Core Scientific, one of the world's largest publicly traded mining companies, which provides about 10% of Bitcoin mining power with 143,000 mining machines, has filed for bankruptcy in the Southern District of Texas court.

According to the Core Scientific web page, there are four mining facilities in the US, two in Texas and one in South Dakota and Nebraska.

About 15% of Bitcoin produced in 2022 was produced by publicly traded companies. When we look at the chart below, we see that Core Scientific alone makes 4% of the global Bitcoin production.

You can access the month-by-month details of the company's Bitcoin production reports here.


Core Scientific sold 2,285 Bitcoins in October at an average of $19,639, and as of October, the company seems to have 62 Bitcoins left in their accounts.


The fact that one of the world's largest Bitcoin mining companies filed for bankruptcy in parallel with the bankruptcy process of FTX is, of course, negative news for the crypto market.

This bankruptcy news seems to have once again revealed the importance of renewable energy in order to save the energy costs of Bitcoin production facilities.


In the lean future, we will see the impact of this bankruptcy process on the market. Other mining companies may face the same process. However, it would be unreasonable to say that Bitcoin's mining is threatened with extinction. The government of El Savador announced that it would produce Bitcoin with the mining facility it established near the volcano. We may continue to hear such news in the future.
