CleanSpark announces additional 1,000 unit ASIC bitcoin miner order for January
Salt Lake City— CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK), (“CleanSpark, or the Company”), an advanced software and controls technology solutions company, focused on solving modern energy challenges, is pleased to announce that it has secured an additional 1,000 ASICs (Application-specific integrated circuit) Bitcoin miners, slated for delivery and commissioning in the coming month. This order, when paired with the 500 ASICs announced last week and installation of the new S19s, is expected to increase the Company’s mining capacity by more than 100 PH/s to approximately 300 PH/s.
“We are excited about demonstrating the efficiency of microgrid solutions on high-density energy operations. As we work towards the implementation of the facility power system upgrade, our focus is on maximizing the total Bitcoin output by immediately adding ASICs. In the Bitcoin mining industry, time is money, and due to the meteoric rise in price, ASIC miners are exceedingly difficult to procure. Many mining companies, both publicly traded and privately held, have stated plans to expand capacity in six to nine months, however we have focused on sourcing units for immediate deployment. As Bitcoin prices have continued to rise, and industry leaders such as Square, PayPal, MicroStrategy and others have made substantial investments in Bitcoin, we believe this strategy will provide exceptional returns for our shareholders,” stated Zachary Bradford, CleanSpark’s president and chief executive officer. “This opportunity presented us a chance to deploy additional resources in furtherance of our strategy to utilize the available energy supply in the most efficient and profitable manner possible,” concluded Bradford.
