New 50 EH/s Target Represents Approximately 100% Growth in Hash Rate during Fiscal Year 2024

Fort Lauderdale, FL, April 25, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA) ("Marathon" or "Company"), one of the world’s largest publicly traded Bitcoin miners and a leader in supporting and securing the Bitcoin ecosystem, today announced that the Company is increasing its hash rate target for fiscal year 2024 from 35-37 EH/s to 50 EH/s.

Marathon began 2024 with approximately 24.7 EH/s energized and had been planning to grow its hash rate by approximately 46% to 35-37 EH/s by the end of the year. Based on current machine orders and available capacity following its recent acquisitions, Marathon now expects to grow its operations to approximately 50 EH/s by the end of 2024. The new target represents approximately 100% growth in hash rate during 2024 and is fully funded based on Marathon’s current liquidity position.

“Given the amount of capacity we have available following our recent acquisitions and the amount of hash rate we have access to through current machine orders and options, we now believe it is possible for us to double the scale of Marathon’s mining operations in 2024 and achieve 50 exahash by the end of the year,” said Fred Thiel, Marathon’s chairman and CEO. “With our current liquidity position, this growth target is also fully funded and there is no need for us to raise additional capital to achieve our objective. By deploying state of the art equipment and our own proprietary technology, we also believe that we can improve our fleet efficiency and approach 21 joules per terahash as we grow to 50 exahash.”

Further information on Marathon’s plans for 2024 will be provided during the Company’s first quarter 2024 webcast and conference call, set for Thursday, May 9, 2024 at 5:00 pm Eastern time.
