Mining infrastructure firm GRIID has secured a $525 million credit facility from the cryptocurrency exchange and wallet provider Blockchain.com.

  • Cincinnati, Ohio-based GRIID said the four-year term credit facility will be used to bring on additional mining capacity, taking advantage of over 1,300 megawatts of available power from existing energy generation partners.
  • In May, Blockchain.com acquired Artificial Intelligence Exchange (AiX) and in March the firm reportedly raised $300 million in Series C funding led by partners of DST Global, Lightspeed Venture Partners and VY Capital in a funding round that valued the company at $5.2 billion.
