Northern Bitcoin prepared to enter the market with its new mining container

  • New container solution opens up additional expansion potential
  • Innovative air cooling with high miner density
  • Flexible response to site options in cool climates

Frankfurt am Main, Germany – September 09, 2019.
Northern Bitcoin AG (XETRA: NB2, ISIN: DE000A0SMU87) has successfully completed the tests for its new air-cooled mining container at its test site in Frankfurt-Hoechst.

The innovative mining container, in which 144 ASIC miners are installed, is a custom-made construction based on a 20-foot container. It was specifically developed for outdoor operation. To cool the container, cold outside air is ingested and filtered through lamellae mounted in an outer wall and led through the container past the mining hardware. The warm exhaust air is vented through the opposite container wall. The performance of the fans is variable and controlled by temperature sensors. The concept was developed together with partners in Germany and brought to market maturity.

With this additional, mobile, air-cooled container solution, Northern Bitcoin AG is opening up further, even remote locations in the permanently cool regions of the world, where sustainable electricity, for example from hydropower, is available at extremely low cost and in abundance. Together with the water-cooled containers that have been successfully in use in Norway for over a year, Northern Bitcoin now has two different mobile container solutions for practically any location in the Nordic countries.

Moritz Jäger, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Northern Bitcoin, comments: “Already with our water-cooled container solution we have a revolutionary approach in place to mine Bitcoins sustainably and cost-effectively. The new air-cooled technology has been optimized for year-round cool locations. With the new container variant, we are thus extending our option to open up new locations in Scandinavia for our Bitcoin mining. Like the water-cooled variant, also the air-cooled mining container is highly mobile. This allows us to react flexibly to all location options at short notice for conducting highly efficient Bitcoin mining”.

Computers need be cooled during calculations due to the heat generated by the processors. As a result of the high computing power, this applies in particular to the special Bitcoin Mining hardware. At the Lefdal Mine Datacenter in Norway, Northern Bitcoin AG currently operates 21 water-cooled 40-foot containers, each with 210 ASIC miners. In the new, air-cooled 20-foot container, a higher miner density has been achieved due to the design. The still young Northern Bitcoin AG pursues the goal of becoming the world’s leading, sustainable Bitcoin mining company and is constantly developing its innovative mining concept according to the most state-of-the-art aspects. The new container solution will enable the company to further accelerate the scaling of its business that has just begun.
