Genesis Digital Assets has purchased 20,000 bitcoin mining machines from China-based manufacturer Canaan. The price wasn’t disclosed.

  • The bitcoin mining company also has the option to buy an additional 180,000 mining machines from Canaan, the companies announced Tuesday.
  • Abdumalik Mirakhmedov, co-founder and executive chairman of Genesis Digital Assets, said that the machines from this order were part of “ongoing efforts to rapidly scale bitcoin mining operations in North America and the Nordics,” where the company is focusing on renewable energy sources.
  • In June, Genesis Digital Assets purchased 10,000 A1246/A1166Pro mining machines from Canaan, and last month, the company raised $125 million in equity to help fund its North American and Nordic expansion plans.
  • Mirakhmedov added that the latest purchase would “dramatically increase our capacity as we work towards our goal to increase our capacity to 1.4 gigawatts by the end of 2023.”
