EZ BLOCKCHAIN IS ON THE MISSION TO SOLVE GLOBAL WASTE ENERGY PROBLEM WITH THE HELP OF CRYPTO MINING
WE UTILIZE BITCOIN’S HIGH POWER CONSUMPTION AS A TOOL TO CAPTURE LEAKING METHANE FROM CAPPED WELLS, FLARED GAS AND VENTED GAS
EZ Blockchain was born in 2017 with the mission to get the best technology into crypto miners’ hands. The company started as a provider of data center hosting solutions for high density computing such as proof-of-work blockchain also known as crypto mining.
The first EZ Blockchain office was opened in Chicago in 2017. The company culture was one of self-supporting excitement. Bitcoin and crypto mining were fast-moving markets. And once the team pivoted to focus on energy, they collectively knew they were building something big.
The company has diversified its revenue streams by participating in proprietary crypto mining. The team helped miners over the transformation of GPU to ASICs computation around that same time. In the company’s first year, there was such high demand that they started providing data center hosting solutions in addition to equipment.
By early 2018, EZ Blockchain was already developing its first line of high-density computing modular data centers. These were mobile data centers retrofitted into shipping containers. The idea was that the container could be easily moved to follow the cheapest source of energy.
EZ Blockchain opened a new mobile data center site 1.5-hour drive from Chicago. The new location, comprised of three data centers, is projected to deploy up to 3 megawatts (MW) of power — but has the capacity for 6 MW.
The company grew its focus on wasted energy, specifically on flared gas, stranded gas and landfill gas. We developed a mobile flaring mitigation system available to be deployed right on oil pads to reduce flaring, called EZ Smartgrid, which consists of a gas electric generator and a Smartbox — a mobile data center filled with crypto mining equipment.
Throughout 2019, EZ Blockchain has been preparing to expand the business by building bitcoin mining containers manufacturing.
EZ Blockchain launched the EZ Smartbox 3.0, a 40 ft container size mobile unit with its extraordinary efficiency and power capacity for cryptocurrency mining operations. Smartbox 3.0 is designed to stay ahead of the fast-paced environment by providing full plug-and-play mobile data centers within a reasonable upfront cost.
EZ Blockchain installed the first mobile data center filled with MicroBt Whatsminer crypto mining equipment almost 1MW of power consumption at the site of a Silver Energy client in Alberta, Canada. The project installation took three days and the data centers were fully operational by March 2021.
Wesco Operating, Inc. installed the EZ Smartgrid Flaring Mitigation System by EZ Blockchain, reducing flaring from 240,000 scf per day to 0. The client’s goal was to eliminate flaring at their gas processing plant and monetize the flared gas in an alternative way by doing crypto mining on-site.

EZ Blockchain is an official sponsor of the Bitcoin 2021 Conference in Miami. Sergii Gerasymovych, Co-Founder and CEO of EZ Blockchain, moderated a panel discussion “How Bitcoin Mining Fixes Our Energy Problems”.
Mass production of the new mobile data centers with immersion cooling Smartbox 1500i was started.
EZ Blockchain Introduced its Immersion Cooling Crypto Mining Container to the market – Smartbox 1500i. This engineering breakthrough has a 20ft container footprint while being a lightweight data center capable of operating up to 288 of the newest generation cryptocurrency miners with the electrical infrastructure that gives hash rate increase up to 40%.
EZ Blockchain is an official sponsor of the Bitcoin 2022 Conference in Miami. Sergii Gerasymovych, Co-Founder and CEO of EZ Blockchain, participated in a panel titled “Building New Grids.” EZ Blockchain launched a new line of business – Hosting Services. We started building hosting facilities to enter new energy markets.
The Ranger I project (GA) is completed
EZ Blockchain expanded its facilities to 16 MWs in Georgia by tapping into underutilized energy on the grid. The company invested in total of over $1 million into the area to tap into this energy, hiring only local contractors. Additionally, EZ Blockchain created 8 full-time and well-paying tech jobs. The Ranger II project (GA) is completed.
The Coffee I project (GA) is completed. EZ Blockchain generated jobs and revenue for the local community and to do it in such a way that we were not a bother to the community.
The Flower I project (KS) is completed. EZ Blockchain established a good working relationship with a miner manufacturer and worked with wasted wind energy to transform it into a new revenue stream in cryptocurrency.
As the first company in the world that created a mobile solid frame mining container and an industry leader of portable data center manufacturing, we see that the world needs bitcoin mining to be green and go towards null carbon emission. Instead of just buying carbon credits, we run an extra mile to find unutilized or wasted energy in isolated locations to bring jobs and technologies to local communities while mining bitcoin.
