Cleanspark CEO Says Proprietary Mining Model Gives Company Greater Control and Efficiency

Cleanspark, the publicly listed bitcoin mining firm (Nasdaq: CLSK), has announced that it acquired 20,000 Antminer S19j Pro+ units for $43.6 million. The company stated that it used coupons that saved it 25%, bringing the total price down to $32.3 million at settlement.
