Hut 8 Mining Corp. (TSX:HUT) has received its planned 1,000 M31S and 1,000 M31S+ machines on-site at its Medicine Hat facility, which together will have an output of 154 PH/s using approximately 6.7MW of power. Jimmy Vaiopoulos, the company's Interim CEO, said:

"With the recent press releases over the last six weeks including this new equipment being installed, the transfer of Clarke chips to Medicine Hat completed, and the transfer of management of both sites finalized, Hut 8 has increased its hash rate while lowering its cost to mine bitcoin, thereby strengthening its gross mining margins. Every dollar and bitcoin counts in the mining sector as we continue to upgrade our ASIC chips and strive to be one of the industry's lowest cost miners."
