James Manning, CEO and Founder of Mawson, said, “March was another month of operational growth for the group – we produced a record 170 Bitcoin – the highest amount of self-mined Bitcoin in the company’s history. Our Sandersville, Georgia facility continues to grow, with 38 Modular Data Centers now deployed and online, and development on our expansion to 230 megawatts will begin later in Q2. Pleasingly, in Pennsylvania we ended the month with 16 megawatts online, a major milestone for the company as we scale up our second major Bitcoin mining facility in the USA. Lastly, turning to our rapidly expanding hosting co-location business – in March and April we expect this new business line to accelerate materially as we deploy for our major customers Celsius Mining LLC and Foundry Digital LLC. The pipeline of demand for our hosting co-location business – which adds a new revenue stream for the group – continues to grow, and we look forward to updating stockholders on this front in due course.”
