Net BTC Revenue and BTC Floor Price Calculation
|1.||Net BTC Revenue Calculation|
Net BTC Revenue represents the profit earned by MIG at the Modular Data Centre in accordance with the following formula:
BTC_Revenue = BTC_Price x BTC_Quantity
BTC_Price = a price in Australian dollars calculated by multiplying the prevailing monthly average USD price per Bitcoin, as displayed on a globally recognised exchange by the prevailing monthly average AUD to USD exchange rate, as displayed on a globally recognised exchange.
BTC_Quantity = the monthly quantity of bitcoin block rewards and transaction fees mined by MIG at the Modular Data Centre.
Electricity_Cost = the monthly Energy Charge payable by MIG.
Depreciated_Server_Cost = the agreed monthly depreciation expense for the mining server equipment in the Modular Data Centre, assuming depreciation on a straight line basis over the 2 years. MIG will share this information on an open book basis with CBM that is consistent with MIG’s internal and audited accounts.
Site_Employment_Cost = the monthly direct labour cost, without markup (justified by MIG on an open book basis) for permanent on-site staffing dedicated to operate and manage the Modular Data Centre.
Calculated BTC Floor Price
The BTC Floor Price is calculated at the end of the Billing Period in accordance with the following formula:
BTC_Floor_Price = BTC_Floor_Price_Base x Difficulty Adjustment
BTC_Floor_Price_Base = US$ 10,686 per bitcoin.
Difficulty Adjustment = Difficulty Current divided by Difficulty Base.
Difficulty_Current = The prevailing market index of difficulty, as listed on https://www.blockchain.com/charts/difficulty (or another similar industry public source if this is not available), based on the most recent difficulty level immediately prior to the end of the Billing Period.
Difficulty_Base = The prevailing market index of difficulty, as listed on https://www.blockchain.com/charts/difficulty (or another similar industry public source if this is not available), and set on 19 October 2021, at 20082460130831.

Marginal Cost of Production
The marginal cost of production is derived by multiplying the existing average annual delivered fuel price of AU$50/t for woodchip by its electricity conversion factor of 1.4t of woodchip per MWh exported. This deliver a power price of $70/MWh.
If Condong Power Station obtains its approvals to use recovered timber fuels that are not defined as “eligible waste fuels” under Section 3 of the NSW Energy from Waste Policy Statement the electricity conversion factor will remain the same but the annual average delivered fuel price is expected to reduce so that the marginal cost of production reduces by $20/MWh or more.
