BitNile Acquires 6 Customized Power Containers from Bitmain to House Bitcoin Antminers
LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$AP #Antminers—BitNile Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: NILE), a diversified holding company (“BitNile” or the “Company”), today announced that the Company has recently entered an agreement with Bitmain to purchase a total of 1,140 S19 XP Hydro Antminers (“XP Hydro”), along with 6 customized power containers (“Container”). The XP Hydro’s feature water cooling and a maximum hashrate of 255 TH/s at 5304W and were introduced by Bitmain in October 2022. The Company anticipates delivery of 190 XP Hydro’s and one Container per month for six consecutive months starting in July 2023.
The Company will update the market on production performance once the new Antminers have been delivered and installed.
Milton “Todd” Ault, III, the Company’s Executive Chairman, stated, “Despite the market having experienced tremendous volatility over these past many months and, more recently, failures and bankruptcies that have spawned a crypto downturn and lack of faith by some in the future of crypto, we remain committed to our strong favorable outlook with respect to Bitcoin, in our investment in the Michigan data center and our positive relationship with Bitmain. We have confidence in our long-term plans to grow our Bitcoin mining operations and our most recent purchase of additional mining equipment evidences this belief as well as in the prospects of Bitcoin itself.”
The Company noted that it anticipates by the end of 2023, a total number of 23,065 mining units will be operating.
As previously disclosed, BitNile has entered into purchase agreements with Bitmain Technologies Limited for a total of 21,925 Bitcoin miners, including 4,600 environmentally friendly S19 XP Antminers that feature an average processing power of 140 terahashes per second (“TH/s”) and 17,325 S19j Pro Antminers that feature a processing power of 100 TH/s. Once all of the miners are fully deployed and operational, BitNile expects to achieve a mining production capacity of approximately 2.67 exahashes per second.
The Company notes that all estimates and other projections are subject to the actual delivery and installation of Bitcoin miners, the volatility in Bitcoin market price, the fluctuation in the mining difficulty level, and other factors that may impact the results of production or operations.
