Fred Thiel, Chairman and CEO of Marathon, attributed this significant boost in output to a higher hash rate and a substantial rise in transaction fees. Notably, transaction fees accounted for approximately 11.8% of Marathon’s monthly Bitcoin earnings, with some instances where fees exceeded the 6.25 BTC block reward due to the introduction of Ordinals. Marathon capitalized on these unusually high transaction fees, leveraging its size and increased reliability to maximize profitability.

Marathon also achieved notable milestones in operational and installed hash rates, which increased by 9% month-over-month, reaching 15.2 and 20.1 exahashes, respectively. The company remains on track to reach its goal of 23 EH/s by mid-year through continuous improvements within its fleet and ongoing construction at Applied Digital’s plant in Ellendale, ND.

In addition, Marathon recently partnered with Brink to raise up to $1 million in funding for the creators of Bitcoin Core. The collaboration successfully raised approximately $800,000 within four days, with Marathon alone contributing $500,000. Thiel expressed gratitude to the Bitcoin community for their enthusiastic support of this initiative, aimed at supporting the unpaid contributors who contribute to the smooth operation of the open-source system. To reach the $1,000,000 target, Marathon encourages the participation of every Bitcoin user and Bitcoin-related business.

Marathon’s North Dakota data centers, operated by Applied Digital, played a vital role in May, reviving over 5,500 Bitcoin miners from Marathon, accounting for roughly 0.75 EH/s. Additionally, around 5,300 S19 XPs (approximately 0.72 EH/s) were activated in Ellendale, North Dakota. Meanwhile, Marathon’s immersion mining deployment in Jamestown, ND, is progressing well, with the remaining units being activated.

As of June 1, 2023, Marathon’s active fleet comprised over 133,600 Bitcoin miners, each capable, according to manufacturer specifications, of generating approximately 15.2 EH/s.

Marathon anticipates that once all the previously acquired miners are installed, the S19 XPs, known for their energy efficiency, will contribute approximately 66% of the company’s hash rate, further optimizing its mining operations.
