NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Bit Digital, Inc. (Nasdaq: BTBT) ("Bit Digital" or the "Company"), a sustainable digital infrastructure platform for digital assets and cloud computing services, headquartered in New York City, announced its unaudited digital asset production and corporate updates for the month of October 2023.
Corporate Highlights for October 2023
In October 2023, the Company produced 111.6 BTC, a 14% decrease compared to the prior month. The decrease was primarily driven by an increase in network difficulty, a power utility mandated maintenance outage that temporarily reduced operating hash rate at one location, and the relocation of miners from one hosting location following the conclusion of that hosting agreement.
The Company's active hash rate was approximately 2.0 EH/s as of October 31, 2023.
Treasury holdings of BTC and ETH were 511.1 and 16,022.5 with a fair market value of approximately $17.7 million and $29.1 million, respectively, on October 31, 2023.
The BTC equivalent of our digital asset holdings as of October 31, 2023, was approximately 1,394.4 or approximately $48.3 million.
The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $24.4 million as of October 31, 2023.
The Company had approximately 12,752 ETH actively staked in native and liquid staking protocols as of October 31, 2023. Approximately 12,352 were natively staked and 400 ETH were deployed in liquid staking protocols as of that date.
Bit Digital earned a blended APY of approximately 4.25% on its staked ETH position for the month of October 2023.
The Company earned aggregate staking rewards of approximately 46.08 ETH during October 2023.

Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider the risks, uncertainties and forward-looking statements described under "Risk Factors" in Item 3.D of our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022. If any material risk was to occur, our business, financial condition or results of operations would likely suffer. In that event, the value of our securities could decline and you could lose part or all of your investment. The risks and uncertainties we describe are not the only ones facing us.

In addition, our past financial performance may not be a reliable indicator of future performance, and historical trends should not be used to anticipate results in the future. Future changes in the network-wide mining difficulty rate or bitcoin hash rate may also materially affect the future performance of Bit Digital's production of bitcoin. Actual operating results will vary depending on many factors including network difficulty rate, total hash rate of the network, the operations of our facilities, the status of our miners, and other factors.
