Core Scientific (CORZ), North America’s largest publicly traded bitcoin miner by hash rate, expects to maintain its dominance by reaching a hashrate of 40 EH/s-42 EH/s before the end of the year.
The hashrate will be split almost evenly between the company’s self-mining and hosting divisions, according to a statement released on Monday. Core Scientific’s construction and power teams are on track to complete 1.2-1.3 gigawatts of operational infrastructure by the end of the year, according to the company.
The company also released preliminary sales estimates for 2021 of $515 million to $545 million, compared to a consensus analyst estimate of $469.9 million by FactSet. Preliminary adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation (EBITDA) ranged between $225 to $235 million, compared to an analyst average of $205.5 million.
On Monday, the miner’s stock was up 3.6 percent, while bitcoin was nearly flat over the previous 24 hours and peer Marathon Digital was down about 1.7 percent. Marathon indicated in December that by early 2023, it intends to have increased its hashrate to around 23.3 EH/s.
Let us see whether Core Scientific will succeed in increasing the Hashrate or not.
