Bitfarms new mining facility in Canada
Bitfarms, a Bitcoin mining startup, has announced the purchase of fresh land and a building in Canada to develop a new bitcoin mining operation. The unit, named “Garlock,” will act as a successor for the de la Pointe complex, supplying 18 MW of electricity for mining operations.
Bitfarms’ total investment in this new location is around $2.25 million and 25,000 shares outstanding purchase warrants, which will allow holders to acquire Bitfarms shares at a predetermined price.
According to Emiliano Grodzki, CEO of Bitfarms, this facility will be able to host 55,000 miners at a very favourable price of energy of 2.2 cents per kilowatt-hour.
The corporation is also spending a lot of money to get the equipment that will power these new sites.
Bitfarms released a new financing deal with Blockfi in February that will provide them with access to up to $32 million in capital to continue acquiring mining equipment. This money will be used to acquire 6,100 Bitmain S19j Pros, one of the company’s newest units.
