State Of The Art Mining Infrastructure
Bitfury Blockbox: Overview
- Capacity of 1.1 MW of power supply per BlockBox.
- Require reliable internet connection with at least 2 Mbps and maximum 70 ms latency.
- Each unit includes 176 air-cooled mining servers that deliver a total hashrate of 7.5 PH/s from over 100,000 custom ASIC chips.
BlockBoxAC Key Benefits
BlockBox AC is based on modern hardware and software manufactured by Bitfury. The basic configuration includes 176 Bitfury B8 servers. Each server houses six hashboards, each contains 96 specialized ASIC bitcoin mining chips. Each BlockBox has over 100,000 ASIC mining chips.
The Bitfury BlockBox AC is monitored on-site and remotely using built-in software and/or a mobile app, displaying key performance indicators.
The BlockBox AC, both software and hardware components, can be easily upgraded. The modular architecture of the Bitfury BlockBox AC and its Bitfury В8 servers allows it to keep in place more than the half of components when upgrading hardware to keep up with technology advances and ASIC chips progress.
It takes two days to install Bitfury BlockBox AC on a properly prepared site. Once installed, the solution connects to the mining pool, and immediately starts to generate income.
Bitfury BlockBox AC is a full-featured, self-contained solution for bitcoin mining, delivered in a 40’ High Cube freight container. Once installed, no further investments of time, capital, or expertise are required for the solution maintenance.
The Bitfury BlockBox AC solution is supported. Bitfury engineers and service partners ensure the equipment operates at top capacity. All solution components – from servers and their elements to power supply units and coolers – are replaceable.

Medicine Hat, Alberta Project
Medicine Hat, Alberta, a warm, vibrant, feel-good city, with the attitude and natural backdrop to match, will be home to Hut 8 Mining’s newest BlockBox Data Centre. The City offers stable, cost-competitive utility rates and has been welcoming and supportive of Hut 8 Mining’s fast paced growth plans. This partnership, together with the success of Hut 8’s recent capital raising efforts and the provision of land and electricity through CMH, will enable the Company to service the full complement of 40 BlockBox Data Centers with an aggregate power capacity of approximately 42 MW.
Drumheller, Alberta Project
Drumheller, Alberta, a popular tourist destination for “Hoodoos”, or tent rocks and dinosaur bones is home to Hut 8 Mining’s first Blockbox Data Centers. Being strategically located in Alberta where electricity costs are low due to an abundance of natural gas power, as well as a year-round cool climate, allows Hut8 Mining to access maximize the performance of the ASIC chips. The facility has 17 BlockBoxAC data centres with an aggregate power capacity of approximately 18.7 MW.
