(Nasdaq: BTBT) (“Bit Digital” or the “Company”), a sustainable platform for digital assets and artificial intelligence (“AI”) infrastructure headquartered in New York City, is pleased to announce that it has finalized an agreement for 6 megawatts of incremental hosting capacity to power its miners.

This new agreement brings the Company’s total contracted hosting capacity with Coinmint to approximately 46 MW. The agreement features an initial one-year term with automatic three-month renewals.

Sam Tabar, Bit Digital’s CEO, commented: “We are pleased to further expand our relationship with a top-tier hosting partner in Coinmint. This agreement represents an important step towards achieving our goal of doubling our active mining fleet to approximately 6.0EH/s during 2024. We plan to achieve this growth target at a measured pace that enables opportunistic procurement decisions with the goal of enhancing both our scale and fleet efficiency.”
