Hut 8 Buys 11,090 Bitcoin Miners

Hut 8 Mining Corporation has announced a $44 million purchase of 11,090 WhatsMiner MicroBT M30S, M30S+ and M31S bitcoin mining rigs from Hong Kong-based company SuperAcme Technology.

The purchase complements an earlier one of 863 M30S+ and M30S miners, which Hut 8 expects to be delivered and deployed this month. However, the latest batch of machines won’t be delivered until October, with full deployment expected to be completed by December 2021.

Hut 8 plans to employ the almost 12,000 rigs in a 100 megawatt (MW) facility being planned, reportedly being developed in partnership with Validus Power. Additionally, the company expects these miners to amount to a hashing capacity of around 1.081 exahashes per second (EH/s) after full deployment.
