Increasing Hash Rate and Joint Venture in Abu Dhabi
Marathon reported an 8% increase in the installed hash rate, reaching 21.8 exahashes per second (EH/s). Additionally, the operational hash rate saw a 16% increase, amounting to 17.7 EH/s. The company’s joint venture in Abu Dhabi began its mining operations and is on track to achieve 7 EH/s by the end of the year.
As of June 30, 2023, Marathon disclosed that it had $114 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents. Furthermore, the company increased its unrestricted Bitcoin holdings to 12,538 BTC, which is equivalent to approximately $382 million.
The decrease in Bitcoin production compared to the previous month was attributed to weather-related curtailment in Texas and a significant reduction in transaction fees.
Expanding Operating Fleet
Marathon’s operating fleet now includes approximately 149,900 Bitcoin miners. With this expansion, the company theoretically has the capacity to produce around 17.7 EH/s, as of July 1, 2023.
During June, Marathon sold 700 BTC. The company plans to continue selling a portion of its Bitcoin holdings in the future to support monthly operations, manage its treasury, and fulfill general corporate purposes.
Marathon Digital Holdings is setting itself apart as a prominent player in the Bitcoin mining industry. With its commitment to sustainable operations and continuous growth, the company aims to strengthen and contribute to the Bitcoin ecosystem in North America.
