Hut 8’s expansion efforts were further solidified through an amendment to its Form S-4 Registration Statement filed in June. The company disclosed its expectation of an installed self-mining capacity of 7.5 EH/s, assuming the completion of the proposed all-stock merger of equals with U.S. Data Mining Group, Inc. dba US Bitcoin Corp (USBTC). This projection includes the King Mountain, Texas site, which is owned by a joint venture involving USBTC and a leading energy partner. The merger aims to enhance Hut 8’s mining capabilities and position the company for further growth.
