The surge comes as the company announced new plans for global expansion, geographically diversifying its mining capabilities in a bid to gradually decrease production costs.

As earlier reported, Marathon is set to shift its focus from U.S.-based hosted facilities, plagued by high costs and energization delays, to more global partnerships.

As part of the new strategy, Marathon plans to deploy new facilities in Abu Dhabi and Paraguay to increase the company’s capacity by 30% in 2024.

In early November 2023, Marathon unveiled in its latest earnings report that its revenue in Q3 2023 soar to $97.8 million, mainly driven by an increase in Bitcoin production and higher crypto prices. Marathon CEO Fred Thiel emphasized that the company has taken “proactive measures” to strengthen its financial position during the quarter in preparation for next year’s Bitcoin halving.
