On Tuesday, Hive Digital, a bitcoin mining company based in Vancouver, revealed its acquisition of 4,800 Bitmain S19k Antminer mining rigs. Hive stated that this purchase is intended to strengthen the firm and strategically position it for the anticipated reward halving.Vancouver's Hive Digital Ups Ante With 4,800 Antminer Buy
In recent months, there has been a notable surge in bitcoin mining companies acquiring substantial quantities of mining rigs from leading manufacturers. Hive Digital (Nasdaq: HIVE) joined this trend on November 14, announcing their purchase of 4,800 Antminer S19k Pro units from Bitmain. The company expects these units to be delivered within 30 days, aiming to enhance Hive's efficiency measured in joules per terahash (J/T).
The Antminer S19k Pro, a SHA256-based, air-cooled mining rig, boasts a hashrate capability of up to 120 terahash per second (TH/s). These machines consume approximately 2,760 watts (W) from the wall and have an efficiency of about 23 J/T. Hive's strategy is to upgrade its older 38 J/T machines to these more efficient 23 J/TH models prior to the block reward halving. Scheduled for April 2024, this halving event will slash miners' earnings by over half.
Recent data from theminermag.com indicates that Hive is 'one of the least efficient operations.' According to Miner Mag, Hive's bitcoin mining costs surged by 21.2% in the third quarter, reaching over $22,000 per BTC mined. Hive also revealed on Tuesday that it has acquired a total of 8...
|Crypto Miner Hive Blockchain Posted Net Loss of $90.4M for Q3 2022
Crypto mining saw severe losses last year as prices went south. Several notable players in the space slid into bankruptcy, while others had to take cost-cut measures and shut down branches.
This was also reflected in the Canadian cryptocurrency miner Hive Blockchain's revenue, which halved to $14.3 million in Q3 as compared $29.6 million total it made in the previous three-month period.
Hive Blockchain's Q3 Result
According to the official report, Hive said hedging its energy contracts, selling power back to the grid, and optimizing its operating capacity to focus on maximum profit per KWHR helped it realize a profit from mining operations in the third quarter of 2022.
During this period, it reportedly mined 787 Bitcoin, with a 25% Gross Mining Margin representing $3.62 million of income from mining operations.
The Vancouver-based cryptocurrency miner recorded a net loss of over $90 million as a result of the 'impairment from the value of ASIC and GPU chips declining with the drop in Bitcoin and Ethereum prices and the mark-to-market Bitcoin HODL position.'
Moreover, the falling crypto prices considerably affected its gross mining margin, which fell by 77% to $3.6 million in Q3 2022 from $15.9 million in the same period in the previous year.
Ethereum Mining Out of the Picture
Q3 2022 was the first quarter that the company did not mine any ETH following the Merge upgrade in September. Hive's Executive Chairman Frank Holmes remains optimistic even as mining the world's largest ...
|FBI Announces Takedown of Hive Ransomware Network
The FBI announced the takedown of Hive, a ransomware network with members across multiple states in Europe and North America, in a recent press release.
The US agency stated that they had been on the case since at least 2021.
Despite the efforts of the FBI, the network was tough to crack. However, in July of 2022, law enforcement was able to penetrate the cybercrime group’s control center, gaining access to the decryption keys that were to be given to victims who paid the requested ransom.
A high-profile example of this attack would be the encryption of the Costa Rican healthcare service’s computers during the spring of 2022, with Hive requesting $5 million in Bitcoin in exchange for decryption.
As a result, over the last few months, the FBI quietly approached the victims of the attacks, offering them the keys and denying up to $130 million in ransomware payments, effectively cutting off the group from funding. The hackers are believed to have secured around $100 million in ransom payments across more than 1,500 victims – which means the FBI effectively denied them more than half of all potential payouts.
The FBI reached out to both victims who contacted law enforcement and those who didn’t. Unfortunately, only 20% of Hive’s victims asked for help, prompting FBI Director Christopher Wray to remind the public that often, the only way victims of cybercrime can be assisted is if they reach out.

|Hive Ransomware Network Dismantled by American, European Law Enforcement
Law enforcement authorities from over a dozen countries in Europe and North America have taken part in disrupting the activities of the Hive ransomware group, the U.S. Justice Department and Europol announced. Hive is believed to have targeted various organizations worldwide in the past couple of years, often extorting payments in cryptocurrency.Captured Decryption Keys Helped Hive Victims Avoid Paying $130 Million in Ransom
Ransomware network Hive, which has had around 1,500 victims in more than 80 countries, has been hit in a months-long disruption campaign, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation (Europol) revealed. A total of 13 nations participated in the operation, including EU member states, the U.K. and Canada.
Hive has been identified as a major cybersecurity threat as the ransomware has been used by affiliated actors to compromise and encrypt data and computer systems of government facilities, oil multinationals, IT and telecom companies in the EU and U.S., Europol said. Hospitals, schools, financial firms, and critical infrastructure have been targeted, the DOJ noted.
It has been one of the most prolific ransomware strains, Chainalysis pointed out, which has collected at least $100 million from victims since its launch in 2021. A recent report by the blockchain forensics company unveiled that revenue from such attacks has decreased last year, with a growing number of affected organizations refusing to pay t...
|Hive Blockchain Bucks The Bearish Trend By Holding $68 Million In Bitcoi...
The extreme microeconomic factors, rising inflation, and increased energy cost have impacted the profitability of Bitcoin miners. Amid the ongoing bear market, many Bitcoin miners find it difficult to stay afloat and maintain their operation costs.
Moreover, the Bitcoin hash rate is surging, further increasing the pressure on miners. Most miners obtained high-interest loans, which they could not offset due to the current economic conditions.
According to a Bloomberg report, some mining firms like Core Scientific have warned investors of impending bankruptcy. Other Bitcoin miners, such as Iris Energy and Argo Blockchain, are among the mining firms feeling the pain from the harsh conditions.
HIVE Declares Debt-free Balance Sheet Amid Bearish Mining Returns
However, in all these difficulties, a Canadian Bitcoin miner called Hive Blockchain (HIVE) reportedly released its production report. The report revealed that Hive Blockchain has 3,311 Bitcoin worth $68.8 million.
The report showed that the mining firm is debt-free while its counterparts feel the pinch from the crypto winter.
In October, HIVE mined 307 BTC at an average of 115 BTC per exhaust. In a statement, the executive chairman of HIVE, Frank Holmes, confirmed how proud they are of the results. Holmes said they are happy to produce above 300 BTC monthly.

|Hive Blockchain Reveals No Debt Costs as it Holds 3,311 Bitcoin
Prominent Bitcoin miner Hive Blockchain revealed having 3,311 Bitcoin, worth more than $68 million, as of November 5, 2022.
In its latest production report, the Canadian firm said it does not have expensive borrowing against equipment such as ASICs or GPU chips, or digital assets.
Amidst Bitcoin's price hovering around $20k, difficulty soaring, and high energy costs, miners in the network are under tremendous pressure. Mining companies, too, have been reeling under the bear market.
Compute North filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas earlier this year, while Iris Energy disposed of $100 million in equity in a bid to generate some cash.
Firms such as Argo and CleansSpark borrowed millions against their mining equipment.
Hive, on the other hand, has managed to grow its balance sheet of Bitcoin in the last fiscal quarter.
By June-end, HIVE had 3,231 Bitcoin, and as of November 5, 2022, the firm has 3,311 Bitcoin, with a market value of over $70 million USD.
The company's Executive Chairman Frank Holmes said,
'We are very happy to be producing over 300 Bitcoin per month, which is about 1% of the global network, even when network difficulty is at an all-time high. We have sold all our Ethereum holdings. In October we produced an average of 9.9 Bitcoin per day.'
Earlier this year, Hive entered into an agreement with Intel to purchase new ASIC chips.
As reported earlier, the deal was part of the Canadian entity's broader...

|Hive Investments: A Next-Gen DaaS and NFT Ecosystem
The crypto and blockchain industry has grown beyond just trading cryptocurrencies. Today, blockchain concepts like decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have attracted many investors to the space with the hope of making massive gains.
While some investors are experienced with these complex DeFi protocols, the average Joe interested in DeFi products has neither the experience nor the technical skill to maximize their opportunities in the ecosystem.
The emergence of DeFi-as-a-Service (DaaS) has changed that narrative, as DaaS protocols are able to manage a treasury of funds on behalf of investors with the returns distributed among them according to their contributions.
However, many DaaS protocols also pose significant risks to unwary investors due to the volatile nature of the cryptocurrency space. Hive Investments intends to become the go-to DaaS platform for the industry by providing investors with long-term sustainability.

|Green Mining Company HIVE Secures Deal To Buy A Number Of Intel's ...
The ESG-focused mining company HIVE is the latest organization to sign a deal with Intel. It joins Block, Argo Blockchain, and GRIID, as the first clients and testers of the giant’s new ASICs. Intel’s Bonanza Mine project is quickly becoming one of bitcoin’s stories of the year. It's funny that, so far, no one has seen the equipment. The idea of a bitcoin miner made in the US is appealing, though. Plus, the project’s rollout has been masterful so far.
The headline here is that “HIVE owns state-of-the-art, green energy-powered data centre facilities in Canada, Sweden, and Iceland, where we source only green energy to mine.” In a recent press release, the company announced the Intel deal and its intention to expand into the US. “The Company is planning for a 100 MW deployment at one of Compute North's renewable energy campuses in Texas.”
HIVE self-proclaimed itself “the first cryptocurrency mining company with a green energy and ESG strategy'. The company's other significant characteristic is that they’re holders. “Since the beginning of 2021, HIVE has held in secure storage the majority of its ETH and BTC coin mining rewards.” That goes in line with new data that shows that miners are quietly accumulating bitcoin as the market bleeds.
