Argo Blockchain PLC announces operations update in May


LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / June 7, 2023 / Argo Blockchain plc, a global leader in cryptocurrency mining (LSE:ARB; NASDAQ:ARBK), is pleased to provide the following operational update for May 2023.

During the month of May, Argo mined 173 Bitcoins or Bitcoin equivalents (collectively “BTC”), or 5.6 BTC per day. This is a 16% increase compared to the 4.8 BTC mined per day in April 2023. The increase in BTC production was driven by increased uptime and operational efficiency across the company’s mining fleet, as well as an increase in transaction fees on Bitcoin- the network.

Mining revenue in May amounted to $4.75 million, an increase of 14% compared to the previous month (April 2023: $4.17 million).

As of May 31, 2023, the company held 50 BTC, which is down from 83 BTC held at the end of April. During the month of May, the company sold certain digital assets and plans to use the proceeds to pay down debt.

The company’s total hash rate capacity is still 2.5 EH/s. The company expects to add new BlockMiner machines at its Quebec facilities later this year, which is expected to increase the company’s total hashrate capacity by 12% to approximately 2.8 EH/s.

Seif El-Bakly, Argo’s interim CEO, said: “I am delighted with the significant increase in the company’s BTC production during the month of May. This is a testament to the hard work of our mining team to optimize performance across the fleet spring. . In the long term, I believe increased Bitcoin network activity has the potential to drive demand for blockspace and increase miner fees.”
