CleanSpark Releases May 2023 Bitcoin Mining Update
The Company’s bitcoin holdings grew 44%; Bitcoin mined increased 16% in May, to 609 BTC
LAS VEGAS, June 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CleanSpark Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK), America’s Bitcoin Miner™, today released its unaudited bitcoin mining and operations update for the month ending May 31, 2023.
“We achieved a significant milestone during the month of May,” said Zach Bradford, CEO. “Not only do we continue to increase the amount of bitcoin in our treasury, but we also surpassed $100 million in revenue for our fiscal year to date. Importantly, we achieved this milestone with the bulk of our expansion expected to come later this year.
“Additionally, the amount of bitcoin we mined this month exceeded expectations, largely due to increases in operational efficiency and a brief, albeit significant, increase in transaction fees. For about five days in May, fees were elevated because of increased interest in ordinals on the blockchain. At its peak, our bitcoin production jumped to nearly 30 bitcoins in a single day, almost double our normal daily production of about 18 bitcoins. Since then, transaction fees have normalized.”
May Bitcoin Mining Update (unaudited)
- Bitcoin mined in May: 609
- CY2023 bitcoin mined: 3,004
- Total BTC holdings as of May 31: 451
- Total BTC converted for operations and growth in May: 471

The Company funded growth and operations through the sale of 471 bitcoins in May 2023 at an average of approximately $27,400 per BTC. Sales of BTC equated to proceeds of approximately $12.9 million. May daily BTC mined averaged 19.6 and reached a high of 29.6, due to a brief period of unusually high transaction fees.
Washington. The 50MW expansion continues to track according to projected timelines, despite a series of rain delays that temporarily slowed down progress. Miners are arriving daily with all units expected to be at the facility by the end of the month. Racking has begun and energization is expected to begin in the second half of June.
