Mawson Infrastructure Group, an Australian Bitcoin miner, announced on Friday that it signed a 12 megawatt (MW) hosting co-location deal with the U.S. crypto mining services provider Foundry Digital.
The deal will bring Mawson’s crypto mining hosting co-location business to a total of 114 MW, an increase of 5,600% from 2 MW on December 31, 2021. Mawson expects the first mining hardware under the deal to be deployed by the end of Q1, 2022. The miner plans to deploy the mining hardware within its own proprietary Modular Data Centre (MDC) technology at its facilities in the US.
The new signing comes only two days after Mawson signed a 100 MW crypto-mining hosting agreement with Celsius Mining, a subsidiary of crypto lending firm Celsius Networks. Last Tuesday, Mawson signed its largest co-location customer for 100 MW with Celsius Mining.
James Manning, CEO and founder of Mawson, talked about the latest development and said: “in FY2021, we generated (unaudited) $850,000 in revenue from our 2 MW of hosting customers – the agreements we have signed this week take us to 114 MW in our hosting business in total. Our hosting business is expanding rapidly and total contracts signed to date makes us one of the largest Nasdaq listed Bitcoin mining ASIC hosting companies.”
