Emerging Investment Vehicle for Commercial Real Estate with Energy Footprints in Opportunity Zones Now Utilizes SG Blocks Safe & Green Containers
ATLANTA, GA, April 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Blockchain Holdings Capital Ventures, Inc. ( OTC: BHCV) (“BHCV” or the “Company”) a holding company with a focus on acquiring a diversified set of cash flowing assets including commercial real estate, energy and technology companies, has signed a master service agreement with SG Blocks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGBX), a leading designer, fabricator and innovator of container-based structures, as the firm’s sole partner in designing and fabricating its single and multi-container data centers. These low-cost, decentralized innovative data centers will offer secure and affordable solutions for BHCV’s customers—including built-in disaster recovery options.
The first prototype units are expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2019. BHCV will then establish a sales distribution channel to scale production of data centers, with an anticipated volume of 150-200 units by 2020.
“We’re proud to partner with Blockchain Holdings and begin working with them to create safe, durable data centers,” said Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks. “The acceleration of data usage is creating a huge demand for new types of data centers and is a natural extension of SG Blocks’ expertise. We look forward to delivering results for Blockchain Holdings as soon as later this year.”
“Blockchain Holdings is thrilled to collaborate with the leading container-based modular company on this project,” said Delray Wannemacher, Chairman and CEO of Blockchain Holdings Capital Ventures. “We know SG Blocks will execute this to the highest level of quality and ensure our data centers are safe, secure structures – commanding the trust of our customers for years to come.”
While the majority of data centers will be fixed, BHCV will also be rolling out mobile data centers, which can be launched at much lower prices and often in a modular fashion—allowing for additional capacities to be easily added as needed. The mobile data centers could be strategically placed in remote areas in reach of lower power prices, while still retaining the added benefit of being able to be relocated to regions of lower energy costs should the current prices become excessive. These factors, and the robust nature of such mobile centers lets BHCV offer a full solution to static data centers – ensuring competitive pricing levels, capacities and added value services.

It was the first container-based construction company recognized by the International Code Council with an ESR number. Clients have included Starbucks, Marriott, Taco Bell, Aman, Equinox and several branches of the U.S. military.
