Marathon’s Record Breaking Purchase
Marathon Digital Holdings, a publicly traded bitcoin mining business, announced a “record purchase” of Bitmain ASIC rigs last week, which will cost over $879 million and boost the miner’s fleet by 78,000 units, according to a Tuesday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Marathon revealed last week that it had signed into an agreement with Bitmain to acquire a record number of bitcoin mining rigs. It provided a lot of details about the deal.
More Miners By Early 2023
The company didn’t say how many miners it bought or how much they cost at the time. The information has now been revealed in an SEC filing. The $879,060,000 deal will add around 78,000 new Antminer S19 XP miners to Marathon’s fleet.
Marathon will get 13,000 miners per month from Bitmain between July and December 2022. The firm will pay 35 percent of the deal’s value within two days of contract execution, according to the conditions of the agreement.
Marathon will pay 35 percent of a batch’s pricing at least six months before that batch’s shipment date. The final 30 percent one month before that batch’s shipment date.
