“Riot mined a total of 418 Bitcoin in February,” said Jason Les, CEO of Riot. “During the month, we also announced a new purchase order with MicroBT for 31,500 miners to be installed at our Rockdale Facility. The installation of these miners will increase our mining efficiency and uptime, and will further expand hash rate capacity at our Rockdale Facility to 15.1 EH/s. Approximately 17,000 of the miners in this order will be used to replace miners that are not performing to our expectations. We expect to see significantly improved operating performance from our self-mining operations at our Rockdale Facility as these new miners are installed and begin operating, which we expect to commence in Q2 and to be completed in Q3 2024.”

Infrastructure Update

Riot is currently developing Phase 1 of the Company’s second large-scale facility, the Corsicana Facility, which is expected to have 400 megawatts (“MW”) of developed mining capacity upon completion of this initial phase. Once fully developed, the Corsicana Facility is expected to have 1 gigawatt (1,000 MWs) in total developed mining capacity.

During the month of February, the structure for the first 100 MW building, Building A1, was completed and onsite teams made progress on the deployment of tanks for the immersion cooling systems within the building. Also, during the month, our teams began pouring the foundation for the second 100 MW building, Building A2, which is expected to be completed subsequent to Building A1.

The 400 MW substation is expected to be energized by the end of March 2024, and the first 100 MW building, Building A1, will commence operations shortly thereafter. The additional buildings comprising the 400 MW Phase 1 buildout of the Corsicana Facility are currently under development, which we expect to be energized and begin hashing in stages over the course of 2024.

Estimated Hash Rate Growth

Estimated Hash Rate Growth    
Riot anticipates achieving a total self-mining hash rate capacity of 31 EH/s by the end of 2024.

As previously disclosed, in June 2023, Riot entered into a long-term master purchase agreement with MicroBT, which included an initial order of 33,280 immersion miners for the Corsicana Facility. Effective December 1, 2023, Riot executed a second order under the MicroBT master agreement for an additional 66,560 immersion miners, primarily for the Corsicana Facility. In February 2024, Riot entered into a third order with MicroBT, for 31,500 air-cooled miners for the Rockdale Facility. Approximately 17,000 miners in the order are expected to replace underperforming machines currently operating in the facility, and the deployment of the remaining 14,500 miners will add additional hash rate capacity to our self-mining operations at the Rockdale Facility.

Collectively, the three purchase orders will add 28 EH/s to Riot’s self-mining capacity. Deployment of these miners intended for the Corsicana Facility is expected to begin in Q1 2024 and estimated to be completed by the second half of 2025. Deployment of the miners intended for the Rockdale Facility is expected to begin in Q2 2024 and be completed in Q3 2024.

Upon full deployment in 2025, Riot anticipates a total self-mining hash rate capacity of 41 EH/s.
