At the end of August, the mining company Greenidge Generation mined ~301 BTC. The total figure since the beginning of 2022 was 1771 BTC, according to a press release.
On the 31st, the company’s fleet consisted of about 24,500 miners with a total hash rate of ~2.4 EH/s.
According to the statement, Greenidge Generation has taken offline about 5,000 older and less efficient devices (0.3 EH/s).
“Uptime [на предприятии в Дрездене, штат Нью-Йорк] amounted to 100% in August and 99.9% in eight months,” the company added.
The company’s mining data center is located on a hybrid power plant owned by it. The work of this facility caused complaints from local activists and environmentalists, confident in its negative impact on the environment.
In 2022, the New York Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit by environmentalists against Greenidge.
However, in early June, environmentalists and a member of the Assembly of New York, Anna Kelles, called on the governor of the state, Katie Hocool, to revoke the mining permit from the company.
Kelles initiated a bill introducing a two-year moratorium on cryptocurrency mining using electricity generated from carbon sources.
At the end of April, the document was supported in the lower house of the State Legislative Assembly, and on June 3 – in the Senate. The bill is on the governor’s signature.
Recall, against the background of the loss of $ 107.9 million received for the second quarter, Greenidge Generation revised plans for expansion into Texas.
