Bitdeer Announces September 2023 Operations Updates


SINGAPORE, Oct. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bitdeer Technologies Group (NASDAQ: BTDR) (“Bitdeer” or the “Company”), a world-leading technology company for the cryptocurrency mining community, today announced its unaudited mining and operations updates for September 2023.

Linghui Kong, Chief Executive Officer of Bitdeer, commented, “We remained focused on maintaining our operational strength during the month of September, and continued to deliver robust results. The number of Bitcoin mined through our self-mining business increased by 25.8% from the previous month, and almost tripled from the same period of the previous year, to 482 Bitcoins. This increase came as our recently constructed 100MW Gedu mining datacenter in Bhutan maintained stable operations during the full month of September. During September, 217 Bitcoins were mined at the Gedu mining datacenter, which was approximately 45% of our total Bitcoin being mined for the month. Our success in self-mining is a testament to our ability to optimize our operations, and came as our aggregate electrical capacity held steady at 895MW. Meanwhile, we continued to make progress in the construction of a 175MW immersion cooling datacenter at our mining facility in Tydal, Norway, as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance our infrastructure and expand our capacity. As we move into the remainder of the year, we are confident that our emphasis on strategic business development will bolster our results and help us generate long-term value for our shareholders.”

The Company primarily operates three distinct business lines:

  • Self-mining refers to cryptocurrency mining for the Company’s own account, which allows it to directly capture the high appreciation potential of cryptocurrency.
  • Hash Rate Sharing currently primarily includes Cloud Hash Rate, in which the Company offers hash rate subscription plans and shares mining income with customers under certain arrangements.
  • Hosting encompasses a one-stop mining machine hosting solution including deployment, maintenance, and management services for efficient cryptocurrency mining.

5 Bitcoin mined in September 2023 increased by 195.7% compared to September 2022. Bitcoin mined in September 2023 increased by 25.8% compared to August 2023, primarily attributable to the stable operation of the Company’s 100MW Gedu mining datacenter in Bhutan (the “Gedu Datacenter”) through the full month of September. The Company generally does not hold cryptocurrencies obtained through its self-mining business, and promptly converts them into fiat currency. 

Infrastructure Update
The Company has continued to make progress in the construction of a 175MW immersion cooling datacenter at its mining facility in Tydal, Norway (the “Tydal Datacenter”). The expansion of the Tydal Datacenter is expected to be completed in 2025.
