U.S.-based publicly listed mining firm Riot Blockchain has revealed that its year-to-date Bitcoin production has more than tripled compared to 2020.
According to a Oct. 6 announcement, Riot has mined 2,457 BTC (roughly $135 million) during 2021 so far — a 246% increase compared to the same period of the previous year.
Production for September has more than quadrupled year-over-year, with Riot mining generating 406 Bitcoin last month compared to 91 BTC for September 2020. As of Sept. 30, 2021, Riot was in possession of 3,534 Bitcoin ($194.4 million). The firm says that it mined every Bitcoin it owns.
Riot claims it now boasts a deployed fleet of roughly 25,646 miners representing a total hash rate capacity of 2.6 exahashes per second (EH/s). Riot expects to have deployed an additional 2,000 Bitmain Antminer S19Js by early November, forecasting a total hashing power of 2.8 EH/s once the new units are operational.
