Bitcoin mining with renewable energy
In its statement, Bitfarms highlights that it has a diversified production platform with five industrial-scale facilities, located in Quebec. Each facility is powered by almost 100% environmentally friendly energy.
As reported by CriptoNoticias Bitfarms mined 1,000 bitcoins with hydropower so far this year. In addition, the firm has produced about 1% of the bitcoins in circulation, managing to extract about 8 BTC per day at a mining cost close to USD 9,500 each.
On the other hand, Bitfarms was one of the first cryptocurrency miners to start trading on Canada’s TSX Venture Exchange in July 2019. Then, in February of this year, it was ranked in the list of the five rising companies. Bitfarm shares catapulted more than 1.033 percent in the last year on the TSXV, while gaining more than 111 percent this year.
However, prior to its debut on the Nasdaq, Bitfarms shares trading on the TSXV fell about 2% to close to 5.28 Canadian dollars on Friday, June 18.
