TORONTO, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/
The company will buy the 960 Whatsminer M31S+ machines from hosting client TAAL from May 1
Hat 8 Mining Corp. (Nasdaq: HUT) (TSX: HUT) (“Hut 8” or “the Company”), one of North America’s leading pioneers in innovation-driven digital asset mining, supporting open and decentralized systems since 2018, today announced an agreement to have met with TAAL to complete its hosting relationship and purchase 960 MicroBT-Whatsminer M31S+ machines starting May 1, 2022. ASIC miners are currently installed and operated on behalf of TAAL at the company’s mining facility in Medicine Hat, Canada.
The machines should provide an instant incremental hashrate of 81 PH/s, increasing Hut 8’s hashrate to 2.62 EH/s.
“The increased capacity will provide an immediate hashrate advantage as ASIC miners are already onsite, installed and hashing,” said Jaime Leverton, Managing Director of Hut 8. “Over the past 18 months, we have pursued a strategy that is unique in our environment: in addition to digital asset mining, we support our clients with high-performance computing, cloud hosting and colocation services across our five Canadian data centers to that they can succeed in the emerging blockchain and Web 3.0 industries.”
Once the acquisition is complete, Hut 8’s operations will be fully self-sufficient at all mine sites.
