Nasdaq-listed bitcoin mining company Bit Digital (BTBT) announced the completion of an all-stock purchase of 17,996 new ASIC miners, all Antminer or Whatsminer machines, for $13.9 million, a deal first announced in early November.

  • Bit Digital’s utility costs will fall and its profit margins increased after the machines are fully online, according to Erke Huang, the company’s chief financial officer.
  • BTBT issued 4,344,603 BTBT shares at $3.20 each to pay for the machines.
  • Shares of Bit Digital have soared more than 1,800% year to date, trading around $6.42 at last check, more than double the price of the shares used to pay for the new mining machines.
