Greenidge mined 729 bitcoins during the third quarter, compared to 246 bitcoins in the third quarter of the prior year and 315 bitcoins in the second quarter of 2021.

As of September 30, 2021, Greenidge had approximately 15,300 miners deployed on its site capable of producing an estimated aggregate hash rate capacity of 1.2 EH/s and had entered into additional commitments to acquire approximately 17,200 additional miners.

Since September 30, 2021, Greenidge ordered an additional 16,500 miners including Greenidge's participation as a launch customer for the recently announced ANTMINER S19 XP from Bitmain, which delivers 27% more efficiency than any technology currently available. With the full deployment of these new miners, Greenidge's total fleet is expected to comprise approximately 49,000 miners and is expected to achieve a total hash rate capacity of approximately 4.7 EH/s. Greenidge expects to be able to achieve a total hash rate capacity of at least 1.4 EH/s by the end of 2021.

In September 2021, Greenidge entered into an exclusive agreement with a developer for at least six sites in Texas with over 3,000MW of combined power generation capacity that Greenidge and the developer have identified as attractive locations for Greenidge data centers.

In October 2021, Greenidge announced that it had entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement for a site in Spartanburg, South Carolina, including a 750,000 square foot building and 175 acres of land. The transaction is expected to close in early December 2021. Greenidge intends to commence initial mining operations, using portable equipment, at the Spartanburg facility in December 2021.

Additionally, Greenidge has entered into an agreement giving it an exclusive right of first refusal to develop data centers at multiple power generation sites in Texas comprising over 1,000MW of power generation assets.

Greenidge intends to develop its next commercial bitcoin mining location at either the South Carolina location or one of the Texas locations and is evaluating certain factors to determine which state and location is best suited for development.
