TORONTO, Dec. 2, 2021 /CNW/ - Hut 8 Mining Corp. (Nasdaq: HUT) (TSX: HUT) ("Hut 8" or "the Company"), one of North America's largest, innovation-focused digital asset mining pioneers, supporting open and decentralized systems since 2018, is pleased to provide the following corporate update. All dollar figures are in Canadian Dollars unless otherwise stated.
Mining Production Highlights for November 2021:
- 265 Bitcoin were mined, resulting in an average production rate of 8.83 Bitcoin per day.
- 100% of the self-mined Bitcoin for the month of November were deposited into custody, consistent with Hut 8's Hodl strategy.
- Total Bitcoin balance held in reserve is 5,242 as of November 30, 2021.
Mining Equipment Deployment Update for November 2021:
During November 2021, the Company completed the deployment of high-performance NVIDIA chips at Hut 8's site in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The Company has deployed the NVIDIA CMPs to mine the Ethereum network via Luxor pool, and consistent with its Hodl strategy, is receiving payouts in Bitcoin. Based on current mining economics this equates to approximately 1.8 – 2.0 additional Bitcoin per day. Hut 8 currently has an installed hashrate of approximately 1.7 EH/s, which includes the converted hashrate from its fleet of CMPs.
"Our NVIDIA CMP deployment is contributing revenue of approximately $140,000 per day, based upon current mining economics," said Jason Zaluski, Head of Technology for Hut 8. "Given the low power intensity of these chips, our cost per Bitcoin of approximately $3,000 means we are achieving unit margins in excess of 95%."
