HUT 8 ANNOUNCES PURCHASE OF M30S EQUIPMENT FROM FOUNDRY
Hut 8 Mining Corp. has provided the following corporate update.
On Nov. 30, 2021, Hut 8 signed an agreement with Foundry Digital LLC to purchase 2,505 MicroBT M30S machines that are currently installed at the company's site in Medicine Hat, Alta., under a hosting arrangement between Hut 8 and Foundry. The purchase transaction is expected to close on Dec. 15, 2021, and will provide immediate incremental hash rate of 228 petahashes per second. This fleet of miners was owned by Foundry, one of the company's hosting clients, and will boost Hut 8's self-mining operating capacity, including the Nvidia GPUs (graphics processing units), to approximately 1.94 exahashes per second.
"We are excited to add incremental capacity stemming from the Foundry purchase to our self-mining operation, especially given the fact that the equipment is already on site and hashing," commented Jaime Leverton, chief executive officer of Hut 8. "The combination of the recently deployed Nvidia CMPs [cryptocurrency mining processors] and the MicroBT M30S miners from Foundry serves to enhance both the scale and efficiency of our self-mining operations and adds momentum to our machine installations. We value our ongoing strategic relationship with Foundry and will continue to explore new partnership opportunities with them going forward."
