Nasdaq-listed bitcoin mining company Bit Digitalhttps://hashrateindex.com/stocks/btbt (BTBT) announced plans to expand its North American-hosted mining presence through its partnership with Compute North, Core Scientific and Link Global Technologies.

  • To date, the company hosts 2,100 machines with Compute North. The updated partnership will see Bit Digital move an additional 3,000 S17+ machines during Q2, per a press release.
  • Interim CEO Erke Huang said partnerships with Compute North and others will allow his company to "quickly expand U.S. based bitcoin production."

  • The company has also undergone some senior-level leadership changes after removing its former CEO Min Hu and accepting the resignation of board Chairwoman Ping Liu, per CoinDesk's prior reporting.
  • Shares of the mining company have dropped over 45% to around $16.16 at last check, per TradingView data.
