Marathon Digital also just secured a five-year deal with Applied Blockchain, which builds and operates data centers throughout America.
With that, Marathon “secured approximately 254 megawatts of new hosting arrangements for its Bitcoin mining operations, with an option to increase to 324 megawatts, from a variety of
