(TSXV: CSTR) ("CryptoStar", or the "Company"), a cryptocurrency mining and data centre operator, announces today that as a consequence of failing to file its financial statements, management's discussion and analysis and related officer certifications for the financial year ended December 31, 2018 (collectively, the "Annual Filings") prior to the April 30, 2019 filing deadline under National Instrument 51-102 - Continuous Disclosure Obligations and National Instrument 52-109 - Certification of Disclosure in Issuers Annual and Interim Filings, the Company is currently noted in default on the reporting issuer lists of the Ontario Securities Commission, the Alberta Securities Commission and the British Columbia Securities Commission.
The Company has appointed Manning Elliott LLP, Chartered Professional Accountants, as its auditor and the audit of the Company's Annual Filings is ongoing.

The Company does not anticipate any delay in filing its interim financial statements, management's discussion and analysis, and the related officer certifications for the financial period ended March 31, 2019.

The Company confirms that there are no insolvency proceedings against it as of the date of this news release. The Company also confirms that there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed as of the date of this news release.
