It has been revealed that Bitfarms, a Bitcoin mining company that is vertically integrated and works on a global scale, has released its financial report for the month of December 2023. During the course of this month, the company produced 446 BTC, which is a generation that is 13.8% more than the output that was produced in November. This jump was attributed to strong uptime and a significant increase in transaction costs, despite the fact that there was an increase in the number of problems with the network. There was a correlation between the spike and both of these elements.
Throughout the course of the year, Bitfarms amassed a total of 4,928 BTC in its possession. At the end of December, the company’s hashrate had reached 6.5 EH/s, which represents a 44% increase over the previous year’s level. A further point to consider is that the company’s operating capacity was 240 megawatts, with 186 megawatts coming from the production of hydropower.
By selling 444 of the 446 Bitcoins that it had created throughout the month of December, Bitfarms was able to achieve a total income of $18.9 million. This was accomplished by its ability to generate money. Eight hundred and four Bitcoins were added to the company’s treasury, which now has a value of around $34.2 million according to the last estimate. Additionally, Bitfarms boosted the size of its Synthetic HODLTM portfolio by acquiring 100 long-dated Bitcoin call options. This brought the total number of options for the portfolio up to 135, which is a significant increase. By the time the year 2023 drew to an end, Bitfarms had around 84 million dollars in cash and other forms of currency. Additionally, the firm had finished reducing its total outstanding debt to $4 million, which was scheduled to be paid off by February 2024. This was a significant accomplishment for the company.
They are a representation of the strategic strategy that Bitfarms takes to manage its assets and obligations, and their financial outcomes are a reflection of that approach. In order to implement this strategy, it is necessary to strike a balance between selling mined Bitcoin and maintaining a significant number of Bitcoin in its treasury. Additionally, it is necessary to investigate various options techniques. The increase in hashrate and operating capacity demonstrates the growth trajectory of the business. This puts the company in a good position for future expansion and improvements in efficiency, which are both essential to the company’s prosperity.
