Marathon acquires Bitmain’s latest miners to ramp up their hash rate
Marathon Digital Holdings Inc (MARA) is America’s largest BTC mining firm. It has forged a contract with Bitmain to acquire BTC mining rigs and start using them by 2023. The company plans to use these rigs to upgrade its current hardware to enhance efficiency.
Per Fred Thiel, the CEO of Marathon, its balance sheets allow them to place such an order comfortably. He added that the target 23.3 EH/S hash rate would be an increase of 600% from the current conditions of the company.
Additionally, Fred noted that the company would have enough green energy before the 23.3 EH/S capability goes live. He thanked Bitmain for guiding them with placing the buy order successfully since they will now remain the most extensively popular BTC miners in America.
Regarding the developments, Bitmain praised Marathon Digital as among its best clients. It added that it is very happy for Marathon’s particular order, and they are optimistic about working with them in the future.
