view original post

Marathon Digital Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:MARA) shares are trading higher Wednesday amid strength in cryptocurrencies, led by Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) and Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH).

The crypto market has been trending lower in recent weeks amid a selloff in broader risk assets, but crypto bounced off the lows last week and has since staged a recovery. Bitcoin has traded higher by nearly 20% over the last week, while Ethereum has surged by more than 48%.

Marathon on Monday announced that it has secured approximately 254 megawatts of new hosting arrangements for its Bitcoin mining operations from a variety of hosting providers.

As a result, the company said it believes it has secured enough hosting arrangements to support the company’s previously stated goal of approximately 23.3 exahashes per second of computing power for Bitcoin mining.
