Core Scientific, a Texas-founded mining company, has revealed its return on Nasdaq due to restructuring efforts implemented after its insolvency filings in 2022.

According to Core Scientific, its strategy might also curtail its debt via the conversion of the outstanding convertible debt and by investors exercising appliable warrants. Besides, the debt reduction can happen via the utilization of available cash.
In a press release, Adam Sullivan, Core Scientific’s CEO, revealed they intend to implement their realistic growth strategy and continue getting ready for the imminent halving. Additionally, they plan to establish value by converting energy into high-value energy to run Bitcoin mining and other possible applications.
Core Scientific intends to boost the overall mining capacity by more than 50% over the next four years as it plans to deploy new Bitcoin miners. Currently, the company runs mining facilities with a power capacity of 724 megawatts across five states in the United States.
