Silbert confirmed that Foundry is in the unknown category on BTC.com, accounting for 8.64 EH / s hash rates, or 5.6% of the total computing power of the Bitcoin network.
Founded in 2019, the American mining company Foundry calls itself “one of the largest Bitcoin miners in North America.” The firm also provides consulting, financing and equipment procurement services.
Foundry officials say they helped mining companies acquire about half of the cryptocurrency mining devices shipped to the US and Canada in 2020.
Recall that in August last year, Foundry became part of the Digital Currency Group. Following the takeover, Barry Silbert’s company pledged to invest $ 100 million in Foundry during 2021.
