“We are now operating over 170,000 high-performance ASICs servers in 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, Core Scientific Chief Executive Officer. “Our scale and balance sheet provide the flexibility to continue to invest in our growth and pursue opportunities that may arise from the recent market and industry dislocation.”
Core Scientific continued to develop and expand its operations in Texas and Oklahoma, while data centers owned and operated by the Company in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina and North Dakota continued to operate as expected. As of month-end, 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, averaging 36.7 bitcoins per day, a decrease from April’s daily average of 37.4. The decrease in average daily bitcoin production resulted primarily from Bitcoin network difficulty increases on April 27 and May 10 totaling approximately 10 percent, in addition to multiple curtailments in response to local grid operations. As of May 31, 2022, the Company held 8,058 bitcoins produced from operations.
As of May month end, Core Scientific operated its own fleet of more than 90,000 ASICs servers, producing 9.2 EH/s.
In addition to its self-mining fleet, as of May 31, 2022, Core Scientific provided data center colocation services, technology and operating support for a growing, diverse group of customers representing 7.9 EH/s and more than 80,000 ASICs servers.
In the month of May, the Company powered-down a portion of its data center operations in Texas on 13 occasions for a total of 1,218 megawatt hours. Core Scientific will continue to work with the communities and utility companies in which it operates to enable and ensure electrical grid stability.
