Fresh off its successful listing on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX), Phoenix Group PLC, a leading force in cryptocurrency mining and blockchain technology, announced a groundbreaking $380 million contract with major mining hardware manufacturer, Whatsminer. This agreement, representing the largest order for Whatsminer in the past two years, underscores Phoenix Group’s dominant position in the Middle East’s tech and blockchain sector.
Securing Cutting-Edge Technology and Sustainable Solutions
The contract encompasses an immediate delivery of $136 million worth of mining equipment, supplemented by an additional $246 million option. This strategic move reinforces Phoenix Group’s commitment to maintaining its market leadership and staying ahead of the curve in Bitcoin mining, especially during a period of significant growth and excitement in the industry.
Previously, Phoenix Group held the exclusive sales partnership for Bitmain’s mining hardware in the Middle East region. While continuing to utilize Bitmain equipment at their Abu Dhabi site, the company signed a historic $650 million order for additional mining rigs with Bitmain in November 2021. This latest agreement with Whatsminer further expands Phoenix Group’s strategic partnerships and diversifies its mining hardware portfolio, solidifying its position as a major player in the global mining industry.
Already an established partner and exclusive distributor of Whatsminer, Phoenix Group is taking a significant step forward by collaborating on the integration of hydro cooling miners. This initiative, currently in progress, marks a pivotal step towards establishing world-class High-Performance Computing (HPC) data centers. Far from a mere aspiration, this move reflects the company’s unwavering commitment to eco-friendly crypto mining, positioning Phoenix Group as a leader in efficient and responsible mining solutions.
