This new order will achieve 28% of its goal to raise the company’s mining capacity, and it will enable the company to achieve its target of increasing the number of bitcoin miners to 5,000 by 2022. When fully installed and operational, JTS will be the center of the Bitcoin mining industry and have the largest mining capacity in Thailand
As for its business and investment plans, JTS aims to expand its mining capacity to 50,000 machines before the next Bitcoin Halving, which is expected to happen sometime in 2024. With this capacity JTS will not only be one of the largest Bitcoin miner in Thailand, but it will also be the center of the largest Bitcoin Mining Farm in Southeast Asia.
