Millions of dollars have been invested in cryptocurrency mining (and specifically Bitcoin (BTC) miner), over the course of this year. Many enterprises have made huge deals for thousands with ASIC device manufacturers, such as Bitmain and Canaan. Some of the largest bitcoin miners have started building new facilities to improve their capacities.
Griid Infrastructure revealed that they have secured $525million credit from Blockchain.com. The financing will be used to increase mining capacity as well as “capitalizing on over 1,300 megawatts of available power from existing energy generation partners.” According to the announcement, Blockchain.com’s Institutional Markets team has crafted some of the largest credit facilities in the market.
“Blockchain.com is an established leader in the digital asset space with unique knowledge into every aspect of the crypto ecosystem, including mining operations,” Trey Kelly, Griid’s CEO and founder explained in a statement. “Blockchain.com is an ideal capital partner as we strengthen our infrastructure and operations across our growing portfolio of bitcoin mining facilities,” the mining company’s CEO added.
Griid is an American crypto mining infrastructure company that calls itself a “vertically-integrated bitcoin self-mining company.” The firm operates a portfolio of bitcoin mining data centers across the United States. Blockchain.com’s CEO Peter Smith explains that the company has worked with Griid for quite some time.
“For the past two years we’ve worked closely with Griid to not just provide capital, but to be a partner invested in the growth of the business,” Smith said during the announcement. Blockchain.com’s deal with Griid follows the company raising $300 million at the end of March, increasing its valuation to $5.2 billion.
In May, the crypto firm acquired an AI company called Artificial Intelligence Exchange and last August, Blockchain.com’s CFO hinted at the company going public in 18 months. Macrina Kil, Blockchain.com CEO explained that the company was holding ETH and BTC in its balance sheets.
