United States-based Bitcoin mining company TeraWulf has fired up a new crypto mining facility in Pennsylvania — solely running on nuclear power generated on-site.

In Mar. 6 statement, TeraWulf said the Nautilus Cryptomine facility is its first “behind the meter” Bitcoin (BTC) mining facility, which refers to using energy directly at the generation site without traveling through the grid.

It's official...The first nuclear-powered mining facility in the U.S. is hashing!!! $WULF @BTCTN @keremkaradagcom @crypto @decryptmedia @benzingacrypto @BTC_ArchiveThe Nautilus Cryptomine directly sources carbon-free baseload power from the 2.5 gigawatt (GW) Susquehanna nuclear generation station on site.

Paul Prager, Chairman and CEO of TeraWulf claims the Nautilus mining facility now has "arguably the lowest cost power in the sector, just $0.02/kWh for a term of five years." The company also revealed they have now brought online nearly 8,000 mining rigs representing computing power, or hash rate, of 1.0 exahashes per second (EH/s), with plans for another 8,000 miners by May, increasing the hash rate to 1.9 EH/s.
