Company tops 4.16 EH/s, up 21% from August 2022; mines 448 bitcoin for the month, a 132% YoY increase; HODL grows 13% to 594 bitcoins
LAS VEGAS, Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK) (the "Company" or "CleanSpark"), America’s Bitcoin Miner™, today released its unaudited bitcoin mining and operations update for the calendar year-to-date ending September 30, 2022.
“We experienced impressive growth this month, increasing our hashrate by 21% in a single month. Our successes are the direct result of our extraordinary teams who are working to ensure CleanSpark maintains its coveted position in the top five of publicly traded mining companies in North America. In fact, by many measures, including monthly bitcoin production, we are firmly in the top three and we intend to stay there as we build our way out of current market conditions,” said Zach Bradford, Chief Executive Officer.
“Our bitcoin balance has increased by 13% month-over-month, making it one of the largest monthly increases in our HODL since we started releasing monthly mining updates. While we continue our strategy of deploying bitcoin to fund our growth and operations, the fact that our bitcoin treasury is increasing is testament to our growth strategy. The growth in our HODL balance is a direct reflection of our free cash flow resulting from our recent acquisitions, low operating costs and minimal debt service,” said Gary A. Vecchiarelli, Chief Financial Officer.
