Chapmans used the funding to acquire a 19.99% stake in GPU.One.

GPU.One is currently producing revenue of US$365,000 per month — a number that should increase to US$4,000,000 per month (circa June 2018), once the project is scaled up. Bitcoin hit US$9,000 this morning — a four-week high. Assuming cryptocurrencies continue to surge in the weeks ahead, Chapmans share price could rocket higher.

That said, should the crypto market crash — the worst case scenario — the GPU facilities can be converted to a data processing/storage centre, with potential revenues of US$7 million-plus per month. The company is also in the process of acquiring other blockchain investments, worth roughly $11 million.

Chapmans market capitalisation is trading at $11 million at 0.8 cents per share, with plenty of cash in the bank.
