26.6 EH/s and 1.2 GW under management

Salt Creek site fully energized and Cedarvale site partially energized

MIAMI, May 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hut 8 Corp. (Nasdaq | TSX: HUT) (“Hut 8” or the “Company”), a leading, vertically integrated operator of large-scale energy infrastructure and one of North America’s largest Bitcoin miners, today released its operations update for April 2024.

“Amidst the backdrop of the halving, the operational capabilities of our team enabled us to maximize deployed hashrate as we completed the relocation of our fleet from hosted to owned facilities and brought new capacity online,” said Asher Genoot, CEO of Hut 8. “At Salt Creek, we energized 63 megawatts, totaling nearly 18,000 miners, just over three months after breaking ground at the greenfield site, which brings our current self-mining hashrate to 5.5 exahash per second.”

“The miners deployed at Salt Creek were relocated from Kearney and Granbury, with operations of those sites now fully transitioned to the new owner. In eight days, we removed more than 25,000 miners on 440 pallets in 20 loaded 53-foot transports, a testament to our team’s ability to execute complex operational activities efficiently to minimize downtime in our fleet,” said Genoot.

“We also partially energized Cedarvale, a 215 megawatt site in Ward County, Texas, on behalf of our partner Ionic Digital. Our Managed Services business continues to serve as a key driver of growth and profitability for Hut 8 as we navigate post-halving market conditions and execute on our restructuring plan.”


  • 63 MW brought online at Salt Creek on schedule, with all-in cost expected to total less than $275,000 per megawatt pending completion of the project.
  • Partially energized Ionic Digital’s 215 MW Cedarvale site, with thousands of miners currently hashing and construction ongoing.
  • Fulfilled transition-related responsibilities at Kearney and Granbury and are now entitled to receive an early termination fee of $13.5 million.
