Bit Mining Pledges $25M to Build a Texas Mining Facility With Bitdeer

The Chinese company Bit Mining Limited has been making a number of moves into the cryptocurrency mining industry after the business used to be dedicated to lottery operations. Back in mid-February, Bitcoin.com News reported on Bit Mining when the company was called 500.com and the firm announced it acquired the mining company Btc.com.

In April, the company revealed it had rebranded and Bit Mining Limited (NYSE: BTCM) also said it acquired the mining rig manufacturer Bee Computing. The partnership with Dory Creek, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bitdeer, was announced on May 19.

The company Bit Mining Limited used to be a Chinese lottery company but recently transitioned to a bitcoin mining firm. Bit Mining has acquired Btc.com, Bee Computing, and is now partnering with Bitdeer to construct a Texas mining facility.

The two firms will invest $25.74 million in order to “jointly construct and operate the Texas Mining Center.†The Shenzhen-based company highlights in the announcement that the business operation is focused on “lowering its carbon footprint†and “protecting the environment.â€

“The total power capacity of the Texas Mining Center is 57.2MW, with more than 85% of its power generated by clean and low-carbon energy,†Bit’s Texas Mining Center announcement states. “As the electricity supply is further optimized in Texas, the Texas Mining Center will use higher proportions of electricity generated by clean energy.â€

Bit Mining’s Texas Crypto Mining Center Announcement Focuses on Carbon Neutrality

Bit’s current data centers in Sichuan Province, China “run 100% on clean energy,†the company claims. The new operation in Texas can help the local economy and further “provide local employment opportunities,†Bit Mining says.

The company’s announcement is littered with commentary about carbon neutrality as if it’s taken notice of the recent energy drama sparked by Tesla in recent times. Meanwhile, following the announcement on Wednesday, the following day, BTCM shares jumped over 7% during the last 24 hours.

“Upon completion of the Texas Mining Center,†Bit’s announcement concludes. “Over 98% of the company’s total power capacity would be generated by clean and low-carbon energy. Going forward, Bit Mining intends to do its part, fulfill its obligations to achieving carbon neutrality and proactively seek out additional high-quality mining resources overseas.â€
