Since Dec. 30, 2022, Bit Digital (NASDAQ: BTBT)s stock price has risen over 500% (from low to high), a spectacular gain reminiscent of cryptos Golden Age. The team behind the sustainable Bitcoin mining operation has been working behind the scenes to improve the companys operations, leading to multiple recent key partnerships, expansions and revenue diversification.
On May 9th, Bit Digital partnered with Coinmint and Blockbreakers to secure an additional 10 megawatts (MW) and 4 MW of mining capacity respectively. The partnership with Coinmint features a one-year term with automatic three-month renewals and will fill a New York facility with 3,600 S19 mining units running on 99% renewable energy. Bit Digitals agreement with Blockbreakers will expand its mining fleet by 1,230 S19j mining units and cement its expansion into Canada. Like the units with Coinmint, the Blockbreaker fleet will run primarily on sustainable energy sources (specifically, hydroelectric).
Continuing its expansion, Bit Digital partnered with GreenBlocks EHF to secure 8.25 MW of incremental hosting capacity at a facility in Iceland. Under the agreement, 2,000 S19j Pro+ and 500 S19 mining units will be added to the facility. Greenblocks reportedly operates in Icelands closed power grid, which runs on 100% renewable energy, making the expansion a sustainable operation.
