2,000 Rigs Live In Asia
In December 2017, Giginex announced 2,000 rigs are live at its data center in Asia. The facility is leased by Diginex, with power supplied by a nearby hydroelectric facility. All the capacity is currently being used for cryptocurrency mining. With 12,000 graphics cards, each rig has computation power of approx. 160 MH/s. The facility, located close to Diginex’s headquarters in Hong Kong, is the first step in the expansion of Diginex’s Mining/HPC Data Center business.
New Cryptocurrency Mining Centers In Europe
Following the launch of the first 2,000 rigs in Asia in December 2017, Diginex has sent another 200 rigs to data centers in Sweden and Switzerland to test their performance on potential data center locations. The company is expected to enter into a long-term lease through a newly formed joint venture with local operating partners who will be responsible for optimizing the performance of Diginex’s GPU Cards. Although all mining activities in Europe are intended to be solely for Diginex, computing power will also be made available to third parties and partners for GPU accelerated high-performance computing applications.
