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
