Marathon will purchase 10,000 Bitmain S19 Pro miners
The new batch of ASIC miners is expected to be delivered in January 2021 and installed by the end of the first quarter. Once the flagship devices are in operation, the total number will reach 23,560.
At Marathon, the company-generated hash rate is expected to rise to 2.56 EH/s by June.
„This will make us the largest standalone miner in North America,“ said Merrick Okamoto, CEO of Marathon.
Earlier Marathon bought 10,500 S19 Pro Bitcoin Revolution miners from Bitmain for $23 million.
In October, Riot Blockchain placed an additional order for 2,500 Antminer devices from the manufacturer of mining equipment.
By June 2021, the total number of ASIC-mainers operating under the company’s management will reach 22,640 units, and the generated hash rate will exceed 2 EH/s.
