BTC mining company Marathon Digital Holdings (MARA) released a report on its Bitcoin production and mining operation updates for September 2022. According to the report, Marathon produced 360 BTC in September 2022 and 616 BTC in Q3 2022.

Marathon’s financial exposure to Compute North from investments includes $10 million in convertible preferred stock, $21.3 million related to an unsecured senior promissory note, and $50 million in operating deposits to Compute North entities.
The Chairman and CEO at Marathon Digital Holdings, Fred Thiel expressed:
Our operations at the King Mountain wind farm, among others, are hosted by Compute North, who recently initiated Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. Compute North has been a supportive partner, and we respect this voluntary step to stabilize their business.
