US Defense Department Data Center to Become a Cryptocurrency Mining Facility
Wuhan General Group Inc. has announced that it's currently negotiating a redesign of a US Defense Department data center to transform it into a Cryptocurrency mining facility.
The Nevada investment company focused in cryptocurrency mining operations said the facility will meet security and power requirements when mining cryptocurrency. It will also provide the company with an opportunity to set new standards in cryptocurrency mining safety, stability, and security measures.
The 55,0000 sq. ft facility has over 3MW of power ready to accommodate up to 1300 mining machines for Bitcoin, Zcash, and others with an additional 12,000 to be deployed upon successful completion of its upgrade to a 30MW facility in 2019.
This new facility will launch at an optimal time in the market to strengthen the company's cryptocurrency mining division for highly scalable and flexible mining operations across all major cryptocurrencies.
The Company benefits from low-cost North American power, a cool climate, and high-speed Internet, which is critical to mining success, placing it in a competitive position to maximize profitability. Ultimately, the project comes at a time that will serve in the company's and shareholders' best interests.
Once this negotiation with Wuhan General Group is finalized, the first order of rigs from Asic miner is expected to arrive in late October and more in the coming months. The company estimates this operation to bring monthly revenue in excess of $3.5M based on current cryptocurrency market prices for the initial 1300 mining machines in operation. More information will be shared regarding the progress of the project when available.
Ramy Kamaneh, CEO said they had planned to build this operation three months ago, but with the bearish cryptocurrency market, they took a step back to reassess their strategy. The decision to wait for market stability was a good one, especially considering many cryptocurrency machines are no longer profitable in the current market. He said they acted in the best interests of the company and its shareholders and firmly believe that the market has bottomed and a bullish market is starting again.
In addition to providing optimal cryptocurrency mining performance, the facility will adhere to strict safety and security standards. As a leader in streamlined solutions that respond to the impacts of the tech industry, the company believes that this project will increase in value and also create opportunities for innovation within the sector.
