比特币矿商Blockcap完成了由Off The Chain牵头的7500万美元投资, 铸造数字

Blockcap, one of North America’s fastest-growing Bitcoin (比特币) mining companies, has secured sizable investments from some of crypto’s biggest names, setting the stage for significant expansion in the year ahead.

Off The Chain Capital and Foundry Digital, a subsidiary of Digital Currency Group, contributed to the $75 million haul, Blockcap announced Wednesday. The funding will go towards scaling the company’s mining operations and promoting the continued growth of digital assets in the United States.

Blockcap was founded in 2020 by a group of blockchain veterans. It now commands a fleet of roughly 12,000 machines mining roughly 7 每天BTC. That figure is expected to grow to more than 30,000 by the end of the year, helping the company expand its hashing power to more than 3.5 EH/s. 正如Cointelegraph先前报道的那样, Blockcap estimates that its mining hardware is valued at $270 million on secondary markets.

目前, Blockcap accounts for nearly 1% of all Bitcoin network transactions, the company said Wednesday.

Mike Colyer, Foundry Digital’s CEO, said his firm sees “opportunity for long-term growth in Blockcap.”

Biran Estes, Off The Chain’s chief investment officer, said Blockcap’s acquisition of tens of thousands of miners demonstrates “just how massive Blockcap has become.” He explained:

“Mining is the critical infrastructure necessary to ensure the ecosystem progresses and we believe that Blockcap will continue to catalyze the growth of digital assets in cyberspace.”

In addition to expanding its mining operations, Blockcap is looking to promote mainstream adoption of blockhain technology, especially in the United States. Darin Feinstein, Blockcap’s executive chairman, 说过:

“We’re excited for what is in store for digital asset mining here, especially the associated benefits of economic growth and job creation.”

China continues to lead the Bitcoin mining industry, though its dominance appears to be smaller than initially believed. As of July 2020, the Asian superpower probably accounted for roughly half of the global Bitcoin mining industry — not 65% as many believed. 当时, 14% of mining capacity came from the United States.
