Mawson Infrastructure Group Purchases Additional ASIC Bitcoin Mining Hardware; Expects Major Deployment to Begin Later This Month
Canaan’s A1166 ASIC miners now deployed and operational at Mawson Infrastructure’s mining operations in the United States, with latest generation A1246 units to follow in June
SYDNEY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mawson Infrastructure Group (OTCQB:MIGI), a Digital Infrastructure provider with diversified operations across bitcoin mining and digital asset management, announces the purchase of 800 units of next-generation Avalon 1166 bitcoin miners from Canaan Inc (CAN:NAS).
The new units were delivered in late May and are now fully operational, adding 60 PetaHash to Mawson’s operations in the United States.
James Manning, CEO and Founder of Mawson Infrastructure, said, “We are adding to our operational output, at a time when the industry is suffering from both a shortage of ASIC bitcoin miner supply and high-quality locations to deploy mining hardware. This deployment is expected to add to our revenue and profitability moving forward.”
The A1166, one of Canaan’s latest AvalonMiner models, is a SHA256 mining rig, which produces a stable hash rate of 75TH/s with a power efficiency of 47J/TH, making it one of the more efficient ASIC miners on the market today.
In addition, Mawson expects to receive an additional 1176 Canaan A1246 units which have been shipped and are expected to be operational later this month, adding another ~100 PH at our facility in Georgia, U.S, bringing total deployments for May and June to 160 PetaHash.
The deployment of additional A1246 units is expected to continue monthly to January 2022.
