Bitdeer Announces June 2023 Operations Updates

SINGAPORE, July 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bitdeer Technologies Group (NASDAQ: BTDR) (“Bitdeer” or the “Company”), a world-leading technology company for the cryptocurrency mining community, today announced its unaudited mining and operations updates for June 2023.

Linghui Kong, Chief Executive Officer of Bitdeer, commented, “During June, we pushed ahead with our efforts to augment and develop our business. Our 100MW Gedu mining datacenter in Bhutan is almost complete and is expected to be delivered in July. We also made significant progress towards expanding our infrastructure by initiating construction of a 175MW immersion cooling datacenter at our Tydal mining facility in Norway, which is expected to be completed in 2025. Meanwhile, our aggregate electricity capacity remained steady at 795MW and we increased our total managing hash rate to 18.8 EH/s.”

“We also unveiled a share repurchase program of up to US$1,000,000, which reflects our commitment to creating additional shareholder value. At the same time, we continued to invest in the future with the strategic procurement of intellectual properties including the patents, domain names, and trademarks of Minerbase, a container product for providing infrastructure solutions and software technology services. Looking ahead, I remain confident that our strong foundations and ongoing initiatives will drive sustainable long-term business growth,” Mr. Kong added.

The Company primarily operates three distinct business lines:

  • Self-mining refers to cryptocurrency mining for the Company’s own account, which allows it to directly capture the high appreciation potential of cryptocurrency.
  • Hash Rate Sharing currently primarily includes Cloud Hash Rate, in which the Company offers hash rate subscription plans and shares mining income with customers under certain arrangements.
  • Hosting encompasses a one-stop mining machine hosting solution including deployment, maintenance, and management services for efficient cryptocurrency mining.
