Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARA), a trailblazer in digital asset technology, reported impressive results for the first quarter of 2024. The company experienced significant growth with revenues reaching $165.2 million, marking a 223% increase compared to the previous year’s $51 million.

The significant surge in earnings is directly related to a massive growth in hash rate, which experienced a 142% jump from last year, amounting to 27.8 exahashes per second (EH/s). This equates to approximately 28% of the overall Bitcoin mined by operators, totaling 2,811 coins. Our net income saw a remarkable rise of 184%, hitting $337.2 million, or $1.26 per share, marking a substantial enhancement of 140%. This growth can primarily be attributed to the Bitcoin price surge and our business expansion efforts.

During this quarter, Marathon unveiled several innovative offerings from their portfolio. Among them was Slipstream, a tool designed to enhance the speed of Bitcoin transactions, and the MARA UBC 2100 control board, which boosts Bitcoin mining efficiency. Strategic acquisitions have allowed Marathon to expand its mining capabilities, now operating at a capacity of 1.1 GW, accounting for approximately 54% of the total market share.
