The bitcoin mining facility that DMG Blockchain Solutions announced it was building in British Columbia, Canada in July is now operational. Though the full capacity of the facility is 85 megawatts, initially only 60 megawatts will be made available at the operation that occupies 27,000 sq. ft. The power that the Mining as a Service (MaaS) operation will be using if generated purely from hydroelectricity. Besides installing a power substation purely for its needs, DMG has also had to build a road to the facility.
Unlike other crypto mining facilities which have been accused of impacting the power needs of the local communities in the places where they set up shop, DMG’s facility in British Columbia will not disenfranchise the local community — at least according to its operators.
