TORONTO & BROSSARD, Québec–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bitfarms Ltd. (“Bitfarms”, or the “Company”) (TSXV: BITF), is pleased to announce that it has taken delivery of an additional 1,000 new generation T3 miners. Once fully operational, the mining hardware is expected to add approximately 50 petahash per second (“PH/s”) of new Bitcoin-focused hash power, increasing the Company’s installed computing power to ~575 PH/s. Bitfarms expects to have the new miners installed and operational within approximately 10 days.

Expansion Highlights:

  • 87% increase to computational capacity in the third quarter of 2019;
  • 173% increase to computational capacity year-to-date;
  • Aggregate installed capacity growing to ~44.9 megawatts; and
  • Overall operational efficiency improving to ~12.8 petahash per megawatt, making Bitfarms one of the most efficient publicly traded Canadian cryptocurrency miners in terms of computing power relative to electricity consumption.

While we complete the infrastructure development at Phase 2 of our new Sherbrooke computing centre over the coming weeks, these miners will be temporarily installed in our Magog computing facility in order to benefit immediately from the additional cashflow”, highlighted Wes Fulford, Chief Executive Officer. “We will be updating the market over the coming weeks regarding subsequent hardware deliveries and Phase 2 development status.”
