ENTERPRISE BLOCKCHAIN PROCESSOR, TAAL, BECOMES HUT 8'S NEWEST HOSTING SERVICES PARTNER
Hut 8 Mining Corp.
has formed a hosting partnership with enterprise blockchain transaction processor Taal Distributed Information Technologies Inc.
Hut 8 will provide physical hosting and optimization services and access to competitive electrical power for 960 newly purchased digital hashing computers owned by Taal. Hut 8 will also work with Taal to make its existing fleet more efficient. Under the terms of this deal, Taal will have 960 hashing computers, using 3.2 megawatts of Hut 8 power.
Hut 8's hosting and optimization services include equipment sourcing and logistics management, white-glove installation, a dedicated client success manager (CSM), and 24-hour-a-day/seven-day-a-week physical security and technical operation teams dedicated around the clock at each site.
"At Hut 8, we are focused on diversifying our revenue-generating business model and creating catalysts for growth," said Jaime Leverton, chief executive officer of Hut 8. "Strengthening our existing hosting services line of business with strategic partners is a growth focus for the company as we continue to see more institutional players expand their investments in digital asset mining. We strive to offer our partners a best-in-class North American based option for their hosting needs."
Taal operates exclusively on the BitcoinSV blockchain to support its blockchain transaction processing business. With this new hosting partnership, Taal expects its hash rate to be at least 450 petahashes per second, well ahead of its stated goals of anticipating winning at least 30 BitcoinSV blocks per day attributed to Taal.
"We are very pleased to be working with Hut 8 as we both share a dedication to excellence and having aligned core values of limiting our impact on the environment," commented Stefan Matthews, executive chairman and chief executive officer of Taal.
