Riot held approximately 6,897 BTC – all produced by the company’s self-mining operations – and had a deployed fleet of 72,428 miners with a hash rate capacity of 7.7 exahashes per second (EH/s) as of Nov. 30.
Riot CEO, Jason Les, said:
“Riot again achieved a new record for total hash rate capacity during the month of November, resulting in our highest monthly Bitcoin production figure to date.”
Les added that in order to ensure more predictable results going forward, Riot will be transitioning to another mining pool that offers a more consistent reward mechanism so that the company will fully benefit from its rapidly growing hash rate capacity, as it works towards its goal of reaching 12.5 EH/s in Q1, 2023.
During the first quarter of 2023, Riot Blockchain expects a total self-mining hash rate capacity of 12.5 EH/s, provided it deploys approximately 115,450 Antminer ASICs as planned. This estimate does not include any potential productivity gains from the company’s use of 200 MW of immersion-cooling infrastructure. Most of Riot’s self-mining fleet will consist of the latest generation S19-series miners.
