HIVE is proud to continue its relationship with MicroBT through the purchase of 3,000 WhatsMiner miners which will be a mixture of M30S, M30S+ and M30S++ machines. These 3,000 miners will be delivered in 12 equal tranches of 250 miners during calendar 2022 commencing in January and ending in December. This will increase our global hash rate by 24.5 PH/s each month.
Frank Holmes, Executive Chairman of HIVE said, “The continuing work and success that our team has been able to achieve with our strategic partners during these challenging times due to the global shortages in chips and logistics delays in shipping equipment from Asia due to Covid 19 has been remarkable. As a result, we are able to increase our 2022 run-rate revenue by almost 25% with this acquisition, while positioning HIVE to realize a good ROI on capital invested, by making ASIC acquisitions at very attractive $/TH prices, all in pace with the development of our green and clean operating infrastructure. We are not saddled with needing to buy carbon offsets which helps our margins because we are focused on mining buy sourcing geothermal and hydroelectric energy.”
These miner deliveries are a result of our continuing strategy to increase our Bitcoin mining capacity which includes the sourcing of mining equipment from leading industry manufacturers like MicroBT. HIVE intends to continue to utilize cash flow to make opportunistic investments and upgrade our fleet of BTC and ETH mining equipment on a regular monthly basis.
