SALT LAKE CITY, May 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK)("CleanSpark" or "the Company"), a diversified energy services and Bitcoin mining company, focused on solving modern energy challenges, today announced the purchase of 2,400 additional S19-Pro rigs for delivery in the coming month to increase the overall hashrate efficiency of its mining fleet. The replacement of older-generation equipment is a strategic step in the Company’s efforts to maximize energy efficiency in conjunction with its ESG focused approach to Bitcoin mining.
The new miners will be deployed immediately upon arrival at the Company’s Bitcoin mining facilities outside of Atlanta, Georgia. These new units are expected to be delivered during the first week of June 2021. Additionally, the Company has entered into an agreement to sell a portion of the replaced, prior generation rigs which consume more power and produce a much lower hashrate. CleanSpark anticipates that the exchange will decrease overall energy consumption approximately 1 MW while increasing corresponding production efficiency of the replaced equipment by over 37.5%.
CleanSpark Further Increases Efficiency at 95% Carbon-Free Bitcoin Mining Facility.
The Company also expects to recognize a significant profit on the sale of the displaced units, most of which were purchased as part of the acquisition of ATL Data Center, LLC in December of 2020. 
CleanSpark’s Chief Executive Officer Zach Bradford stated, "This is an additional step in making our mining operation more efficient, which further aligns with our previously stated objective of operating all company-owned facilities at or near carbon neutral. We have publicly disclosed our current energy mix of 95% carbon-free power, at a fixed price of $0.0285 kWh. In the current climate, being sufficiently capitalized to secure and quickly install this additional order of highly sought after S19 Pro 110 TH/s units is a significant accomplishment. The 1 MW that will be made available as a result of the increased efficiency will now be used to power additional S19 units slated for arrival over the coming months. Additionally, because of the market and global increase in bitcoin prices and demand for rigs, we are able to sell our prior-generation, less-efficient models at substantial gains. This transition to the upgraded equipment is expected to increase our hash rate capacity to over 400 PH/s while using the same amount of power that we previously used to generate 330 PH/s. At current difficulty rates this improvement will increase our daily production by an estimated half of a bitcoin per day."

Intel, Block Supporting Mining a Positive for Bitcoin’s Price: Analyst – CoinDesk

Large tech companies such as Intel and Block (previously Square) delving into making mining more efficient and accessible is likely to help the price of bitcoin by encouraging mass adoption, said an analyst for U.K-based digital asset broker GlobalBlock.
Intel, one of the world’s largest chip makers, said on Jan. 18 it will unveil an “ultra low-voltage bitcoin mining ASIC” which will be a more efficient specialized mining computer, competing with current miners that are in the market. “The fact that a $200+ billion tech firm is providing solutions for Bitcoin mining is more confirmation of big players entering the crypto space,” said GlobalBlock’s analyst Marcus Sotiriou.
The chipmaker said its new miner will reduce power consumption by about 15%, Sotiriou said, adding that such an increase in efficiency will help more institutional investors to enter the sector as ESG (environmental, social and governance) is one of their key investment priorities. If such a scenario plays out, it will likely help support bitcoin’s price.

Crypto miner Griid Infrastructure, which is going public via a merger with special purpose acquisition company Adit EdTech Acquisition Corp., has already signed a supply agreement with Intel to potentially buy the chip maker’s new ASIC miners, according to a filing.
Meanwhile, payments giant Block said on Jan. 13 that it’s going ahead with its plan to build an open-source bitcoin mining system to make “mining more distributed and efficient.” If this feature is integrated with Cash App, it might increase the use of bitcoin to pay for goods and services by its users, furthering bitcoin adoption by the masses, Sotiriou noted.
“If successful, this will dramatically increase bitcoin’s use case as a means of exchange, rather than just a store of value – this would result in significantly more adoption and hence help bitcoin reach price figures of over $100,000,” he said.
Bitcoin is now trading near $42,000 since reaching its all-time high of just under $69,000 in November. The stocks of some miners, which are highly leveraged to the price of the crypto currency they mine, have tumbled more than 50% since their peak.

Dogecoin’s value increased by 5,859% over the past 12 months
Dogecoin rose to $0.20 – a 15% increase in value – after billionaire Elon Musk announced Tesla would accept the cryptocurrency for purchasing merchandise.
The cryptocoin with the shiba inu dog meme originally started as a joke, but Musk’s various tweets about it have helped Dogecoin increase by 5,859% over the past 12 months, according to Coinbase. Tesla’s website started accepting Dogecoin soon after, with items such as an electric quad bike for kids priced at 12,020 doge ($2,368), the “Giga Texas Belt Buckle” for 835 doge ($156), and a whistle for 300 doge ($57).
This is just one of many tweets by Musk regarding Dogecoin, the first one coming December 20, 2020 when he tweeted, “One Word: Doge.” Shortly after his tweet, the value of Dogecoin rose by 20%.
Musk followed that post with a barrage of Dogecoin-related tweets in February 2021, including, “Dogecoin is the people’s crypto,” and “no highs, no lows, only Doge”. After these tweets, Dogecoin’s value soared by roughly 40%.
After a full year of showing support for Dogecoin, on December 14 Musk said Tesla would accept the cryptocoin to pay for merch. Dogecoin spiked more than 20% after his tweet.
