Commentary from the CEO:
Commenting on the 2020 fiscal year, Pär-Olof Johannesson, Terranet’s Chief Executive Officer, said,

“The Startup Autobahn Expo hosted by Mercedes-Benz on February 25, 2021, was a tremendous success for Terranet. The Expo was an opportunity for the company to showcase our first prototype, with our key customers and strategic partners in attendance. This marks the first, largest and single most important achievement in the development of VoxelFlow™.

We are now closing the door on an eventful and successful year, where our development efforts have been focused on our unique, patented VoxelFlow™ technology. 

The interest and continued commitment from Mercedes-Benz demonstrate how important this solution will be to achieving Terranet’s vision – to contribute to the reduction in the number of road traffic fatalities. Following the successful demo at Startup Autobahn, the company’s strategic vision is for its VoxelFlow™ technology to be implemented in one of the Group’s future programs.

VoxelFlow™ is an innovative, patented technology built on a unique algorithm and software that is suitable for a broad range of applications, including advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). This one-of-a-kind technology is designed to enable object detection and collision warning in vehicles. The technology relies on three-dimensional laser triangulation and a specialized camera sensor with real-time resolution. VoxelFlow™'s blue lasers create a 3D point cloud. Used together with sensors integrated into a vehicle’s windshield and headlights, an advanced system is created that can determine position, movement pattern and direction of travel relative to a vehicle with extreme precision. VoxelFlow™ generates data that is used by the vehicle’s automated steering and braking systems to avoid collisions with pedestrians.
VoxelFlow™ is the culmination of a paradigm shift in image analysis, but it is much more than that: it is redundancy technology that simultaneously challenges the existing radar and LIDAR systems available on the market today. The ongoing development of VoxelFlow™ is being carried out in close collaboration with a number of industry partners and academic institutions.
During the financial year, development efforts yielded further improvements to our VoxelFlow™ technology, going from processing about one hundred voxels per second to processing almost 250,000 voxels per second. By the end of the next financial year, the goal is for VoxelFlow™ to be able to process over one million voxels per second. We have our sights on a number of application areas for VoxelFlow™ beyond ADAS, including vehicle infotainment systems.

The pandemic continues to put a couple of other business opportunities on hold, including the Imagineering project with Walt Disney. We are confident that this project will come to fruition and will ultimately be completed in its entirety.

Terranet’s in-depth collaboration with the management consulting firm AFRY puts us in a strong position to take on broader assignments and expand our operations further in the service business segment.
Terranet is excited to welcome a new management team with Michaela Berglund stepping in as CMO, Johan Wångblad as CFO, Simon Morris as VP Sales and new Chairman of the Board Göran Janson. The 2020 financial year also saw the company welcome two new major long-term owners.

The company’s operations are now being scaled up on several levels. This primarily involves the recruitment of top talent to ensure that our established development plan can be achieved.

We are extremely pleased with the trust our investors placed in us this year. Through the issue carried out last spring with the redemption of warrants in the autumn, the company raised approximately MSEK 70 in 2020, which will ensure the company has the capital it needs to scale up its operations. Going forward, we are very optimistic that we will sign additional agreements with some of the leading actors in the industry. We would like to thank all of our partners and employees for being part of what has proven to be yet another eventful year for Terranet.”

DBT offers hash rates of 750 TH/s, 70 GH/s, 5 GH/s, and 5 MH/s, for bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum, and monero respectively. On the other hand, for GBT Miner, the hash power in the same order are 2250 TH/s, 210 GH/s, 15 GH/s, and 15 MH/s. The power consumptions for these two units are 900W and 2200W respectively. Based on figures mentioned above, monthly profit making potential of the two units is as mentioned below. DBT Miner: $7,500 (Bitcoin), $13,000 (Litecoin), $13,000 (Ethereum), and $15,000 (Monero)GBT Miner: $22,500 (Bitcoin
