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.

We do not operate out of Dell or have for sometime (Late 2014).  Thru this whole time we have owned and operated our own facility.  Dell was just overflow capacity.  Please change to reflect that.  Thanks!  We are in Douglas County, Washington USA.

I hadn't seen this posted here and I think it's a cool video.  It's a timelapse of one of Bitfury's big mines.

Wow this is awesome! Quality technology. Incredible. I know I dream but will be nice to get a liquid cooling system from Bitfury.  Grin

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.

A

Time spent on reconnaissance is seldom wasted.

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.

Always use escrow. OgNasty is pretty sweet.

Wowee, I haven't been following this thread for a while. You guys have made some good contributions, so I decided to do a bit myself.

I've added a couple of datacenters, reorganized the thread, and made some pretty visual changes.

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.

I found an interesting paper that is sort of relevant to Bitmain's huge datacenter.

Random speculation: Do you think that the KnC datacenters will shut down in the next few days because of the halving?
