Bitcoin miner KnC is planning another four-week data centre build-out

Peter Sayer | Dec. 14, 2015
When KnCMiner takes delivery of a new generation of bitcoin mining chips, it wants them up and running as quickly as possible

The new datacenter, like the last one, will have a power consumption of 20MW, but Cole won't say how many hashes per second it will perform.

"The hashing capacity is commercially sensitive," he said, and depends on many factors, including the design of the mining chips and the quality of the batch used.

The computing resources dedicated to bitcoin mining worldwide have a capacity of about 633 petahashes per second, and about 5 percent of those resources are controlled by KnC, according to blockchain.info, which provides statistics on bitcoin transactions.
