New Bitcoin Miners
The addition of those 10,500 subsequent technology miners, will increase HIVE’s mixture working hash price from Bitcoin mining to an estimated 2.474 EH/s or 2,474 PH/s by the tip of 2021.
This new gear, sourced via our rising community, is coming from 2 completely different sources to cut back our dependency on one provider, and cut back provider supply danger. The primary provider is offering 9,000 subsequent technology miners with an mixture hash price of 666 PH/s. This gear is predicted to be delivered in 5 tranches, with 1,000 miners in June, and a pair of,000 miners in every of the months of September, October, November and December 2021.

New GPU Miners
We’re working each day to each improve our Swedish facility and develop our capability with the acquisition of further GPU chips to mine Ethereum. Like ASIC chips are in restricted provide so are GPU chips.
This often means the limitations to entry by new mining gamers is sort of restricted which is bullish for current miners’ revenue margins. It is vitally troublesome to supply chips and the secondary prices to amass mining gear may be very costly with for much longer pay backs, which we imagine is sort of dangerous. We’ve been frugal within the prices to amass new mining gear.
