Bitfarms Announces March 2024 Production and Operations Update

- Company earns 286 BTC in March 2024 -

- Upgrade and expansion plan, targeting 21 EH/s and 21w/TH in 2024, underway with T21 deliveries and installations -

TORONTO, Ontario and BROSSARD, Québec, April 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bitfarms Ltd. (NASDAQ/ TSX: BITF), a global vertically integrated Bitcoin mining company, provides its monthly production report and update on its fleet upgrade and expansion.

Fleet Upgrade Review

Geoff Morphy, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “In March, we exercised our previously announced purchase option for 28,000 Bitmain T21 miners and purchased an additional 19,280 Bitmain T21 miners along with 3,888 Bitmain S21 miners and 740 Bitmain S21 hydro miners.

“Having confirmed the tremendous performance of our T21 miners currently running, and with Bitcoin prices reaching all-time highs, we acted quickly to secure these miners at attractive prices in advance of anticipated hardware price increases. Together, with our 35,888 Bitmain T21 purchases and farm expansions announced in November, these new 87,796 miners are sufficient to reach 21 EH/s by year-end, with greater operating efficiency.

“These orders solidify our expansion plan for 2024 and provide the pathway to operating one of the newest and potentially most efficient mining fleets in the industry. Securing these miners is a key part of our strategy to drive rapid and meaningful improvements across three principal operating metrics of hashrate, energy efficiency and operating costs per terahash as we plan to capture greater upside from rising Bitcoin prices and expanding mining margins,” added Morphy.

Ben Gagnon, Chief Mining Officer, said, “In March, we received 1,650 T21 miners with 6,400 additional miners in transit. The majority of the miners received are installed and online. Garlock installations are now planned for completion in the first week of April. With curtailment in Quebec and Paraguay, as well as power plant maintenance in Argentina, we had fewer miners online than normal, resulting in a month-end hashrate of 6.5 EH/s. We expect to achieve 7 EH/s by mid-April.

“As we enter the Halving, we remain focused on our 2024 transformational fleet upgrade and expansion plan which triples our hashrate to 21 EH/s, increases our targeted operating capacity by 83% to 440 MW, and improves our fleet efficiency by 38% to 21 w/TH. This marks the largest growth in the Company’s history and propels us toward becoming one of the industry leaders in energy efficiency. Bitfarms is well positioned, with a strong balance sheet, to execute on our growth plans and capitalize on opportunities in the upcoming bull market and beyond.”

Mining Review

March mining operations generated 286 BTC compared to 300 BTC in February. This reflects participation in grid-stabilizing curtailment programs, power plant maintenance in Argentina, downtime associated with facility upgrades resulting in temporary lower average operating EH/s, and a 4.8% increase in network difficulty.
