TORONTO, Ontario and BROSSARD, Québec, Dec. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bitfarms Ltd. (NASDAQ: BITF // TSX: BITF), a global Bitcoin self-mining company, provided a Bitcoin (BTC) production and mining operations update for November 2022.

“Our Canadian growth and expansion continue unabated and ahead of schedule, even with the recent turmoil impacting the sector and the price of BTC,” said Geoff Morphy, President and COO of Bitfarms. “In November, we energized an additional 6 megawatts (MW) capacity at our Garlock farm. In December, we expect to complete Garlock and Phase 3 of The Bunker, bringing our total Sherbrooke operations to the full 96 MW capacity. This buildout will mark a major achievement for Bitfarms.”

“In November, we mined 453 BTC, bringing our year-to-date total to 4,672 BTC mined, up 51% from the same period in 2021,” said Ben Gagnon, Chief Mining Officer of Bitfarms. “With new capacity coming online in Sherbrooke, our November hashrate increased 5% to 4.4 exahash/second (EH/s) by mid-month, compared to 4.2 EH/s at the beginning of the month. We averaged 15.1 BTC mined per day for the full month and exited November at a similar rate, down from an average of 15.7 BTC mined per day for the month of October 2022. November production was impacted primarily by increases in network difficulty and a shorter month, which has set four all-time highs in the last six adjustments. Year to date, network difficulty is up 52% while Bitfarms’ hashrate has grown 109%. Our strategy of using low-cost hydro power and highly efficient miners continues to deliver stable electricity rates and consistently low production costs. As such, we believe that Bitfarms is well positioned to benefit from any industry-related curtailment, idling or shutting down of miners that may occur as a result of high fossil-fuel energy source expense.”

Morphy added, “As previously discussed, Argentina’s macroeconomic environment is causing delays in the importation of most goods which is adversely affecting our ability to bring in the additional miners we need to operate the first warehouse at its full capacity of 50 MW. These delays may impact the company’s 5.0 exahash goal for year-end 2022.”
