    Upon Delivery and Full Installation, the Company’s Mining Operations Will Include 23,560 Next Generation Miners, Making it the Largest Self-Miner in North America with a Total Hashrate of 2.56 EH/s Projected Hashrate Projected HashrateLAS VEGAS, Oct. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marathon Patent Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA) ("Marathon" or "Company"), the largest publicly traded Bitcoin self-mining companies in North America, today announced that it has entered into a contract with Bitmain to purchase an additional 10,000 next generation Antminer S-19 Pro ASIC Miners.Each miner produces 110 TH/s (Terahash) adding 1.10 EH/s (Exahash) to the Company’s existing operation of 2,560 miners. 500 additional S-19 Pro Miners will arrive at Marathon’s Hardin MT facility in November 2020. Beginning in 2021, the Company will receive the following shipments of S-19 Pro Miners: 4,000 in January, 6,300 in February, 4,800 in March, 1,800 in April, 1,800 in May and finally 1,800 in June. Marathon’s chief executive officer, Merrick Okamoto, stated, “We are pleased to announce the continued growth of our mining operations against the backdrop of recently increasing Bitcoin prices. Upon delivery and full Installation of all purchased miners, the Company’s mining operations will include 23,560 next generation miners bringing our total hashrate to 2.56 Eh/s and making us the largest self-miner in North America.“The delivery of these new 10,000 S-19 Pro miners is scheduled to begin in January 2021 and will be completed by March 2021. It is important to note that this delivery is quicker than our previous order for 10,500 miners, which will be delivered between January and June 2021. These new 10,000 miners are expected to all be deployed in Q1, three months earlier than our last purchase. As a result, there will be a substantial increase in our Bitcoin Mining revenue sooner than we had anticipated.”Irene Gao, Antminer Sales Director of NCSA Region, Bitmain, commented, "We are pleased to have provided Marathon with another 10,000 of Bitmain’s latest generation of Antminer S-19 Pro mining hardware. Equipped with the most advanced chipset currently available, the high-performance and low power consumption of the miners will significantly improve operations of Marathon's mining business.

    Marathon Patent Group Announces Joint Venture with Beowulf Energy for 105-Megawatt Bitcoin Mining Data Center

    The Data Center Will Generate 1.265 EH/S by 2Q 2021 with an Option to Expand to 3.320 EH/S. Marathon Will Own 100% of the Data Center, Which Will Have One of the Lowest Energy Costs in the U.S. for a Bitcoin Mining Operation. Beowulf Presently Owns and Manages Over 2.3 Gigawatts of Electric Generating Capacity; Beowulf has Earmarked 500 Megawatts for Future Blockchain and Data Center ExpansionLAS VEGAS, Oct. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marathon Patent Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA) ("Marathon" or "Company") today announced the formation of a new joint venture with Beowulf Energy LLC (“Beowulf”) focused on delivering low cost power to Marathon’s Bitcoin mining operations.In connection with the joint venture, Marathon has entered into agreements with Beowulf to co-locate its Bitcoin Mining Data Center (the “Data Center”) at the Big Horn Data Hub, which comprises 20 acres of land adjacent to Beowulf’s Hardin Generating Station, a 105 MW power facility located in Hardin, Montana. Beowulf will provide power from the Hardin plant to the Data Center at a production cost of $0.028/kWh. Beowulf will also become an equity shareholder of Marathon as a result of the joint venture. Marathon will retain 100% of the Bitcoin mining output generated at the Data Center.Marathon will deploy the 11,500 next generation S19 Pro Antminers (110 TH/s) it previously acquired through its partnership with Bitmain Inc. at the Data Center. These miners will generate 1.265 EH/s when fully deployed, with full deployment anticipated through Q2 2021. Currently, 500 of the S19 Pro Antminers have been delivered and deployed at the Data Center. The Data Center has the capacity to deploy up to 30,000 S19 Pro Miners that will generate 3.320 EH/s, providing Marathon with substantial opportunity for future expansion.The Data Center will lower Marathon’s aggregate mining cost for electricity and data center management to $0.034/kWh, which is 38% below the Company’s current cost of mining. This low-cost electricity reduces Marathon’s breakeven costs to produce Bitcoin from approximately $7,500 per Bitcoin today to $4,600 per Bitcoin, dramatically improving the Company’s future profitability.   Marathon Chairman and CEO Merrick Okamoto stated, “The closing of this joint venture with Beowulf represents the completion of a long journey to own a Bitcoin mining facility. Partnering with an experienced independent power producer enables us to maintain control and certainty of Marathon’s energy and operational costs, at rates that represent some of the lowest in North America.”Nazar Khan, Executive Vice President of Beowulf, commented, “In pursuing the co-location of a Bitcoin mining operation at Hardin, we sought to capture the inherent value to the Data Center of securing a long-term supply of reliable, secure, and low-cost power while benefitting from the significant on-site technical expertise to ensure efficient operations. Our expert in-house engineers and technicians have designed the Data Center to support the immense computing speeds of the latest generation S19 Pro Antminers. Located in Eastern Montana, the Data Center has a meaningful competitive advantage on energy pricing, moderate climate, and regulatory stability. Beowulf has also earmarked an additional 500 megawatts of generation capacity for subsequent blockchain and data center expansion.”Investor NoticeInvesting in our securities involves a high degree of risk.
