“We deployed 14,000 new ASIC servers in July. These deployments increased our total hashrate to approximately 19.3 EH/s, representing the largest operating capacity of any listed company in North America,” said Mike Levitt, CEO, Core Scientific.
“Proceeds from Bitcoin sales in July were primarily used to pay for capital investments related to increasing data centre capacity as well as payments due to Bitmain for the 100,000 ASIC server order placed in 2021,” added Levitt.
The price of Ethereum (ETH) this morning was $1,735.13 and it was up by 4.58 per cent.

If the ‘Ethereum Merge’ does happen on the proposed date of September 19), this price surge today could be the result of crypto holders trying to hoard ETH before that happens.
