SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK) (the "Company" or "CleanSpark"), a sustainable bitcoin mining and diversified energy company, today announced its purchase of 4,500 units of the Antminer S19 bitcoin (BTC) mining machine. The purchase was partially funded through a portion of the Company's BTC holdings. Delivery of the machines are scheduled to start next month and be completed by July 2022.
CleanSpark estimates that its sustainable bitcoin mining capacity will increase by a computing power of 450 PH/s, equivalent to almost 45% of the Company's current capacity, after the purchased machines are fully operational.
The Company expects to have the data center space for the machines ready to plug and play before each consecutive delivery. The Company currently operates over 10,000 miners. The total number of miners slated for delivery over the next 12 months is now 24,580.
In line with the interests of its shareholders, by selling some of its bitcoin, CleanSpark is converting a portion of its BTC holdings into bitcoin miners to increase revenues. CleanSpark believes that the value of digital currencies such as Bitcoin stems from their usefulness as a medium of exchange. By investing a portion of its mined bitcoins to buy additional miners, the Company aims to put those bitcoins back into circulation. The Company also intends to continue its holding strategy.
"By making a conscious effort to reinvest in additional production, we are taking a market-based approach to our mining operations and maximizing value for our shareholders. We understand that using our bitcoin to support our operations and expansion is a paradigm shift for the digital currency mining industry in North America," said Zach Bradford, CEO of CleanSpark. "We hope to continue to lead the market with these bold moves."
Earlier in August, CleanSpark announced the purchase of a former Sprint/Nextel datacenter in Norcross, Georgia, to start a new mining operation that is expected to be 100% net carbon-neutral, achieved by participating in Georgia's Simple Solar program.
CleanSpark directly owns and operates facilities in Norcross and College Park, Georgia, that will bring a combined 65MW with a focus on clean and sustainable energy as it keeps ESG at the forefront of all its efforts.
CleanSpark, Inc., a Nevada corporation, is an energy technology and clean bitcoin mining Company that is focused on solving modern energy challenges. For more information about the Company, please visit the Company's website at https://www.cleanspark.com/investor-relations.
