“Despite challenges earlier in the year, we doubled our hash rate to 7.0 exahashes per second year-over-year, with a majority of it now located at the King Mountain wind farm in West Texas. We finished the year with one of our most productive quarters to date, producing 1,562 bitcoin in the fourth quarter,” said Fred Thiel, Marathon’s Chairman and CEO.

“As we enter 2023, we remain confident in our ability to scale Marathon into one of the largest and most energy-efficient Bitcoin mining operations globally. We have thousands of miners ready to be energized over the coming months, which we expect to more than triple our current production capacity to approximately 23 exahashes by mid-year,” Marathon added in its PR.
