HIVE Blockchain Technologies (NASDAQ: HIVE) (TSX.V: HIVE) (FSE: HBFA), a leading digital asset miner and green-focused data center builder and operator, today announced the earnings report for the second quarter ended Sept. 30, 2022. Among the highlights, HIVE announced that it achieved revenue of $29.6 million this quarter, through mining 858 green and clean Bitcoin and 7,309 Ethereum, which were subsequently sold to reinvest in new ASIC mining equipment. As such, HIVE’s production of Bitcoin increased by 4.5% quarter over quarter while its average daily production of Ethereum increased from 84.3 ETH per day to 94.9 ETH this quarter, prior to the Sept. 15, 2022, merge date when it ceased mining Ethereum.
“We wish to again thank our loyal shareholders for believing in our vision to mine both Ethereum and Bitcoin. We are sad to see the higher margin from mining Ethereum gone and now will be more easily compared to our Bitcoin mining peers. It was an extremely challenging quarter for the global digital asset ecosystem, where we saw the capitulation of crypto prices due to the Proof of Stake ‘PoS’ Luna token blow up in the spring and subsequent contagion from over leveraged ‘shadow banks,’ hedge funds and offshore exchanges,” said HIVE’s Executive Chairman Frank Holmes. “Strategically, we have not borrowed expensive debt against our mining equipment or pledged our Bitcoins for costly loans, thus our balance sheet remains healthy to weather this storm. We believe our low coupon fixed debt, attractive green renewable energy prices and high performing energy efficient ASIC chips will help us navigate through this crypto winter.”
