The delivery of miners, amounting to an additional hashrate of 450 PH / s, brings to 24,580 the total number of miners scheduled for delivery over the next 12 months.
SALT LAKE CITYOct. 12, 2021 / PRNewswire / – CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK) (the “Company” or “CleanSpark”), a sustainable bitcoin and diversified energy mining company, today announced the purchase of 4,500 units of the Antminer Bitcoin Mining Machine (BTC) S19. The purchase was partially funded by a portion of the company’s BTC holdings. Delivery of the machines is expected to start next month and end by July 2022.
The renewable energy-focused Bitcoin miner uses its own mined Bitcoins to accelerate growth, hash and reduce dilution.
CleanSpark estimates that its sustainable bitcoin mining capacity will increase by a computing power of 450 PH / s, which is equivalent to almost 45% of the company’s current capacity, once the purchased machines are fully operational.
The company expects the data center space for the machines to be ready for connection before each consecutive delivery. The Company currently operates over 10,000 miners. The total number of miners scheduled for delivery over the next 12 months is now 24,580.
In keeping with the interests of its shareholders, by selling part of its bitcoin, CleanSpark converts part of its BTC holdings into bitcoin miners to increase its revenue. CleanSpark believes that the value of digital currencies such as Bitcoin stems from their usefulness as a medium of exchange. By investing a portion of its mined bitcoins to purchase additional miners, the Company aims to get those bitcoins back into circulation. The Company also intends to pursue its holding strategy.
“By making a conscious effort to reinvest in additional production, we take a market-based approach to our mining operations and maximize value for our shareholders. We understand that using our bitcoin to support our operations and expansion is a paradigm shift for the digital currency mining industry in North America,” noted Zach Bradford, CEO of CleanSpark. “We hope to continue to dominate the market with these bold steps.”
Earlier in August, CleanSpark announcement the purchase of an old Sprint / Nextel data center at Norcross, Georgia, to start a new mining operation which should be 100% net carbon neutral, carried out by participating in Georgia Simple solar program.
CleanSpark directly owns and operates facilities in Norcross and College Park, Georgia, which will bring a combined power of 65 MW with a focus on clean and sustainable energy, as it keeps ESG at the forefront of all its efforts.
