Bitcoin holdings doubled to 1,061 BTC, hashrate hit all time high of 9 exahashes per second (EH/s), and production increased 17% month over month
LAS VEGAS, Aug. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK), America’s Bitcoin Miner™, today released its unaudited bitcoin mining and operations update for the month ending July 31, 2023.
“In less than one month we brought 2.3 EH/s of capacity online and doubled our bitcoin holdings,” said CleanSpark CEO Zach Bradford. “We increased our bitcoin holdings due to what we see as substantial momentum building across the bitcoin ecosystem. This move further underscores our commitment to bitcoin and our critical role in building bitcoin infrastructure.
“We entered the bitcoin mining industry just over two-and-a-half years ago and during that time we’ve increased our hashrate to 9 EH/s. This monumental effort demonstrates the experience and grit of our teams. They are our secret sauce—the reason our operations have scaled so successfully. We are now on a journey to nearly double our size to 16 EH/s in the next half of the year. During this time of rapid growth we will also be turning our attention to filling any gaps and optimizing our fleet to further boost our hashrate and efficiency. I look forward to providing further insights on our past and future efforts on our earnings call next week.”
