What else does the report say? The analysts suggest that the growth in the number of public mining companies is due to the large players having wider access to capital, allowing them to expand faster than their private competitors. The report also says that North America accounts for the largest share of the hashrate of public companies. Overall, the mainland accounts for 44,95% of the global hashrate, according to the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance.

During the first quarter of 2022, the Marathon mining company mined a record number of bitcoins, 1259 BTC. Arcane Research also reported that Norway increased 1% of the global hashrate with green energy.
