August 17, 2020 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Blockchain Stock News Bites: Marathon Patent Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA) (“Marathon” or “Company”), a Nasdaq-listed cryptocurrency mining company, today announced that it has entered into a Long Term Purchase Contract with Bitmain for the purchase of 10,500 next generation Antminer S-19 Pro ASIC Miners.
Marathon’s Chief Executive Officer, Merrick Okamoto, stated, “The execution of this contract with Bitmain represents a milestone event for our company. This investment is expected to result in Marathon being one of, if not the largest, Bitcoin miner in North America.”
Okamoto continued, “Today’s news comes on the heels of recent incremental business growth through the purchase of what now is expected to total 13,520 next generation miners generating 1.55 Exahash upon full installation. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bitmain for working with us on this Long Term Purchase Contract, which locks in the purchase price, a substantial discount from the current retail price, and greatly reduces the risk of price increases to the Company and potential shortage of Miner availability in the future.”
“We are pleased to have provided Marathon with Bitmain’s latest generation of Antminer S19 Pro mining hardware. Equipped with the most advanced chipset currently available, the high-performance and low power consumption of the miners will significantly improve operations of Marathon’s mining business. This collaboration continues to strengthen our cooperation and will extend to future work together as Marathon expands its presence in the mining industry,” said Irene Gao, Antminer Sales Director of NCSA Region, Bitmain.
Additionally, 1,360 Miners were delivered to our Hosting Facility today, and the Company anticipates that all of these Miners will be deployed this weekend and added to our current 700 Miners presently in operation, bringing our currently installed Miners to 2,060 which will produce 184.6 PH/s. Bitmain will also deliver 500 previously purchased S-19 Pro Miners in September and 500 in November. After the installations this weekend go operational next week, the Company’s yields are expected to generate prospective positive net cash flow, based on the current price of Bitcoin and Hashrate difficulty.
