Mauro Ferrara, Bitfarms’ interim CFO, commented,

“As anticipated, the May 2020 Bitcoin halving event negatively impacted some of our key financial metrics for both the quarter and full year results. However, significant improvements in Bitcoin mining economics provided a healthy boost to our fourth quarter results. Operationally, we added three thousand miners in the quarter, increasing mining computing power to approximately 965 PH/s as of the end of 2020.”

Emiliano Grodzki, Bitfarms’ CEO, added,

“With the addition of 218 PH/s to our mining pool and the increase in Bitcoin price in the fourth quarter of 2020, we ended the year on a very positive note, providing us great momentum going forward.

Thus far in 2021, we have raised C$80 million in equity, repaid our term debt in full, added miners to our pool to reach 1.2 PH/s in computing power and placed orders for 48,000 miners for delivery in 2022 with our supplier of choice, MicroBT.

With Bitcoin prices recently surpassing US$60,000 and with over 500 Bitcoins in inventory by the end of the quarter, our financial position has never been stronger, and we are very excited about our prospects for the future.”

Bitfarms is one of the largest, oldest and most cost-effective public Bitcoin mining operations in the world. It has a diversified production platform with five industrial-scale facilities in Quebec.

Bitfarms (BITF) is down 8.02 per cent and is currently trading at C$6.31 per share as of 3:01 pm ET.
