Bitcoin miner Aspen Creek Digital opens 6-megawatt facility in Colorado

Quick Take

  • Bitcoin miner Aspen Creek Digital Corporation opened a new 6-megawatt facility in Colorado, with Galaxy Digital as a hosting client.
  • The company has plans to open two more centers in Texas, a 30-megawatt and a 150-megawatt one.

Aspen Creek Digital Corporation (ACDC), a relative newcomer to the bitcoin mining industry, opened a 6-megawatt facility in Colorado, powered by solar panels.

The center is co-located behind the meter with a 10-megawatts solar farm, the company said Thursday.

ACDC is in the process of developing a few other projects across Texas, including a 30-megawatt center that is set to come online during the summer and host 10,000 ASIC miners and another 150-megawatt one.

"Recent market volatility has demonstrated the importance of our core strategy: controlling power as the principal input in bitcoin mining," said the CEO of ACDC, Alexandra DaCosta. "This design enables ACDC to withstand volatility in the bitcoin market and insulate our operations from power market fluctuations."
