HIVE’s New Data Center
HIVE also acquired a data center facility in Boden, Sweden, to expand access to renewable hydroelectric power. The company acquired the property, including a 6-megawatt data center, from Turis AB in exchange for $750,000 cash and 345,566 HIVE common shares, valued at $2.8938 per share.
Aydin Kilic, the CEO of HIVE, commented that the data center acquisition furthers the company’s commitment to acquire hard assets and is expected to add 250 petahashes per second of additional bitcoin mining hashrate capacity.
“This new data center is only 200 meters from our existing data center,” added Johanna Thornblad, the Country President for HIVE Sweden.
Move to AI
The company has rebranded to adopt the rapidly evolving landscape of high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI). This change signifies the company’s strategic departure from its foundational focus on cryptocurrency, steering towards the fast-expanding and increasingly adopted AI technologies.
Additionally, HIVE is realigning its priorities to maximize the potential of its Supermicro servers, aiming to provide significant computational resources to the AI and HPC sectors.
