- With approximately 1% of the Bitcoin network, Bitfarms is currently mining and adding approximately 7.8 Bitcoins a day to inventory at a cost of approximately US$9,500 per Bitcoin as of May 27, 2021.

This year Bitfarms is experiencing our fastest rate of growth ever. We expect to more than double our installed hydropower infrastructure in Québec, triple our operational hashrate in 2021 and be trading on both the TSX Venture Exchange and Nasdaq soon,” said Emiliano Grodzki, Bitfarms’ Chief Executive Officer.
