The resale of energy allowed the company to partially offset the losses from the fall in the value of bitcoin and the beginning of the “crypto winter”. In July 2022, the company sold 275 mined coins for approximately $5,6 million, according to Bloomberg. This is a 28% decrease in mining compared to the previous month.
