Stronghold Digital Mining Invests in 2,000 Avalon A1346 Bitcoin Miners

While 2022 was not a particularly notable year for bitcoin mining ventures, 2023 has witnessed a significant upsurge in expansion activities. New sites have been set up, and several bitcoin miners have been bought by various companies for growth purposes. Nasdaq-listed Stronghold Digital Mining (SDIG) disclosed on Thursday its acquisition of 2,000 Avalon A1346 bitcoin miners manufactured by Canaan.

Each Canaan mining rig is expected to generate around 110 terahash per second (TH/s), consuming 3,300 watts of power. A single Avalon A1346 offers an efficiency rate of approximately 30 joules per terahash. Stronghold confirmed that the new $3 million equipment will be transported to the Panther Creek site during the third quarter of the year.

Greg Beard, the Chairman and CEO of Stronghold expressed his excitement, “We are thrilled to bolster our partnership with Canaan via the purchase of the A1346 miners, their top-performing bitcoin miners. These miners rank highly within our air-cooled Strongbox units and offer a compelling value proposition considering the mix of high hashrate, energy efficiency, and cost.”

This acquisition by Stronghold comes after it announced a collaboration with Canaan subsidiary, Cantaloupe Digital LLC, in May. The company signed a two-year hosting contract then, which has since been revised and expanded. Despite a minor 1.36% decline in Stronghold’s shares on Thursday, data from the past 30 days shows SDIG shares surging by 136% against the U.S. dollar.

interesting… always thought mining was on its way out. But i suppose with enough cash and cheap power, anything’s possible.

cant believe 2022 wasn’t great for mining, with the price skyrocketing you’d think everyone would be on it. guess 2023 is a different story, lol.
