Management Commentary
In July, Cipher continued to expand operations at its Odessa facility and finished the month with the potential to mine up to 16.5 bitcoin2 per day.

“We are delighted to announce that we have increased our production numbers for the month of July despite very challenging operating conditions,” said Tyler Page, CEO of Cipher. “Similar to what we experienced last month, Texas saw many days of extreme temperatures, lower wind production year-over-year and record demand for power. Each month our operations and technology teams make further strides as we gain greater insight into the performance of the rigs under a severe operating environment. An important feature of our Odessa PPA is the ability to sell power back to the grid, and as of last month, we began reporting those sales monthly as a bitcoin equivalent figure in the table above.”

“Last month we announced that we took delivery of all 11,000 Canaan rigs that we recently purchased and are very pleased with their overall performance. We remain well on track to fulfill our goal of 7.2 EH/s of self-mining capacity by the end of Q3. Finally, it is worth highlighting that we have added to our bitcoin inventory this month, which reflects both higher monthly bitcoin production and also lower capital expenditures as we near the end of our Odessa buildout.”
