Bryan Bullett, Bit Digital’s CEO, stated: “By signing this agreement,we believe that Bit Digital has secured power and hosting sufficient to complete the migration of our current fleet to North America in full, and additional capacity to accommodate expected miner purchases. As previously announced, we anticipate significant purchase activity in the coming months, due to spot market dislocation in China and our unique access to that market. This agreement with Digihost secures a key component of activating this opportunity, and is expected to enable rapid deployment of newly purchased miners. We are delighted to build on our existing collaboration with Digihost, and look forward to continued successes together.”
