


(3) Have been given the opportunity to ask questions of, and receive answers from, the Company concerning the terms and conditions of the offering and other matters pertaining to this investment. In addition, as required by Section 517.061(11)(a)(3), Florida Statutes and by Rule 3E-500.05(a) thereunder, I may have, at the offices of the Company, at any reasonable hour, after reasonable prior notice, access to the materials set forth in the Rule which the Company can obtain without unreasonable effort or expense.


(h) If the undersigned is a corporation, trust, partnership, employee benefit plan, individual retirement account, Keogh Plan, or other tax-exempt entity, it is authorized and qualified to become an investor in the Company and the person signing this Subscription Agreement on behalf of such entity has been duly authorized by such entity to do so;


(i) No representations or warranties have been made to the undersigned by the Company, or any of their respective officers, employees, agents, affiliates or attorneys;


(j) The information contained in Section 2.2 of this Subscription Agreement is true and correct including any information which I have furnished and furnish to the Company with respect to my financial position and business experience, is correct and complete as of the date of this Subscription Agreement and if there should be any material change in such information prior to acceptance of my subscription, I will furnish such revised or corrected information to the Company;





(k) I hereby acknowledge and am aware that except for any rescission rights that may be provided under applicable state laws including the three day rights under Florida law, I am not entitled to cancel, terminate or revoke this subscription, and any agreements made in connection herewith shall survive my death or disability;


(l) Where applicable, I agree to be bound by any restrictions on resale of the Shares required by applicable state laws.

4.2 Remedies. In addition to being entitled to exercise all rights provided herein or granted by law, including recovery of damages, the Investor and the Company will be entitled to specific performance under this Subscription Agreement. The parties agree that monetary damages may not be adequate compensation for any loss incurred by reason of any breach of obligations contained herein (or in the Certificate of Designation) and hereby agree to waive and not to assert in any action for specific performance of any such obligation the defense that a remedy at law would be adequate.
