According to the February 22, 2024 release, Riot generated total revenue of $280.7 million, an increase from the previous year’s $259.2 million in 2022.

Once fully developed, it will be recognized as the largest dedicated facility for bitcoin mining in the world . In addition, Riot has outlined a partnership with MicroBT to provide the supply of latest-generation miners at a fixed price, increasing the efficiency of Riot’s mining operations.

Financial health

The company ended the year with a solid balance sheet, including approximately $597 million in cash and 7,362 bitcoins, valued at about $311 million based on year-end prices, with nominal long-term debt.
