This is an index of publicly known industrial-scale mining operations across the globe.


Disclaimers:
Because I want to list as many things as possible, this thread has a low standard of proof. Some of the operators listed below may be unethical, scammy, nonexistent, or have rituals where they sacrifice innocent children--I don't care about that, I just want to make a list.

Note that there are likely many (secret) mines that aren't listed here.
Check out this thread instead if you're looking to host hardware.

Operational Mines:
60MW | BW/ANTPOOL | Unnamed | Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
Note: Power draw is an estimate based off their claim of 100PH, I assumed 0.6W/GH given that this was Feb 2015. Any of you guys have information about this one?
Here's an interesting paper that explains perhaps why this large datacenter is in this region.

25MW | Lee Group | Unnamed | Chengdu City, Sichuan province, China
Note: It was stated they their farm was expandable to 25MW about a year ago, so it's likely they are around the high end of that range by now.

Is Sweden like near Antarctica or something?  Tongue

But awesome list. Crazy to see how many farms there are using that much power.

Since the OP I've dug up two more mines: Cryptominer Canada run by maximeAD and the Lee Group datacenter. I was considering adding genesis-mining but they provide no specs on their datacenter.

10MW | KnC | Unnamed | Sweden

Yeah, but when you get down to it 128MW are owned by one entity--which also happens to be the entity that claims to have the most efficient chips. That's kinda scary!

What percentage of the overall MW do you think is with home/retail miners ?

Very little. Most hobbyist miners colocate now unless they can score power for less than $0.06/USD/kwh, otherwise they save money by letting other people take care of their hardware for them. I'd say (and this is a total guess) at most 3MW are being run in homes/businesses. Everything else is probably in datacenters.

I find it very scary aswell they seem to be only one pumping out next gen and if they have specs that were reported they are making a killing.  Also they chances will ROI on a lot of machines before other companies even get next gen chips.   So when they have ROI'ed and rest is pure profit... that is really scary as what do they do?

My fear is they sell tons of BTC and drag down price.     I hope that does not happen though.

it would be nice to have some info, on the maximum megawatt that their location can handle, so they will be forced in the end to split in two or more location

which means better decentralization

I'm pretty sure that MegaBigPower's mine has grown quite a bit, or they've added additional facilities.

 I believe Zoomhash also has a biggish mine in the same area, given they're shipping the used A2 units they have for sale out of there. No clue on size though.

If it's still owned by the same group of people it's not decentralized.

I'm pretty sure that MegaBigPower's mine has grown quite a bit, or they've added additional facilities.
Turns out that MBP and hashplex share space in this datacenter:
http://www.newsbtc.com/2014/05/30/data-centers-join-bitcoin-train/
http://www.serverfarmrealty.com/data-centers/titan/

Assuming 60% is used for hosted mining hardware, and the rest is used for other clients--4MW. It seems to line up with this next article I found which is the motherlode:
http://www.datacenterknowledge.com/archives/2014/11/05/bitcoin-clusters-emerge-in-cloud-computings-footprints/

It reveals that MBP was building a 23MW center and was eyeing another location with 12MW capacity. Another (unlisted so far) NA based hosting company in that article that has 4.5MW of capacity.
I believe Zoomhash also has a biggish mine in the same area, given they're shipping the used A2 units they have for sale out of there. No clue on size though.

Good one!
http://zoomhash.com/pages/hosting

That's another 3MW accounted for.

I'm off to sleep but I'll be updating the OP tomorrow.

KNC are a reasonably open company about their mine rollout plans.  Another 20 MW rollout.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/3014471/bitcoin-miner-knc-is-planning-another-four-week-datacenter-build-out.html

Also recent Sam Cole interview talking in detail about mining and KNCs search for cheap mining locations.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDnA6i6oEvA

Washington State has a stack of miners to the extent it is impacting the cheap electricity.

http://www.govtech.com/dc/articles/High-Capacity-Data-Centers-Blindsided-by-Increase-in-Utilities-Charges.html

And who knows what is in China.  Bitfury are likely to be mining on their 16nm chip as fast as they can get them.

Just a comment.  A nominal X Megwatt Bitcoin Data Centre is only likely to run at the most 60% of capacity for actual mining. There are overheads (cooling etc) and electrical systems and transformers are normally kept at under 80% of capacity.

Big update!

I've added quite a few more datacenters, I've almost doubled the total "accounted for" MW since the OP. How many MW do you all think the network uses in total? It could help me with my pie charts.

Great! My company is there Smiley. I have to try going up in the list!

Do you have a name for your datacenters?

Cryptoboreas is too small too be listed IIRC, it looks like they have 150KW of capacity.

At the Princeton course about Bitcoin & Blockchain Technologies, a whole lecture was given on the bitcoin network energy consumption, so I thought you guys would be interested in some of the methodology used to assert Bitcoin´s power consumption:

*Using Landauer principle, that says that any non-reversible computation must consume a minimum amount of energy (Kt in 2) Joules---SHA256 is a non-reversible form of computation---Energy consumption is inevitable, we did input the embodied energy (used to make the hardware, and decrease over time), plus cooling energy (costs more/less with an increased scale), and the electrical energy (increase over time).

Using that information, plus an average industrial electricity value, gave us:
UPPER BOUND: 900 MW TOTAL ENERGY CONSUMPTION (all $ is used to pay for electricity, all pay the same for electricity)
LOWER BOUND: 150MW (everyone mines at maximum efficiency).

Then we used this as comparison:

How much is a MW?

Three Gorges Dam: generates 10,000MW

Typical Coal fired plant: 2,000MW
Typical power plant: 4,000MW

It takes less than what a typical power plant generates to run the entire Bitcoin network. Plus, ALL payment systems requiere energy by design.

I'm not sure what was presented in the course or if you understood it correctly, however, while SHA256 is not a reversible algorithm, the process of attempting to mine a block is almost entirely reversible.  One can do an entire computation until one succeeds, copy out the nonce (and extra nonce), and then reverse the entire computation.  The only energy required is that required to copy out the answer. Of course, today there is no efficient implementation of the necessary reversible logic, but there are no principles of physics that require bitcoin mining to consume energy. That's a problem of technology and engineering, not physics.

Three Gorges Dam: generates 10,000MW


 There are appx. 10 major power dams on the Columbia river in Washington State, at about 2500MW EACH.
 IIRC Grant County PUC has one, the others are more-or-less evenly split between Chelan and Douglas county PUCs.


 I am pretty sure this makes the Tenessee Valley Authority total output look puny....


 Coal power plants vary a lot - local power company is building a 600MW unit, anticipating it comming online in 2017.

 Natural gas power plants vary a lot - older ones tend to be smaller - but some of the newer ones can pull ballpark 100MW per turbine.
 They're also getting common in areas that have good access to natural gas, due to environmental concerns and low cost.

Additionally, Chinese miners can get cheap electricity because....the state-owned power transportation network prefers to purchase electricity only from state-owned power plants, leaving some private-owned power plants with no one to sell their power to, but the miners.

What this implies is that much of the Bitcoin network runs on redundant power output(in fact no miner these days can break-even without some cheaper than usual electricity), which has no better use, using it to secure a very important and innovative payment network is by no means a waste.

Those are public mining pools, AFAIK the owners don't run any mining hardware.

BW/Antpool are listed because they have large datacenters that they use for mining in addition to operating a pool.

We have acquired a few thousands Avalon 6 and Antminer S7. The old S3 were mostly sold. Though we are currently running around 13PH, it is mainly due to seasonal power supply restrictions. We expect the hash rate to rise to 30 to 50 PH by mid-2016.

Also surely F2Pool is way to big to just be a Public Mining Pool, must be someone's data centre?

Those are public mining pools, AFAIK the owners don't run any mining hardware.

BW/Antpool are listed because they have large datacenters that they use for mining in addition to operating a pool.

BTCC has it own mining farms, it is also a very big farm.

Also surely F2Pool is way to big to just be a Public Mining Pool, must be someone's data centre?


Rich

     They offer steady payouts  this is a huge reason people use them.

 Think like an accountant  not like a geek.---------- Sounds nasty not meant to be nasty. But if you are business oriented you mine here.

 I have a limited 2 cent power deal with a friend he is a banker not a geek.

 He insists that this 1 s-7 is to be pointed at you guessed it f2pool.

If  you back a person with cash you don't want variance. As much as I don't like some of f2pool's methods the steady daily payout  has a lot of meaning.

I was not questioning why people use F2Pool. In fact my standard setup is first Nicehash with a setting some % above normal PPS payout levels, then BW.com as they have 1% fees & finally F2Pool...

My surprise was that F2Pool could be as big as it is and only be a Public Mining Pool with Ad Hoc users?

It can  because a banker type guy  will point from the State of Washington.  He looks at it as a ledger game for profit.

The guy I know can drop 1 or 2 million into btc as a hedge to his real estate, stock and bond investments.

He has been picking my brain to understand the entire game along with watching and allowing the stat of the art miner (s-7) run in his office.

He is methodical and is most likely going to pass or pull the trigger this spring.  He has connections to a few guys in the state of Washington

and if they go forth and build a mine  they will point it at f2pool.  Basically it gets rid of variance.  

I am helping him to decide if he will do this.

So if they get a building and 3 cent power  put in 3 or 4 million  they could get.

2000 s-7's  at 4.7th each or 9.4ph.

This would make them second at f2pool.



Here are the top  payouts from f2pool last night. They paid 777 coins last night.

The biggest payout is below as are all payouts between 2 and 45 coins

Very intersting data philipma I don't think I have seen this before.  There are less then I was expecting.

Are you able to do the same with antpool?   Could we see how big operations are within it?

To the guy who said BTCC has its own farms: Please give me a source! I want to list as many people as possible.

Hundred bucks says that it's HAOBTC, because they're located in China and have almost that exact hashrate.

BIG UPDATE:
-Removed bitfury's 100MW datacenter. It doesn't exist, it's the same DC as the 40MW one. If you look here their 100MW datacenter is only quoted as "up to" 100MW, they had a seriously misleading press release. Also, the 40MW and 100MW datacenter are located in the exact same technology park. Plus, they are never both mentioned in the same press release, kind of like superman and clark kent.
http://agenda.ge/news/43030/eng

-Removed bitfury's 8.5MW datacenter. It's actually owned and operated by Advania (datacenter company), and I can't tell how much is used for miner hosting. Maybe bitfury uses it, but right now I don't have a source for it.
http://stundin.is/frett/vafasamar-tengingar-staersta-gagnavers-landsins/

-Downgraded bitfury's 20MW datacenter to 10MW. Another misleading press release, if you see this news report (and translate it), you can see that they only pay for 9.9MW of power from the power company. If anyone has a conflicting (non-bitfury) source please help me out.
https://translate.google.ca/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fnetgazeti.ge%2F2015%2F08%2F06%2F48634%2F&edit-text=&act=url

Actually, that article has tons of juicy info about bitfury. Namely, it appears they've spun down their icelandic mining operations (part of the reason for removing it), and their datacenter plan in finland failed. I suspect both of these have to do with electricity rates impacting the bottom line, but that's just my opinion. Apparently they pay $0.01c/kwh in Georgia when converted to USD, which is impressive (not 100% sure on this one, the article doesn't specify whether the rate is in USD or GEL).

Well, after the dust settled it looks like I was seriously underrepresenting the USA/China market share.
Anyways, that's all for me.

Interesting to see one thing I can think of they might want some empty spots for their new chip once a full miner is ready.    So if they do have space right no its good short term... but long term I would guess once new miner comes out it goes right into empty spots.

Also I could see them trying to unload some of the older miners to make space for the new ones.  But we still don't know how long till they are pumping them out.

We have acquired a few thousands Avalon 6 and Antminer S7. The old S3 were mostly sold. Though we are currently running around 13PH, it is mainly due to seasonal power supply restrictions. We expect the hash rate to rise to 30 to 50 PH by mid-2016.

Does it include the future Bitmain 16 nm chip based miners or just the more A6 or S7?

I really don't think so, it's not cost effective for HAOBTC to spend extra money on more efficient hardware--their electricity costs are very low.

We have been phasing out old machines - the S3s that appeared in the pictures I took and posted on this forum were all sold. As a bulk buyer we can afford to pay a significant amount in advance, as a result, we are often be able to receive new machines from the manufacturers earlier than the market and at lower prices. Quite often we find that we can make a nice chunk of money not doing actually mining but just reselling the machines we just get.

Thanks for answering all these questions.
Out of curiosity, how many MW of capacity do you have?

I just wanted to say thanks for the great job armedmilitia!

So i wanted to get more 'into' the hole mining thing. So just wanted to write down my thought (please tell me if im wrong)

1. Don't buy used hardware from ebay or w.e.
2. Buy new hardware, which has the best kw/power ratio.
3. Buy the hardware from someone, who also can host it.
4. Don't lease urself an miner. It just doen't give any return.
5. Maybe buy a contract - if lucky it can payout

-- if u mind having my post here, i can remove and post in the mining forum --

Any other suggestions for the beginners list?

Edit: One question, is it better to self say which pool you want, or just let the "hosting company" decide?

This is probably the wrong section for this.
1.) Ebay is terrible, I agree.
2.) Not necessarily, it depends on your power cost and the cost of the miner
3.) Buying directly from a hoster is nice (you don't need to pay for shipping) but it's not necessary.
4.) I don't think you can lease miners anyways.
5.) Contracts suck! You'll lose in the long run.

One I did not see on list is BlockC.  They report having 10 MW datacenter - http://www.blockc.co/ .  They are the distributor of Avalon gear outside of China.  So it is likely they have a sizable amount.

Might add them to list, I did not find them.  But I could have missed it.

10MW are ~34PH on Avalon's.

10MW | KnC | Unnamed | Sweden
Note: Does anyone know where in Sweden this is?
Is Sweden like near Antarctica or something?  Tongue

But awesome list. Crazy to see how many farms there are using that much power.

KNC is located in The Node Pole which is a collection of business industrial real estate which is open to development. Obviously they have attractive offerings for people opening up shop there.

The KNC Boden datacenters are right next to each other neighboring the old Helicopter Air Base.

http://thenodepole.com/data-center-sites/helicopter-air-base/

They have hyrdro and local biogas power production and in addition are well connected to their national electric grid.

http://thenodepole.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/hydro-960x485-900x455.png

If I recall the first KNC site was 10MW and the second was going to be 20MW .. or was that 20MW total and an additional 10MW ... I'm not 100% sure, I would have to scour the media releases.

This is also home to Hydro66

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=765407.0

http://thenodepole.com/data-center-sites/hydro66/

"Hydro66, a data centre provider financed by Black Green Capital"

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/oct/22/cloud-storage-data-centre-sweden-arctic-hydro66

"Hydro 66’s anchor tenant in their first facility is a Bitcoin operation called MegaMine, which has the same equity backers and management as Hydro66."

http://www.datacenterknowledge.com/archives/2014/10/23/hydro66-kicks-off-sweden-data-center-construction-in-facebooks-neighborhood/

MegaMine is apparently these dudes;

http://www.megamine.com/aboutus.php

The pic on that page of their datacenter is clearly not their datacenter and is a pic from a facebook datacenter. Which is ironic because Facebook also actually has a datacenter in the area. Same reference as above.

There are a few missing ones I think;


LordPaco has a 1 MW mine according to, could be 4-5MW now according to reference below;

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1159107.msg12266632#msg12266632

Also pictures from page 40 in "Miner photo 'porn'"

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=766998.msg12220928#msg12220928

It's stated that the goal is to being 4 MW online by the end of the year. The post is from 08/23/2015.

Quite recently ASICSPACE had a some sort of "parting ways" with their original datacenter operated by, and they moved their remaining customers to Quincy, WA and into LordPaco's space;

"ASICSpace Mining Co. v. Salcido Connection Inc."

http://wbjtoday.com/main.asp?SectionID=2&subsectionID=62&articleID=3627

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=885197.msg13190964#msg13190964

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1328951.msg13560711#msg13560711

That means Salcido Connection Inc. is now going to operate their own datacenter with the capacity previously allocated to ASICSPACE.

http://ncwbusiness.com/main.asp?SectionID=2&SubSectionID=45&ArticleID=3742&TM=57112.81

I find it interesting that he contests the stigma around bitcoin not creating jobs.

"The metric we need to get out there is this is way more jobs per megawatt than manufacturing," he said. "Alcoa used 250 megawatts for 450 jobs. I'm creating more than 50 family wage jobs on 4 megawatts. And there's a ton of direct and indirect economic spinoff from that. Data space and emerging technology draws all kinds of spin off support industries, the kind you can imagine and those you can't imagine."

However everyone in the Chelan area is running into potential problems securing power pricing;

http://kuow.org/post/virtual-currency-meets-wariness-it-plugs-cheap-columbia-river-power

"High Density Load Forum with Chelan County PUD and Salcido Connection Wenatchee WA"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUPLp_AVIWY

seek to 4:50

At 11:50 he mentions "We have two facilities, we have a 2MW at the old Tree Top plant in Cashmere, WA and we have another 1.7MW in south Wenatchee that we call Columbia Data."

The second location might be at this site on Columbia St.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/GO+USA,+Inc/@47.4179256,-120.3044442,3a,75y,328.03h,90.39t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sFUoUHGOzUZCiJu2zxRvYYg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x3d6360bf7572beb0!6m1!1e1

Notice the power going to the upper floor of the building on the left, looks like 1MW of 3 phase. Then there is another 750 kVA transformer on the street to the right. In short, plenty of power on this street to get 1.7MW.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/GO+USA,+Inc/@47.418386,-120.3036617,299m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x3d6360bf7572beb0!6m1!1e1

The aerial view shows that Columbia St is adjacent to this substation and there are visibly existing overhead lines carrying that power over to Chehalis St and then to Columba St. Pretty ideal short runs!
Also in this meeting is "Dedicated ASIC Services" ... anyone know who that is?

Plus there is also .. OregonMines which I read had 500 kVA in one location and another 1 MW in a different location in the same area. I can not seem to find a reference for that.

One we don't really know on is some old spot's PCFLI ran miners in:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=514758.0


I know all of his current group buys go into a really nice center.  But these old "simple" ones I would guess someone else if not him is using.  Can't imagine building farms and then leaving them.   This is just a example I figure there are a few players with "simple' data centers that are pretty hard to track.  And this is all speculation I have no idea who owns the simple ones now.

Hash the Planet

http://hashthepla.net/#section-pricing

Located at a property owned by Jay Byers, owner of the 106,000-square-foot Mission District building in Cashmere who has been leasing 13,000-square feet of space to a server farm business for the past 18 months.

https://www.chelanpud.org/docs/default-source/commission/forum-lets-high-density-power-users-share-their-side-of-the-story---leavenworth-echo-jan-27-2016.pdf?sfvrsn=0

It does not mention the total capacity but it does mention the total investment of $800k going on $1M, so I would assume no less than 1 MW and probably no more than 2 MW.

http://hashthepla.net/gallery/#!

Looks like they are selling on eBay right now ...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281899529175

The listing says "We have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds". So I would assume no less than 300 and probably no more than maybe 1000. Assuming this isn't the only equipment the power need of 180 kW - 600 kW. Since that lines up with the original projection above I would assume it's a 1 MW datacenter. However spending $800k - $1 M on the setup in the picture of the Hash the Planet pics leads me to think they have a lot more power they aren't using.

In the above Chelan PUD document the building owner Jim Byers mentions ""I made the agreement with these guys that I would build the server system and in two years they will buy it for $3 million more than he put into it. So far, I'm $800,000 into this thing and will be $1 million into it before its done. I own the server system and they run the computers," he said. "They told me if the rate goes up, they will just move. I will lose $4 million if you do this."

So it sounds like he bought a bunch of miners. Man .. what did S5's go for ... $340-$420 ... If you spent $1 million on build out and another $3 million on S5's that would get you approximately 7000 S5's and psu's .... That would use 590 watts x 7000 miners = 4.1 MW. Which is still within the 5 MW Chelan PUD limit for subsidized power rates.

Although in that "High Density Load Forum with Chelan County PUD and Salcido Connection Wenatchee WA" video I posted earlier which is from just a couple days ago. It is stated several times the "actual amount of power being used currently in Chelan PUD is just over 5 MW" and that perhaps there "were" previously failed endeavors accounting for several other MW that may no longer be utilized for mining.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUPLp_AVIWY"

So if you take that as absolute truth then the following operations cannot account for more than "just over 5 MW" of active capacity. Malachi claims he is using 3.7MW of that figure leaving 1.3 - 1.6MW to account for the other two.

Dedicated ASIC Services - Michael Cao / Cashmere, could be ZoomHash who claims to have 3MW http://zoomhash.com/pages/hosting
Salcido Connection - Malachi Salcido / Cashmere, South Wenatchee
Hash the Planet - Sean Cooper / Cashmere

Oh ... cool I just confirmed the location of the second Salcido connection site.

"At last Wednesday's forum Salcido Connection owner Malachi Salcido, who has equipped much of the former Tree Top facility in Cashmere as a low tier no tier data center and is working on a second facility in the Go USA building in Wenatchee"

http://cashmerevalleyrecord.com/print.asp?ArticleID=9072&SectionID=5&SubSectionID=5

So that confirms it is the building on the right.

https://www.google.com/maps/place/GO+USA,+Inc/@47.4179256,-120.3044442,3a,75y,328.03h,90.39t/data=

Genesis Mining claims it started in Bosnia running GPU's then setup in China running scrypt and then finally ended up setting up several datacenters in Iceland mining bitcoin and X11.

https://vimeo.com/136927293

I'm not sure how much power they have in total and I don't know how many sites in Iceland. However we can conclude since we only are talking about bitcoin and that just from what is shown in the video. I can count 16 sections on the bottom and another 6 on top, each containing 9 x SP30/SP35 machines using at least 3kW to 3.5 kW of power each. So thats between 594 kW and 693 kW at least.

Here are some more pics I found of their facility

http://www.datacenterdynamics.com/design-build/bitcoin-miner-runs-the-ultimate-shoestring-facility/94764.fullarticle

Well after reading that article it claims that Genesis is currently using 1.2 MW. Also noted in the article is that BitFury's Iceland datacenter was apparently actually built by Advania. As previously discussed in the forum that BitFury has vacated this space. It appears that Advania now is offering this space to interested mining parties for 75 euro/kW-month.

https://www.advania.com/cloud/data-center-it-services/#bitcoin-colocation

They call it the Mjölnir Data Center and list the location here;

https://www.google.is/maps/place/Hafnavegur,+Hafnir/@63.9331794,-22.6711592,16.5z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x4929fd06e84f0793:0x6c01580688cd513f?hl=en

Apparently google maps imaging is out dated. BitFury had posted a video of this sites construction;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvGtrflL8zA

You'll also notice ... this well known image from that video;

https://news.bitcoin.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/bitfury-coop-view1.jpg

Is the blurred backdrop image on Advania's page;

https://www.advania.com/cloud

Apparently there are 3 of these buildings each supporting 2 MW or more for a total of perhaps 6 MW.

http://cdn.ttgtmedia.com/rms/onlineImages/sdc_iceland_04.jpg

Additionally it does appear BitFury has a second datacenter in Georgia;

http://cbw.ge/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/10525004_1154234711273103_253096434_n.jpg

Which is certainly different from their first one which was stated to be 20 MW.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3xRNmtpy6s

The new datacenter is stated to be 40 MW.

http://cbw.ge/business/pm-unveils-datacenter-with-innovative-energy-efficient-cooling-system/

And is stated to be utilizing their immersion cooling technology on both previous 28nm and latest 16nm chips.

"BitFury mega processing datacenter is equipped by the most advanced 28 and 16 nanometer chips."


Also don't forget Bitcoin Club Network which not much before January had less than 5 petahash is also in Iceland and lately has been showing up at around 20 petahash. Which means even with they have to be 5 - 10 MW.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eId68Y9fsYA

They are clearly building this out right now.

This pic looks to be an older facility as it looks like all S2's or S4's and the page this image comes from talks about their new Iceland facillity back in July.

Truly amazing thanks for sharing.  Dang the scale of it is pretty impressive you watch that building being built... it shows what a mega mining center is for sure.   I wish they would have told timeline though.  Like day 1.. and how long that took to do so much work.

Very cool video though.

I'm wondering why it's on some random youtube account and not on Bitfury's page.  I'd love to see more shots of the inside of the building and the control panels for the tanks.

If I recall the first KNC site was 10MW and the second was going to be 20MW .. or was that 20MW total and an additional 10MW ... I'm not 100% sure, I would have to scour the media releases.

This is also home to Hydro66



Nice job on that update Sunbreak.  And nice job on the whole list armedmilitia.

Yes the KNC first site was a total of 30MW and the second is the same again.  The local
energy co. has built a 120MW upgradeable to 200MW substation nearby.

Zoomhash's mining/hosting operation somewhere in the Wenatchee area probably can account for enough usage to get to that 5MW figure.

This is super duper out of date. KnC filed for bankruptcy so it's possible they've shuttered a datacenter or two.

Is zoomhash still in business? Their prices look... dated.

Zoomhash is still around, they were clearing out A2 units in large quantities the last few months obviously clearing space and capasity for the A4.

Hasn't exactly been a lot of NEW miners for them to post the last 6 months after all.

Disclaimers:
  • This is an attempt to index every (big) mining datacenter with low standards for proof. Check out this thread instead if you're looking to host hardware: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=622998.0
  • There is absolutely zero guarantee that any of this is correct. A lot of this is napkin math. In a few cases I was forced to "guess" a facility's power draw based off of what little information was given. Most is sourced, but these sources may be out of date or outright lies.
  • See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1328580.msg13587196#msg13587196 for juicy gossip on misleading press releases.

- Better numbers on Great North Data, Hashplex, and Lee Group.
- Specs on MegaBigPower's Polish datacenter. It appears it has been sold, actually. Not sure about this one.
- SFARDS, Avalon, and LK definitely operate their own hardware. How much, and where?


If you host 300KW or more of hardware, or know someone who does, feel free to post here! I could use some help.

Can you please update HaoBTC entry to 25 MW and 72 PH respectively?

It appears KNC's LTC miners were shut off again. So, it is a definite possibility. That being said, where they are only 3.5% of the bitcoin network it may be tough to discern.

That is an interesting list. It really shows how much change there has been in data centers. On the list MBP is still around only 3 MW. Block C and zoom hash are out of business. As well as so many others. The real story is the consolidation to China. It will be interesting to see if any data centers can compete with the chinese models. It doesn't hurt that they also have the only manufacturers currently selling hardware.

I know there's still a lot of mining in WA and a decent amount in Labrador. Labrador power rates are unbeatable!

I had no idea Block C went out of business, but it looks like their website is dead so I guess you're right! Poor guys, the guy I talked to who worked there was real nice. Sad
Do you have any sources on zoomhash, though? Website is still up and they offer hosting services. They don't seem dead... yet.

Well, China has the only manufacturers currently selling hardware to the public. Bitfury's playing the long game, I'm sure.

Always use escrow. OgNasty is pretty sweet.

We've cracked your top ten - presuming the KNC mines are out of business. Our new Lab City site is 6MW. We've just been calling our facilities Lab City and Goose Bay.

Listed!

We've cracked your top ten - presuming the KNC mines are out of business. Our new Lab City site is 6MW. We've just been calling our facilities Lab City and Goose Bay.

I'm pretty sure KnC's mines are gathering dust by now. I checked the blockchain.info hashrate distribution: Nothing. Organofcorti hasn't mentioned KnC recently, either. I've moved them to the dead column.

Congratulations on your expansion. Listed!

One megawatt farm under construction. To launch soon together with website - SinoHash.com.

Let me know when it's done, and I'll list it!

A couple of big changes:

  • I've removed MegaBigPower's 32MW and 12MW datacenters. They never materialized--according to their own website they only have 4MW in WA.
  • I've added Vern Global in Iceland (they rent space to various mining groups).
  • I've added Telco 214 in Labrador.

Verne Global:
Verne Global has a huge complex in Kevlavik, Iceland. However, not all of their capacity is used for bitcoin mining--they have some "traditional" datacenter customers too. It's easy to estimate how much is used for mining though, because they launched a new product called Transmission+. Transmission+ is very low cost hosting with very little redundancy. That sort of product is terrible for everyone except for bitcoin miners, because miners would rather have 98% uptime and half the power cost, while typical web services would not tolerate any downtime for any discount. Luckily enough, Vern Global mentioned in an interview that they have more than 5 megawatts of customer capacity using its Transmission+ product! I think their largest customer is Genesis Mining.

Because of that wonderful nugget of news, we can put them at 5 megawatts.

Telco 214/North 53:
Telco 214 is especially noteworthy. I got a tip-off that there was another mine in Labrador, and got to work doing my internet detective thing. The only mines I knew about in Labrador were Great North Data and CryptoBoreas (operated by allinvain), so this was especially interesting to me.

First off, a CBC article (screenshot) mentions this company called North 53 degrees. If you zoom in on the image in the article, you can see North 53 Degrees written on that permit granted sign.

Who owns North 53, and how big is it?

First, let's tackle the question of ownership: Using domaintools, I got some promising results! There is a n35d.com domain, with the title North 53 Degrees Inc, whose ip traces to a Florida-based networking company called Telco 214 (screenshot). What's so special about Telco 214? They're an alias for a very big solo miner! It seems likely, then, that Telco 214 is operating the mine in Labrador.

Second, let's tackle the question of size: Between the 13th and 27th, this miner manager to find an average of 1.5 blocks per day. 144 blocks are found every day in the bitcoin world, so that makes this miner a hair over 1% of the network. That works out to roughly 22PH/s, so 4MW seems like a decent guess.

We have all of our hosting done in WA state with these guys. http://www.salcidoenterprises.tech/

I know they have at least four data centers and the one we have gear in is over 2MW.

Disclaimers:
  • This is an attempt to index every (big) mining datacenter with low standards for proof. Check out this thread instead if you're looking to host hardware: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=622998.0
  • There is absolutely zero guarantee that any of this is correct. A lot of this is napkin math. In a few cases I was forced to "guess" a facility's power draw based off of what little information was given. Most is sourced, but these sources may be out of date or outright lies.
  • See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1328580.msg13587196#msg13587196 for juicy gossip on misleading press releases.


TL;DR: Hashrate is concentrated in China, Georgia, the Western US, and Sweden (but not for long). Canada also has a few significant mines.

Operational Mines:
60MW | BW/ANTPOOL | Unnamed | Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
Note: Power draw is an estimate based off their claim of 100PH, I assumed 0.6W/GH given that this was Feb 2015. Any of you guys have information about this one?
Here's an interesting paper that explains perhaps why this large datacenter is in this region.

Information I desperately need:

- Better numbers on the BW/Bitmain datacenter. Can anyone read chinese? This might give us a clue: http://qntra.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/26022015weibo.png
- Better numbers on Great North Data, Hashplex, and Lee Group.
- Specs on MegaBigPower's Polish datacenter. It appears it has been sold, actually. Not sure about this one.
- SFARDS, Avalon, and LK definitely operate their own hardware. How much, and where?


If you host 300KW or more of hardware, or know someone who does, feel free to post here! I could use some help.

Can you please update HaoBTC entry to 25 MW and 72 PH respectively?



I am looking to buy a mine 1MW and up let me know if you guys can do a intro. Will give finders fee pending a successful deal.

Thanks - simon83trading@gmail.com

 Toomin brothers is in Grant County, Washington.
 I'll leave it to them to be more precise if they choose to be - I've seen their building but not had any chance to try for a "visit" to date.

 (edit - visited this week, but they understandably were not interested in offering a tour to someone that wasn't hosting with them).

 Zoomhash is starting to look like they may have shut down all operations - the last commmunication I got from them indicated that the owner hadn't decided yet, but that was months ago and ALL of their web addresses are now offline.

 MegaBigPower has mutated into GigaWatt - I don't know if they still have their older mine(s) in operation.

 Anyone else notice that the Saicidoenterprices office address is at the same address (though possibly different building) as MinerWarez?

That is Salcidos main warehouse/headquarters where they hold all of their HVAC stuff so I would say 100% its the same company.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

This is an index of publicly known industrial-scale mining operations across the globe.


Disclaimers:
Because I want to list as many things as possible, this thread has a low standard of proof. Some of the operators listed below may be unethical, scammy, nonexistent, or have rituals where they sacrifice innocent children--I don't care about that, I just want to make a list.

Note that there are likely many (secret) mines that aren't listed here.
