Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement


On March 22, 2017, BTCS Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Settlement Agreement and Note (the “CSC Agreement”) with CSC Leasing Company (“CSC”) with respect to the equipment lease schedule entered into between CSC and the Company (the “CSC Lease”). The Company leased Bitmain S7 servers and power supplies (the “Servers”) from CSC starting on February 2, 2016 for $12,053 per month for a term of 36 months. Prior to the CSC Agreement the Company owed CSC $91,823 in accrued and unpaid monthly lease payments and interest, and had a continuing monthly payment obligation totaling $277,225 over the remaining term of the CSC Lease for an aggregate liability of $369,048.


Pursuant to the CSC Agreement the Company has agreed to: i) issue CSC 833,333 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Shares”), and ii) pay CSC $200,000 (the “Cash Payment”). The Shares and Cash Payment constitute the total payment to CSC with respect to the termination and release from the CSC Lease. The Company agreed to endorse and deliver to CSC the insurance check it received from Erie Insurance in the amount of $84,278 which will be credited against the Cash Payment. The remaining $115,722 Cash Payment is due in full by March 31, 2018 and is subject certain payment terms including 10% annual interest, subject to periodic increase, as set forth in the CSC Agreement.


As a result of the Company’s default on the CSC Lease and prior to the CSC Agreement, the Company forfeited its $25,000 security deposit with CSC and returned to CSC the remaining leased Servers in the Company’s possession.


The foregoing does not purport to be a complete description of the terms of the CSC Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the agreement, which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. Readers should review this agreement for a complete understanding of the terms and conditions associated with the transaction.
