OLB Group Surges After Starting Bitcoin Mining Operation

·1 min read

OLB Group’s (Nasdaq: OLB) share price jumped more than 10% on Tuesday after the e-commerce merchant service provider said its DMint unit started mining bitcoin with 100 Antminer S19j Pro mining machines.

  • DMint expects to have a total of 1,000 miners in operation at its newly installed Bradford, Pennsylvania, data center by the end of the year.

  • The company plans to have a total of 24,000 mining computers by the fall of 2023, with capacity to achieve 2.4 exahash per second hashrate.

  • “Once all 1,000 miners are fully operational, OLB Group will have the capacity for an additional $1.1 million in revenue monthly, assuming a base market price of $45,000 per bitcoin,” Chairman and CEO Ronny Yakov said in a statement.

  • The move comes as bitcoin mining has been a very profitable business, given the cryptocurrency’s recent bull run. Recently, Wall Street firm D.A. Davidson said that the miners are “literally printing money” in the current market.
