Explanation of Responses:
(1)  Pursuant to the Riot Blockchain Inc. 2019 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended (the "Equity Plan") each service-based restricted stock unit ("RSUs") and each performance-based restricted stock units ("PSUs) represents a contingent right to receive one share of the Issuer's common stock, no par value per share, ("Common Stock") following vesting and settlement by the Issuer. Under the Equity Plan, the Issuer may elect to satisfy any tax withholding obligations due in connection with the conversion of vested RSUs and PSUs via net settlement of the vested award by withholding shares of Common Stock to cover the tax due, as permitted under the Equity Plan and approved by the Issuer's Compensation and Human Resources Committee (the "Committee").
(2)  Represents the total direct and indirect ownership of the indicated security held by the Reporting Person immediately following the reported transaction.
(3)  Represents net settlement for taxes due in connection with the conversion reported on the foregoing line of this report.
(4)  The conversion of 2,488 vested RSUs reported in Table II relates to the settlement by the Issuer of the remaining unsettled portion of the 9,949 RSUs granted to the Reporting Person on May 26, 2021, which vested in four quarterly installments after the grant date.
(5)  The conversion of 26,000 PSUs reported in Table II represents the settling by the Issuer of the vested portion of the PSUs granted to the Reporting Person August 12, 2021 pursuant to the Reporting Person's Award Agreement, which vested upon the Committee's determination that performance criteria corresponding to the PSUs granted to the Reporting Person had been achieved.

Remarks:
The Reporting Person is an Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of the Issuer and is the Chief Executive Officer of its subsidiary, Whinstone US, Inc.
