The BTC Mining Company, Compute North Declared Their Bankruptcy: 

Compute North provides software, hosting, huge cryptocurrency mining operations, equipment, and a Bitcoin mining pool. This is one of the biggest U.S. datacentre operators and has well-known BTC mining industry partners, including both Marathon Digital and Compass Mining.

Both businesses have issued comments on Twitter stating that, based on the data they currently have, their commercial activities would go normally.

“The personnel at Compute North told us today that bankruptcy case shouldn’t affect normal business operations. People are keeping an eye on the issue, and we’ll let you know when there are any new developments, said Compass Mining.

Mining industry has been significantly impacted by BTC’s bearish performance in 2022, and in the case of Texas, increased fuel prices and frequent power failures during sweltering heat storms haven’t helped either.

A huge mining plant in Texas that Compute North could not commercialize for months had a significant delay, Bloomberg Business writer David Pan noted on Twitter.
