Bitcoin miner CleanSpark buys another batch of mining machines

CleanSpark (CLSK) said in a Tuesday morning press release that it has added nearly 3,900 Bitmain Antminer S19j Pro miners to its mining fleet, paying $5.9 million, or about $15.50 per terahash.

While some other miners have been in survival mode during the cryptocurrency bear market — dealing not only with falling prices, but also with rising energy costs — CleanSpark has been buying assets at seemingly cheap prices. The acquisition brings the number of bitcoin mining equipment the company has acquired in recent months to more than 26,500.

According to mining services firm Luxor Technologies, the $5.9 million purchase price equates to about $15.50 per terahash, a relatively low price as miners of this efficiency currently sell for $24.26 per terahash .

In addition to mining equipment, CleanSpark has recently become a buyer of data mining centers, including two facilities in Georgia, where the company primarily operates.

The company last week raised its guidance for year-end hash rate or computing power by 10%.
