While bitcoin is down more than 72% from the crypto asset’s all-time high, bitcoin mining operations are expanding at a rapid pace during the downturn. Cleanspark, a bitcoin mining firm, announced Tuesday that its hashrate had surpassed four exahash per seconds (EH/s) and Rhodium, a Texas-based mining company, revealed that it has raised $11.9million according to an September 19 Securities and Exchange Commission Form D filing. Rhodium announced on September 29 a merger agreement with Silversun Technologies. Merkle Standard opened Spartanburg’s new mine facility two days earlier.
