“In early April, we surpassed our 3 exahash per second goal (EH/s) with the start of production at our Leger farm, our ninth operating facility. This momentum continued throughout the month, with new miner installations driving our hashrate to over 3.3 EH/s at month-end, up 22% from 2.7 EH/s at the end of March said Emiliano Grodzki, CEO of Bitfarms. “This incremental capacity helped drive our average daily production in April to 13.5 BTC/day, up 15% from 11.7 BTC/day in March, and I’m proud to say we exited April running at over 14 BTC/day.”
“We continue to be on track to complete the build out of Leger in May, as well as the second phase of construction at The Bunker in June. These activities are intended to bring on incremental capacity of 32 MW and, in conjunction with ongoing miner installations, are expected to add approximately 640 petahash per second (PH/s) to our online hashrate,” added Grodzki.
