In November 2021, the company mined 265 Bitcoins, which resulted in an average production rate of 8.83 Bitcoin per day. Further, all the self-mined Bitcoin for the month of November were deposited into custody, in line with Hut 8 Mining’s Hodl strategy.

Mining Equipment Deployment Update
In November, Hut 8 Mining completed the deployment of NVIDIA (NVDA) chips at its site in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Notably, the NVIDIA CMPs have been deployed to mine the Ethereum network via Luxor pool, and consistent with the company’s Hodl strategy, payouts are received in Bitcoin.
Head of Technology at Hut 8 Mining, Jason Zaluski, commented, “Our NVIDIA CMP deployment is contributing revenue of approximately $140,000 per day, based upon current mining economics. Given the low power intensity of these chips, our cost per Bitcoin of approximately $3,000 means we are achieving unit margins in excess of 95%.” (See Hut 8 Mining stock charts on TipRanks)
