Blockstream reveals huge Bitcoin mining facilities with Fidelity as customer

posted 2 months ago
Blockchain technology company Blockstream revealed details related to their massive Bitcoin mining data centers in Quebec, Canada and Adel, Georgia. The facilities account for a combined 300 megawatts worth of energy capacity, and they’re currently available for hosting enterprise-level mining activities, in addition to Blockstream’s own mining operations.

2 of their active customers include Fidelity Center for Applied Technology and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman. The mining facilities would account for roughly 6 exahashes of Bitcoin mining power if used at full capacity with the latest ASIC mining hardware. This would have equated to 10% of Bitcoin’s total network hashrate less than a month ago.
