Neptune Completes Strategic Acquisition of 26,964 Solana at 67% Discount to Market Price

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – March 27, 2024 – Neptune Digital Assets Corp. (TSX-V: NDA) (OTCQB: NPPTF) (FSE: 1NW) (“Neptune” or the “Company”), one of the first publicly traded blockchain companies in Canada, is pleased to announce a growth milestone for its proof-of-stake operations with the acquisition of 26,964 Solana (SOL) tokens, a leading proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain protocol.

Neptune successfully negotiated a strategic purchase of 26,964 Solana, one of the fastest-growing blockchain ecosystems, at USD$64 per SOL token, representing a 67% discount to current market value of USD$193 (at time of writing) per SOL. This investment underscores Neptune’s commitment to identifying and capitalizing on high-potential opportunities within the digital asset space. Neptune’s new Solana balance is now 31,181 tokens, all of which are staked and earning rewards.

As part of its growth strategy, Neptune has been actively growing its staking business line, where it either delegates tokens or operates nodes to secure PoS blockchain networks and earn rewards. These rewards contribute to Neptune’s revenue streams, enhancing value for shareholders. With Solana’s PoS mechanism, Neptune anticipates generating approximately a 7.5% annual yield from its Solana staking line. The Solana tokens acquired by Neptune will be locked and staked. The tokens will be released as follows:

  • 80% will be released linearly on a monthly basis until January 2028;
  • 20% will be released in March 2025;
  • Solana will be staked and earn staking rewards during the lock period (current yield is approximately 7.5%, however this is subject to fluctuation).

Cale Moodie, CEO of Neptune, commented, “Our growing focus on proof-of-stake cryptocurrencies such as Solana, Polkadot, and Atom aligns with our commitment to generating sustainable revenue streams in the rapidly evolving blockchain ecosystem. Solana’s staking rewards, combined with its robust infrastructure, present an attractive opportunity for Neptune to generate revenue while contributing to the security and decentralization of the Solana network. This is a remarkable opportunity to grow our assets and revenues at a substantial discount to prevailing market prices.”

Solana has emerged as a leader in the blockchain industry, offering lightning-fast transaction speeds and low fees, making it a strong platform for decentralized applications (dApps) and decentralized finance (DeFi) projects. With this strategic investment, Neptune positions itself at the forefront of innovation within the blockchain space.
