How will the deal with Intel affect the company’s development? HIVE plans to begin purchasing and placing new miners in the second half of 2022. It will take about 12 months to complete the order and deploy the capacity. The total capacity of the bitcoin farm will increase by 95%, from the current 1,9 EH/s to 3,7 EH/s.

The new miners are expected to consume less power than the current models of ASIC miners on the market. According to Aydin Kilic, President of HIVE, the company will be fully involved in the entire system development process, from design to testing the prototype and serial models of Intel.
