CleanSpark, an American-based Bitcoin mining company, has announced that it acquired 3,843 units of Antminer S19 pro-Bitcoin mining machine at an approximate cost of $6 million, bringing the total machines purchased by the company since the bear market to a staggering 26,500.
Zach Bradford, the CleanSpark chief executive officer, said.
“This most recent purchase demonstrates how CleanSpark continues to execute in distressed markets. Our unwavering focus on sustainability has provided us with a strong balance sheet and operating strategy that has allowed us to acquire machines at incredible prices, grow our hash rate, and increase our daily bitcoin production in anticipation of market conditions improving over the next several months.”
CleanSpark Purchases So Far
In late Q3 2022, CleanSpark said it had purchased a 36MW facility in Washington, Georgia, which included the machines. Later on, in September, the crypto mining firm went ahead and bought an additional 10k new Bitmain Antminer S19j pro units. Early last month, in October, the company went further to acquire an 80MW facility in Sandersville, Georgia; the property housed over 6,500 mining machines.
These successive purchases can best be described as top-up purchases as it continued to drive their expansion. In June, CleanSpark kicked off the summer with a purchase contract takeover of 1,800 Antminer S19 XP units and a partnership with TMGCore Inc. for an immersion cooling expansion.
In July, the company, in a bid to increase its mining capacity by 93 PH/s, acquired 1,061 Whatsminer machines at discounted prices.
CleanSpark uses renewable energy or low carbon source to power its machines. It currently has four major operational facilities with a total of 50,000 bitcoin mining machines and a daily production rate of 19.2 Bitcoin.
Their purchases are paying dividends because their combined hash rate has hit its year-end guidance mark of 5 EH/s, forcing them to raise their year-end guidance to 5.5 EH/s.
The company expects to hit a 22.4 EH/s year-end guidance by 2023, making it one of the world’s largest publicly traded bitcoin mining companies.
