March and Q1 Operational Update

 

Argo Blockchain, a global leader in cryptocurrency mining (LSE: ARB), is pleased to provide the following operational update for March.

 

During the month of March, Argo mined 165 Bitcoin or Bitcoin Equivalent (together, "BTC") compared to 129 BTC in February. This takes the total amount of BTC mined in Q1 to 387 BTC.  

 

Based on daily foreign exchange rates and cryptocurrency prices during the month, mining revenue in March amounted to £6.57 million (February 2021: £4.34 million). Argo generated this income at an average monthly mining margin of approximately 84% for the month of March (February 2021: 81%). This takes Argo's mining revenues to £13.4 million for the first quarter of 2021, the Company's most profitable quarter to date. This income has been generated at an average mining margin of approximately 80% for Q1 2021.

 

At the end of March, the company held 764 BTC.

 

Peter Wall, Chief Executive of Argo said: "I'm delighted that Argo has generated record mining revenue and profits for the third month in a row, making this quarter Argo's best performing since the Company's inception. These numbers are incredible, and they highlight our continued commitment to smart growth, efficiency, and delivering meaningful value to our shareholders. I am also thrilled that we are working with DMG to achieve something we believe will be truly transformational in the crypto space in the creation of Terra Pool, the first Bitcoin mining pool that will be powered by clean energy."
