New York, Nov. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit Origin Ltd (NASDAQ: BTOG) ("Bit Origin" or the "Company"), an emerging growth company engaged in the crypto mining business with diversified expansion strategies, today provided its monthly production and operation update for October 2022.
“The operation result of October 2022 slightly fell from previous month due to the strategic shutdowns of some of our underperforming miners with relatively lower efficiency. We are expecting a productivity recovery in the upcoming months once we see a rebound of Bitcoin price. We believe our capacity expansion strategy aligns with our long-term development plan. We continue adjusting our short-term strategy to optimize our operating efficiency according to the market changes.” said Mr. Lucas Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
