Monthly updates on the news, data, and software that matter for bitcoin miners.
January brought some relief to miners following the chaotic end to 2022, but we’re noway near out of the woods yet! The month also saw a large miner deploy its first Intel-powered rigs, an African national park is mining bitcoin, and lawmakers in some US states have introduced bills to protect their citizens’ rights to mine bitcoin.
This and much more below!
