Genesis Digital Assets, a privately held industrial-scale bitcoin miner, plans to start a new self-hosted bitcoin mining data center in Sweden, which is expected to have up to 100 megawatts of power capacity.

 

  • The facility will be on line by 2024 and will be powered by 100% clean energy sources, the miner said in a statement on Thursday.
  • The energy mix at the facility in Sweden will be 54.5% hydro, 42.8% nuclear and 2.7% wind powered, a company spokesperson told CoinDesk.
  • “This latest expansion aligns with GDA’s focus to identify ways to power our facilities with clean energy while also creating jobs for the local economy,” said Tim Liepold, head of power at Genesis Digital Assets.
  • In September, Genesis raised $431 million to expand its bitcoin mining operations in North America and the Nordic region in a funding round that was led by Paradigm Ventures. That was on top of the $125 million the miner raised in July in a funding round that was led by Kingsway Capital.
  • In November, Genesis said that it is building a new self-hosted bitcoin mining data center in West Texas with 300 megawatt of capacity.
  • Genesis Digital Assets is different from Genesis, the crypto lending firm owned by CoinDesk parent company Digital Currency Group.
