According to the company, the losses were due to a 44% drop in Bitcoin mining due to a delay in connecting the Compute North facility in Texas to the power grid and damage to a power plant feeding a data center in Montana due to a hurricane, a decline in the price of Bitcoin, the revaluation of crypto reserves as well as rising costs for the accelerated relocation of miners from a facility in Hardin, Montana.

At the end of the quarter, the company had $86.5 million on its balance sheet.
