All miners and other equipment will be provided by Chinese manufacturer Bitmain.
There will be 47,000 S19 Pro + Hyd miners (198TH/s), resulting in a hash rate of 9.3 EH/s.
Much has been said about Texas as a North American Bitcoin (BTC) mining lobby and the facts seem to confirm this hypothesis. The mega self-cooled mining farm project with accommodations for more than 47,000 machines is already coming to fruition in this country, along with two companies associated with the ecosystem, Poolin and Bitmain.
A 600MW bitcoin mining farm is set to be completed by June this year, But it is now working on a first phase of 100 megawatts. If the times are correct, the second is nearing completion, which will provide an additional 100 megawatts, as shown.
This facility promises to expand by 145 acres or more than 500,000 square metres. It is planned that there will be a site for about 47,000 mining equipmentwhich will work inside containers arranged evenly on the floor.
According to the company’s proprietary information, the farm is based in Pyote, Texas, and will operate from three types of power sources: Natural gas, wind and sun.
In this project, first announced in April 2022, Bitmain He will be responsible for providing all the equipment that will be used on the farm. This is one of the most important manufacturers of bitcoin mining equipment.
Meanwhile, Poolin, one of the largest mining pools on the market, Will be responsible for operational aspects at the software level and mining programming.
According to the details provided by Bitmain, the equipment that will be used for the mining activity will be the Antminer S19 Pro + Hyd (198 TH/s), the latest equipment launched earlier this year.
They will be inside the Antspace HK3 hydro-cooling container system, Container facilitates the accommodation of this type of miners This will also be arranged by Bitmain.
At the level of the greats
Considering that 47,000 units of this mining equipment are to be installed on the Poolin farm and Bitmain, A hash rate of 9.3 EH/s . can be calculated, which will be ready to contribute to the Bitcoin network. It’s great, as it will be one of the largest mining facilities in the United States.
This farm, when fully operational, will be similar to Whinstone, Which is one of the most important bitcoin mining farms in North America This is in response to Riot Blockchain.
The capacity of this complex is 750 MW, which is slightly more than that of Poolin and Bitmain. It also generates a significant portion of Riot’s hash, which is 4.7 EH/sas shown on their website.
The farm can also be compared to that of Marathon Digital Holdings, which has a total computing capacity of 3.9 EH/s, according to a management report for the first quarter. And the Hut 8 isn’t far behind, with its farms generating up to 2.54 EH/s.
Although outperformed by these companies, the Poolin farm and Bitmain are still far below those raised by Sphere 3D and Gryphon Digital, two companies I got 60,000 bitcoin minerswhich will generate 26.4 EH/s, or just over 10% of the global hash rate.
In any case, it is a project in which there is already money invested and where it is already working. Heading into June, it remains to be seen if the construction of the farm is finally complete. That will contribute to the security of BitcoinDespite the decline in profitability.
