Unaudited October Monthly Operating Results Summary
- Total monthly revenue equivalent of 110 BTC1 or about $3.28 million.
- Commenced new co-location services customer deployment with a total planned deployment of 15,876 miners upon the completion of the deployment.
- $1.83 million self-mining revenue, $1.36 million energy management revenue, and commencement of new co-location deployment provided initial $0.08 million co-location services revenue which is expected to significantly ramp up as deployment continues and is completed.
- Total Power Capacity was approximately 109 MW with capacity for approximately 35,480 miners.
Mawson’s sites in Pennsylvania, Midland and Bellefonte, have approximately 109 MW of power capacity capable of supporting 35,480 miners for either self-mining or co-location. The Midland facility has approximately 100 MW of power and the capacity to support a total of approximately 32,930 miners for self-mining and/or co-location services. In mid-October, Mawson announced the Company had signed an agreement with a subsidiary of Consensus Technology Group (“CTG”) for co-location services for approximately 15,876 Bitmain Antminer S19 XP miners or approximately 50 MW at its Midland site. Mawson received initial shipments of CTG’s miners and commenced installing miners at the end of October. At the end of October, the Bellefonte facility was operating at approximately 8.8 MW of capacity and is used entirely for self-mining purposes.
In October, total revenue from Mawson’s Energy Market Program increased significantly M/M to $1.36 million as the Company increased its participation in energy management programs. Mawson expects to continue to assess and evaluate opportunities to enhance margins across its platforms.

Statements about hashrate capacity
Statements in the press release about hashrate capacity (including ‘installed capacity’ or ‘nameplate capacity’), will often differ from the actual or observed hashrate. These terms generally make certain assumptions about the efficiency of the ASIC miners that are in use. Some ASIC miner models will consume less power to create the same amount of hashing power than other ASIC miner models (typically more recent models are more efficient). Many ASIC miner fleets are blended fleets, including various ASIC miner models each with different efficiency ratings. Hashrate capacity figures typically assume 100% deployment of ASIC miners. Given the large numbers of computing units (often numbering in the tens of thousands), ASIC mining fleets are rarely 100% deployed and online at any one time. This can be due to a variety of factors, including ASIC miners being under maintenance, in repair workshops, in storage, in transit, or due to technical faults and breakdowns. Once deployed and online, the actual or observed hashrate can be influenced by other factors such as heat, overclocking (causing the ASIC miner to perform at levels higher than the manufacturer’s specifications), the age, and wear and tear exhibited by the ASIC miners and also by the limitations of the surrounding infrastructure, such as power outages, and MDC and transformer breakdowns. Construction and development delays are a common risk for mining data centers, for example due to weather, permitting delays, or labor and equipment shortages. Investors should consider all risk factors related to uptime when considering these figures, which are a best-case scenario.
CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Mawson cautions that statements in this press release that are not a description of historical fact are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
