Self-mined Bitcoin (Q4-2021 to date)
Production hash rate – petahash per second ("PH/s")
During the second half of November 2021, BitNile maintained the same number of installed Bitcoin miners with no additions installed for the period. BitNile’s active miners for the Michigan data center include 1,292 S19j Pro and eight S9 Antminers, generating approximately 129.12 PH/s, an increase from 120.6 PH/s reported in mid-November 2021. For the Indiana location, the active miners consist of 1,600 S9 Antminers, generating approximately 10.23 PH/s, an increase from 7.68 PH/s reported in mid-November 2021. BitNile’s bimonthly updates regarding the number of Bitcoin miners installed and the amount of bitcoin mined are available at www.BitNile.com.
As previously announced, starting in November 2021, BitNile began receiving 300 S19j Pro Antminers per month in accordance with the purchase agreement with Bitmain Technologies Limited ("Bitmain") for the expected installation of an additional 2,700 S19j Pro Antminers from December 2021 through August 2022. Additionally, in November 2021, BitNile entered into contracts with Bitmain to purchase an aggregate of 16,600 Bitcoin miners. The purchase includes both the environmentally friendly S19 XP Antminers that feature a processing power of 140 terahashes per second ("TH/s") with an energy consumption of 3.01 kilowatt-hours ("kWh") and the S19j Pro Antminers that feature a processing power of 100 TH/s with an energy consumption of 2.95 kWh. Based on current delivery schedules, BitNile expects that the 16,600 newly purchased miners will be shipped by Bitmain between March 2022 and September 2022. As a result, BitNile’s mining operations are expected to consist of 20,600 Bitcoin miners, producing approximately 2.24 exahashes per second once all miners are fully deployed and operational. The completion of the purchase of the 16,600 Bitcoin miners is subject to the Company raising the additional capital required, and there can be no assurances that the capital will be raised on the timeline required under the purchase agreements.
Milton "Todd" Ault, III, the Company’s Executive Chairman, stated, "We are pleased to report the number of installed Antminers purchased from Bitmain and look forward to the next tranche of 300 S19j Pro Antminers to be delivered later this month. We are also pleased with the steady progression in bitcoin mining production and revenues to date. We expect increasing contributions from BitNile to our topline revenues and bottom-line results."
On November 22, 2021, the Company announced its plan to split into two public companies by pursuing a spin-off of Ault Alliance to its stockholders. Ault Alliance will continue its focus on the Company’s legacy businesses and more recently initiated operations, including lending and investing in the real estate and distressed asset spaces, among others, defense, and power solutions, including EV charging products. Following the spin-off of Ault Alliance, the Company, through its BitNile subsidiary, will be a pure-play provider of Bitcoin mining and data center operations, pursuing DeFi-related initiatives.
