On Wednesday, in a disclosure, Cleanspark, a Bitcoin mining entity, ended up reserving around 4.4 EH/s (exahash per second) of the latest s21 Antminers of Bitmain.
The mining organization detailed that this particular consignment was valued at 61.6 million dollars approximately, translating to 14 dollars for every TH/s (terahash per second).
Cleanspark Augments Mining Capabilities, Snagging 4.4 EH/s Of S21 Antminers From Bitmain:
Cleanspark is a US-based Bitcoin mining organization. On Wednesday, the company divulged details about how it procured 4.4 EH/s of S21 Antminers from Bitmain, a mining equipment industry titan.
Although the specifics were not discussed openly, the very dispatch indicates that the s21 Antminers from Bitmain boasts a crazy efficiency quotient of around 17.5 J/TH.
This suggests that the purchase most likely included the fancy air-cooled models of the s21.
Cleanspark’s acquisition comes right on the heels of another acquisition from Bitmain – we are talking about Iris Energy. Iris Energy secured 1.4 EH/s of S21 hardware from Bitmain for around 19.6 million dollars.
What’s So Special About The Air-Cooled s21 Models?
These air-cooled models of s21 yield around 200 TH/s each. This indicates around 22,000 units for the organization to reach the 4.4 EH/s mark. Plus, the equipment has a cumulative worth of around 61.6 million dollars, according to Cleanspark.
The announcement also underscores that the Bitmain shipments are all set to start from January 2024. On Wednesday, Cleanspark’s CEO Zach Bradford said, “Integrating the S21 into our mining operations is in line with our commitment to using the most efficient mining technology.”
