Merkle Standard, a privately held crypto-mining operation, is slated to be the first in the US to get a new rig. The Bitmain mining rig S19 Pro+ is slated for shipping to Merkle. It is a new technology that uses new technology for liquid cooling, reduces heat, noise and lowers power consumption as well. All of the above extend the life of the machinery.
Merkle is based in California. Bitmain is among the largest manufacturers of mining rigs in the world and will provide Merkle with 4449 of the new computers to start mining in May 2022. The combined mining capacity adds up to 840 petahash a second, per a statement issued only with CoinDesk.
The mining computer S19+ was unveiled on January 17, 2022, and has the highest power of all the Bitmain machines so far. Bitmain’s specialized rigs are known as ASICs. According to Ruslan Zinurov, who is the CEO of Merkle Standard – this order is a milestone in Merkle’s growth. Our Bitmain partnership indicates our intent to develop efficient and sustainable operations with the help of high-performance machines. We at Merkle embrace the newest technologies offered by Bitmain, a strategic partner in the crypto arena.
Merkle will set these machines up for use at its data processing center in the eastern part of Washington state. The data center has a 225 MW capacity and can be expected to go as 500 MW. The entire operation will meet carbon negative expectations and touch 4.6 exahash a second in power by December 2022.
