AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Core Scientific, Inc.

“In June, we secured HPC hosting contracts for a total of 270 MW of our infrastructure, representing cumulative potential revenue of more than $4.7 billion over the 12-year terms,” said Adam Sullivan, Core Scientific’s Chief Executive Officer. “These agreements mark the beginning of a significant expansion of our hosting business and demonstrate the value of our high-power digital infrastructure. We continue to engage with multiple potential clients on our remaining 230 MW of infrastructure available for HPC hosting, including our initial client, CoreWeave, which retains a time-limited, non-exclusive option on the remaining capacity. We also continue to evaluate site acquisition opportunities to expand our footprint beyond the 1.2 GW of power we have currently contracted.”

“To support our HPC hosting and bitcoin mining businesses we completed a 72 MW expansion of our Denton, Texas data center to house relocated bitcoin miners from data centers designated for HPC hosting. We also improved our average self-miner energy efficiency to 23.6 joules per terahash, supporting favorable mining economics in this post-halving environment. By levering the talent and experience of our expert data center team at a time when the growth of artificial intelligence is driving unprecedented high-power data center demand, we believe that we can maximize the value of our digital infrastructure portfolio and create significant value for our shareholders,” Mr. Sullivan added.

Data Centers

As of month-end, the Company operated approximately 205,000 bitcoin miners in our data centers for both self-mining and hosting, representing a total energized hash rate of 24.6 EH/s at its seven data centers in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, North Dakota and Texas.


Core Scientific earned 430 bitcoin in June from its owned fleet of miners. As of month end, the Company operated approximately 164,000 owned bitcoin miners, representing approximately 80% of the bitcoin miners operating in its data centers and a total energized hash rate of 19.4 EH/s. To support the expansion of the Company’s HPC hosting business, bitcoin miners will be migrated from data centers designated for HPC hosting to bitcoin mining data centers. As of the end of June, approximately 1 EH/s of miners were in migration.

Hosting Services for Bitcoin Mining

In addition to its self-mining fleet, Core Scientific provided data center hosting services, technology and operating support for approximately 42,000 hosted, client-owned bitcoin miners, representing approximately 20% of the bitcoin miners operating in the Company’s data centers as of June 30, 2024. Client-owned bitcoin miners earned an estimated 110 bitcoin in June, including bitcoin rewards paid to the Company pursuant to proceeds sharing agreements.

Hosting Services for High-Performance Computing

Core Scientific’s 16 MW leased data center in Austin, Texas continued normal operations during the month of June. The Company secured two significant HPC hosting agreements with CoreWeave in June: a 200 MW agreement with total potential revenue over the life of its 12-year contracts of $3.5 billion, and a 70 MW agreement with total potential revenue of $1.225 billion over the life of its 12-year contracts.

Grid Support

In June, the Company implemented its post-halving strategy to maximize profitability by curtailing mining operations across portions of its fleet based on miner efficiency, hash price and power prices. This strategy reduced the consumption of power at its data centers on several occasions and delivered 23,366 megawatt hours to local grid partners.

Infrastructure Expansion

Core Scientific completed a 72 MW infrastructure expansion project at its Denton, Texas data center, increasing its total operational infrastructure to 832 MW. The Company also began a project to complete 100 MW of partially built infrastructure at its Pecos, Texas data center. These expansions will house bitcoin miners relocated from sites scheduled for modification to support HPC hosting.

Core Scientific is one of the largest owners and operators of high-powered digital infrastructure for bitcoin mining and hosting services in North America. Transforming energy into high value compute with superior efficiency at scale, we employ our own large fleet of computers (“miners”) to earn bitcoin for our own account and provide hosting services for large bitcoin mining and high-performance computing clients at our eight operational data centers in Georgia (2), Kentucky (1), North Carolina (1), North Dakota (1) and Texas (3). We derive the majority of our revenue from earning bitcoin for our own account (“self-mining”). To learn more, visit

All forward looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially, including: our ability to earn digital assets profitably and to attract customers for our hosting capabilities; our ability to maintain our competitive position as digital asset networks experience increases in total network hash rate; our ability to raise additional capital to continue our expansion efforts or other operations; our need for significant electric power and the limited availability of power resources; the potential failure in our critical systems, facilities or services we provide; the physical risks and regulatory changes relating to climate change; potential significant changes to the method of validating blockchain transactions; our vulnerability to physical security breaches, which could disrupt our operations; a potential slowdown in market and economic conditions, particularly those impacting the blockchain industry and the blockchain hosting market; the identification of material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting; price volatility of digital assets and bitcoin in particular; the “halving” of rewards available on the Bitcoin network, or the reduction of rewards on other networks, affecting our ability to generate revenue as our customers may not have an adequate incentive to continue mining and customers may cease mining operations altogether; the potential that insufficient awards from digital asset mining could disincentivize transaction processors from expending processing power on a particular network, which could negatively impact the utility of the network and further reduce the value of its digital assets; the requirements of our existing debt agreements for us to sell our digital assets earned from mining as they are received, preventing us from recognizing any gain from appreciation in the value of the digital assets we hold; potential changes in the interpretive positions of the SEC or its staff with respect to digital asset mining firms; the increasing likelihood that U.S. federal and state legislatures and regulatory agencies will enact laws and regulations to regulate digital assets and digital asset intermediaries; increasing scrutiny and changing expectations with respect to our ESG policies; the effectiveness of our compliance and risk management methods; the adequacy of our sources of recovery if the digital assets held by us are lost, stolen or destroyed due to third-party digital asset services; the effects of our emergence from bankruptcy on our financial results, business and business relationships; and our substantial level of indebtedness and our current liquidity constraints affecting our financial condition and ability to service our indebtedness.
