Core Scientific Bitcoin Mining Decreases While Hashrate Increases
Core Scientific, a Bitcoin miner and hosting service, mined 1,213 BTC in September, a 9% decrease from the previous month.
According to an operational update, the business increased its self-mining hash rate by 2.4%.
Furthermore, the corporation reduced electricity in numerous locations, including Texas, for a total of 8,774 megawatt hours.
Mike Levitt, Core Scientific Chief Executive Officer, stated:
“We continued growing our infrastructure and operating servers in September. Bitcoin production was impacted across the company’s data centers due to several unique circumstances, including severe weather events and electrical equipment manufacturer defects.
Despite these challenges, Core Scientific continued to lead the industry in Bitcoin production. We produced 1,213 Bitcoins for our own account. We expanded our total fleet (owned and colocated) to approximately 232,000 servers representing approximately 22.5 EH/s. I am proud of our team’s resilience, adaptability and dedication in the face of difficult industry conditions.”
The 9.26% rise in mining difficulty reported on August 31 (the greatest since January) was also anticipated to have an impact on operations.
Core Scientific made $32.2 million in income by selling 1,576 BTC at an average price of $20,460. It has 1,051 BTC and $29.5 million in cash as of September 30.
The mining unit of insolvent lender Celsius filed a request last week to impose the automatic stay against Core Scientific, which supplies hosting services to it. Celsius also claimed that Core Scientific breached the terms of its bankruptcy.
