Full Year 2020 Highlights
- Bitcoin mining revenue was $21.07 million.
- We earned 1,510.20 bitcoins from our bitcoin mining business; 695.97 bitcoin earned during the fourth quarter.
- Net income from continuing operations was $1.92 million, derived entirely from our bitcoin mining business, compared with net loss of $2.00 million from continuing operations in 2019
- Total assets of $39.89 million, representing an increase of 783.28% compared with that of at the end of 2019.
- We owned 40,865 miners for a total hash of 2,253.5 PH/s, all of which were acquired during 2020.
“2020 was an extraordinary year, as Bit Digital successfully entered and rapidly scaled its bitcoin mining business, and today enjoys one of the highest operating hash rates of any U.S. listed bitcoin mining company at 2,253.5 Petahash” said Erke Huang, Bit Digital’s CFO. “As of December 31, 2020, we owned a total of 40,865 miners, encompassing one of the largest operating fleets of any U.S. publicly listed bitcoin miner.”
“We achieved this growth through our efficient sourcing of miners, and entry into partnerships with valued hosting providers, which secure us access to electricity and facilities at affordable rates. We took advantage of opportunities to migrate miners on a seasonal basis and to opportunistically access lower-cost power, a portion of which comes from renewable sources. We recently commenced the internationalization of our business, deploying miners in the United States, where as of March 26, 2021, we deployed 5,281 miners, with an additional 3,300 newly purchased miners expected to be launched in the U.S. by the end of April 2021. Going forward, we expect a growing portion of our fleet to be in North America.”
“Finally, we completed the disposition of our legacy businesses and booked full impairment against their assets, so that today we operate as a pure-play bitcoin miner.”
As of March 26, 2021, we had a total of 41,226 miners, including 7,025 Antminer S17+, 195 Antminer S17E, 32 Antminer S17Pro, 205 Antminer S19Pro, 800 Antminer T3, 9,110 Antminer T17, 256 Antminer T17+, 2,200 Whatsminer M10, 4,125 Whatsminer M20S,16,917 Whatsminer M21S, 261 Whatsminer M30S and 100 Whatsminer M31S, located in Xinjiang, Sichuan Province and Yunnan Province in China, and in Texas, Nebraska and Georgia in the United States.
