The Quebec-headquartered firm added it had installed over 10,300 miners, adding more than 900 PH/s, which helped it surpass 3.9 EH/s corporate hashrate. By the end of 2022, Bitfarms plans to raise its mining power to 6.0 EH/s.

As iHodl earlier reported, Bitfarms abandoned its "hodling strategy" due to "extreme volatility in the markets." As part of business reorganization, Bitfarms previously had sold a total of 3,000 BTC for about $62 million and closed on its previously announced $37 million in new equipment financing with NYDIG.
