BASIC SCIENTIFIC ANNOUNCEMENTS MAY UPDATE
- Operates over 170,000 owned and co-located ASIC servers in company data centers
- Produces over 1,100 self-mined bitcoins
Core Scientific, Inc. (NASDAQ: CORZ) (“Core Scientific” or “the Company”), a leader in data center and high-performance blockchain software solutions, today announced production and operational updates for May 2022.
“We now operate over 170,000 high-performance ASIC servers across our five data centers and produced 1,138 bitcoins for our own account in May, more than any other public company in North America,” said Mike Levitt, Chief Executive Officer. from Core Scientific. “Our size and balance sheet provide the flexibility to continue to invest in our growth and seize opportunities that may arise from recent market and industry dislocation.”
Core Scientific continued to develop and expand its operations in Texas and Oklahoma, while Company-owned and operated data centers in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina and North Dakota continued to operate as intended. At the end of the month, the Company operated a total of more than 180,000 servers of all types in its data centers.
Core Scientific’s self-mining operations produced 1,138 bitcoins in May, an average of 36.7 bitcoins per day, down from April’s daily average of 37.4. The decrease in average daily bitcoin production is primarily the result of increased bitcoin network difficulties on April 27 and May 10 totaling around 10%, in addition to multiple reductions in response to local network operations. As of May 31, 2022, the Company held 8,058 bitcoins produced from its operations.
At the end of May, Core Scientific operated its own fleet of over 90,000 ASIC servers, producing 9.2 PE/s.
