A significant Bitcoin miner in North America, Marathon Digital Holdings, claimed generating a record 687 Bitcoin in January 2023. In the same month, the business sold 1,500 Bitcoin while holding 11,418. This year, it plans to sell more of its Bitcoin holdings.
Fred Thiel, Marathon’s chairman and chief executive officer, attributes the increase in bitcoin output to a fruitful partnership with the company’s hosting provider in McCamey, Texas. Due to the technological challenges this collaboration resolved, Bitcoin manufacturing increased by 45% between December 2022 and January 2023.

However, per the press statement, Marathon Digital Holdings’ BTC production rose 49% in January, from 462 to 687 units. This led to an average daily output increase of 49%, from 14.9 to 22.1 units.
Additionally, the operational and energized hash rate (EH/s) saw a 103% increase to 7.3 in January 2023, up from 3.6 in January 2022, according to the press statement. Additionally, the installed hash rate (EH/s) saw a 206% boost, reaching 11.0, compared to 3.6 in January 2022.
With steady bitcoin production, Marathon chose to sell some holdings to fund operations. The sales did not greatly affect its unrestricted Bitcoin holdings, which rose from 7,815 to 8,090 from December 2022 to January 2023. The company finished January 2023 with $133.8 million in available cash.
Marathon Digital targets global energy-efficient bitcoin mining leadership through miner energization and performance improvement. Goal: install 23 exahashes by mid-2023.
Marathon plans to open its facilities in Garden City, Texas and Ellendale, North Dakota in Q1 2023. As of February 1st, 2023, Marathon’s fleet of approximately 71,000 BTC servers has a theoretical capacity of 7.3 EH/s, achieved by turning on 2,100 S19 XPs in January at the Jamestown plant.
