SYDNEY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mawson Infrastructure Group Inc. (OTCQB:MIGI) (“Mawson”), a digital infrastructure provider with diversified operations across bitcoin mining and digital asset management, announces it has taken delivery of 250 Bitmain Antminer S19 Pro’s, expects a further 570 Avalon A1246 miners from Canaan (NASDAQ:CAN) to be delivered and operational before the end of July, and expects an additional 588 Avalon A1246 miners to be delivered in early August, adding a further ~125 PH to its existing operations.
The Antminer S19 Pro, one of Bitmain’s latest generation models, is a SHA256 mining rig, which produces a stable hash rate of 110TH/s with a power efficiency of 29.5J/TH, making it one of the most efficient ASIC miners on the market today.
Combined with low power costs at our flagship Georgia, USA site of less than 4c/kwh, Mawson anticipates our go forward break-even cost per Bitcoin to be below US$4,000, and our gross margins to be greater than 80% based on the current Bitcoin price and network difficulty.
The Georgia, USA site generates its power from over 80% renewable/non-carbon emitting sources, in-line with Mawson’s Net Zero 2030 strategy, further details of which can be found on our Sustainability page at www.mawsoninc.com/sustainability.
James Manning, CEO and Founder of Mawson, said, "Our major hardware deployment continues at pace, and we are delighted at the service and consistent delivery from Canaan. Our strong relationships with major ASIC mining hardware manufacturers give us confidence in reaching our corporate goal of 2,000 PH by end 2021, and 5,000 PH by end 2022. This remains subject to extending the size of our Georgia, USA site, and we are in advanced negotiations with the City of Sandersville to expand the site by up to 300MW, which is in addition to the current capacity of 100MW. We look forward to updating shareholders on this front in due course.”
