Bitfarms Plans Green Crypto Mining Operations, Expands To The US
Canadian Bitcoin mining giant Bitfarm has made known its plans to expand to the United States by building its first US-based data center (in Washington) with the aim of establishing mining operations within the United States, hence diversifying its mining portfolio.
Bitfarm looks to establish full hydroelectric energy-powered mining rigs with the capacity to mine up to 620 petahashes per second using 6,200 Bitmain rigs. The mining firm obtained a 24 Megawatts hydropower farm in Washington to begin its mining operation.
Emiliano Grodzki, CEO of Bitfarms stated that the US capital Washington met all of the firm’s criteria, pinpointing cost-effective and efficient power supply as the reason why the firm chose Washington.
Bitcfarm’s Chief Mining Officer Ben Gagnon explained that “The facility’s hydropower is expected to cost approximately 25% less than the average cost of power at our Québec farms, making it the most cost-effective source of power currently in our portfolio and reducing our corporate-wide average to below 4 US cents/kWh…”
At the time of putting this together, Bitfarms currently has 10 farms in operation or under construction in different countries including Argentina, the United States, and Canada.

CryptoCaptain Sentiment Analysis: 74% Bullish
Bitcoin tested fresh ATH this week and is currently consolidating around the $64k region, our market sentiment chart remains very bullish despite minor bearish elements lingering around the market.
Conclusion And Outlook
The crypto market started in bull mode this week with Bitcoin peaking at $69k. Since then, most coins retraced and Bitcoin consolidates now around the $64k level. This drop spurred panic in some inexperienced crypto traders. However, I think, we are far away from a bear market. Just have a look at CryptoCaptain’s sentiment which is 74% bullish today – a very high level for that measure.
$64k marked April’s all-time-high of Bitcoin, on which Bitcoin currently rests and seems to have found support. A possible further dip to $60k is nothing to worry about. Every bull run shows intermittent phases of consolidation. Most analysts (myself included) expect the best is yet to come in this bull market. I prefer to stay calm and hold onto my positions.
According to the stock-to-flow-cross-asset model, Bitcoin could reach $288k in this bull cycle. However, some market participants say that this narrative will be used by institutions to push prices for dumping on late-coming FOMO retailers.
When considering some altcoins like Polkadot (DOT) or Solana (SOL), the dip might have been deeper compared to Bitcoin. But that’s something fully expected.
In the meantime, Ethereum (ETH) shows a bit more strength than Bitcoin and resides at around $4600. An upcoming price target of $5000 seems viable pretty soon.
