LM Funding America, Inc. (NASDAQ: LMFA) (“LM Funding” or “LMFA”) today announced that it has entered into a hosting and services agreement with a multi-state data hosting company to host up to 4,200 of LMFA’s S19J Pro Antminer Machines (S19J) (100 TH/s) (“Bitmain Miner Machines”). The Bitmain S19J Pro Antminer Machine is a high efficiency, high hash rate machine for Secure Hashing Algorithm (SHA) 256 mining that generates an average hash rate of 100 TH/s and has an average power consumption 3,000 kWh. LMFA anticipates that once all 4,200 machines are operational at the new facility, LMFA will have a total capacity of approximately 420 petahash capable of generating approximately 53 Bitcoin per month based on difficulty rates.1 LMFA expects all of its 5,000 newly purchased miners, including 800 miners not being hosted by the new vendor, will be operational by the fourth quarter of 2022, potentially generating a total of 504 petahash.
Bruce M. Rodgers, Chairman and CEO of LM Funding, commented, “We understand that our machine suppliers’ supply chain issues have been largely resolved based on the information available to us, and we currently anticipate our mining operations will commence in the third quarter. As a result, we anticipate having approximately 5,000 mining machines operational in the fourth quarter of 2022, currently expected to be capable of generating approximately 764 Bitcoins per year. We also plan to take advantage of the current disruptions in the market by seeking to purchase miners at attractive valuations while hosting the machines where we can find the most economical power and quality service.”
The new agreement is for 60 months and includes full hosting and management services.
