Genesis Digital Assets, also known as GDA, has launched three new data centers for bitcoin mining in western South Carolina.
The move is part of a broader data center expansion across the United States, as the nation now contributes 2% of the Bitcoin network total hash rate. GDA also intends to use South Carolina’s renewable energy to power its new data centers. One facility near Anderson will use dry-type distribution transformers and have a total capacity of 18 MW. Another near Pacolet will be run on hydroelectric energy.
GDA is a large scale crypto mining firm with 20 mining farms across North America, Europe and central Asia, surpassing 400 MW in total power capacity, according to a company release.
