New York, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — China Xiangtai Food Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: BTOG) (“China Xiangtai ” or the “Company”) (new name Bit Origin Limited pending name registration), an emerging growth company engaged in crypto mining business with a diversified expansion strategy, today announced that it has entered into a hosting agreement (the “Agreement”) with Horizon Mining Ltd (“Horizon”), an American operator of crypto mining site located in Georgia, U.S., on May 1, 2022, to secure its cryptocurrency mining capacity of up to 6.1 megawatt (“MW”). In addition, the Company also announced that its first batch of 868 miners will be deployed in Georgia, U.S. on May 5, 2022.
The site is located in Georgia Center for Innovation & Manufacturing in Macon City, Georgia. The Company expects to have its final inspection and power-up on the site today. The first batch of 868 miners will be deployed simultaneously and expected to operate and mine Bitcoin once finished all required work.
The hosting team will prepare for initiating the mining operations by setting up the miners and performing the final testing. In addition, the next batch of 560 miners will be deployed in the second week of May 2022. Running at full capacity, the total of 1,428 miners, representing a hash power of 132PH/s, are expected to mine 0.56 BTC per day or generate daily revenue of approximately US$22,000 (assuming Bitcoin price remains at US$39,204.10). We expect to see revenue of approximately US$5 million for 2022 from these miners only.
Mr. Lucas Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “We are excited to announce that the operation of cryptocurrency miners marks the new era of the Company and accelerates the Company’s expansion strategy in North America. We expect to deepen the collaboration with Horizon to expand further as we deploy more miners in the near future. We are confident that we will be able to grow significantly and deliver greater value to shareholders.”
