Canadian Bitcoin Mining Firm Hut 8 Sees Record High Revenue in Q3 2018

17:15 Thursday , November 08th 2018
Canadian Bitcoin (BTC) mining company Hut 8 has reported record revenue in the third quarter (Q3) of 2018, according to the company's quarterly financial report published Nov. 8.

Hut 8, which claims to be "the largest" public crypto mining company by operating capacity and market capitalization, has revealed its financial results for Q3 of this year, stating that its revenue reached a record high $13.5 million for Q3, and $27.7 million for the nine months ending on Sep. 30. Revenue increased by 126 percent compared to the previous quarter revenue of $5.9 million. Hut 8 attributed the increase to its deployment of 16 Bitfury BlockBoxes in September at its mining facility in the City of Medicine Hat, for an aggregate of 56 BlockBoxes at that site. Each BlockBox contains 176 mining servers and reportedly has a hashrate of 13.7 Pethashes per second (Ph/s).
