Riot Platforms, Inc. reported a new all-time high of 740 Bitcoin mined in January 2023, despite operational disruption due to extreme weather conditions. The company was forced to temporarily close down its Rockdale facility in Texas, resulting in a reduction of its total hash rate capacity and fleet of mining machines. Riot is evaluating several options to bring online the remaining 1.9 EH/s of hash rate capacity still affected, while also holding 6,978 BTC produced by its mining operations. The company sold 700 BTC last month, generating net proceeds of $13.7 million.
