CleanSpark Releases February 2024 Bitcoin Mining Update

March 1, 2024

Hashrate grows 60% in a single month to exceed 16 EH/s with over 131,000 operational miners

Monthly bitcoin production increased 12%; Treasury increased to 4,218 bitcoin

LAS VEGAS, March 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanSpark Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK), America's Bitcoin Miner™, today released its unaudited bitcoin mining and operations update for the month ending February 29, 2024.

"What a month this has been for us. Our teams have been hard at work and that work is paying off," said Zach Bradford, CEO. "Even though it was the shortest month of the year, we've dramatically increased our hashrate—growing 60% in the space of a few weeks. The result of that effort is that we have meaningfully outpaced global hashrate growth and are already seeing those gains in our monthly production. We mined almost 650 bitcoin this month and added most of it to our treasury, which now sits at almost $260 million when denominated in USD. All the while our fleet has grown even more efficient as we prepare for the halving and the positive impact of the supply shock as bitcoin works just as it was intended to. We expect to see additional gains in both hashrate and fleet energy efficiency in March as we rotate in additional new S21s and as our newly acquired facilities become 100 percent operational."
