As far as the Bitmain Antminer S19 models are concerned, 5,000 are currently operating and the remaining 1,000 machines will be transferred by Q3 2021. Greenidge will join a number of firms that are already members of the Foundry USA pool alliance. Other Foundry members include Hive, Bitdeer, Bit Digital, Blockcap, Hut 8, and Bitfarms. Jeffrey Kirt, the CEO of Greenidge explained that Foundry and the company had a previous relationship in hosting arrangements.

“Foundry has been a longtime hosting customer of Greenidge and this partnership expands our existing relationship as Greenidge grows outside of New York,” Kirt said in a statement.

The partnership with Foundry follows Greenidge’s plans to develop a mining facility in South Carolina. Greenidge details that the carbon-neutral Spartanburg facility will be ready in 2021 or early 2022.

“The Spartanburg site will be the company’s second mining facility in the United States as it seeks to expand to 500 MW of mining capacity by 2025,” the announcement on Wednesday details. Greenidge’s latest arrangement will add “approximately 800 petahashes of computing power to the [Foundry USA] pool” or 0.8 EH/s of hashpower.
