James Manning, CEO and Founder of Mawson, said, “February was another solid month of operational growth for the group – we produced a record 152 Bitcoin – the highest amount of self-mined Bitcoin in the company’s history. Our Sandersville, Georgia facility continues to grow, with 38 Modular Data Centres now deployed, and with our expansion to 230 megawatts approved this facility is going from strength to strength. In Pennsylvania, the team has worked hard to ensure we deliver on time and on budget, and pleasingly we will have our first Modular Data Centre’s energized at this new facility in late March. Lastly, our hosting co-location business continues to accelerate – significant customer wins announced recently, including new 100-megawatt customer Celsius Mining LLC, and new 12-megawatt customer Foundry Digital LLC, allows us to take advantage of our excess energy infrastructure, adding new revenue streams for the group.”
