19% Bitcoin Output Growth, 6,626 BTC Mined

Riot Platforms’ total revenue soared to $281 million in 2023, marking a significant all-time high.
Bitcoin mining output increased by 19%, producing 6,626 Bitcoins.
Despite operational success, Riot recorded a net loss of $(49.5) million, narrowing significantly from the previous year’s $(509.6) million.

Riot Platforms, a leading Bitcoin (BTC) mining firm, announced an exceptional fiscal year 2023. CEO Jason Les highlighted the company’s significant achievements, including record-high total revenues of $281 million. This milestone benefited from a 19% increase in Bitcoin production, reaching 6,626 Bitcoins, showcasing Riot’s enhanced efficiency and capacity in cryptocurrency mining.

Riot’s Efficiency: $189M from Mining, $71.2M in Credits

The financial breakdown for 2023 showed diverse revenue streams: $189 million from Bitcoin mining, $27.3 million from Data Center Hosting, and $64.3 million from Engineering. Notably, Bitcoin mining revenue exceeded mining costs by nearly 49%, demonstrating Riot’s operational efficiency. However, expansions at the Rockdale Facility led to increased costs, including a significant rise in Data Center Hosting costs. This was primarily due to direct power expenses and overheads like compensation and rent. Despite these challenges, Riot mitigated some financial pressures through strategic long-term power agreements, securing $71.2 million in power credits, significantly benefiting the company’s financial health.

Net Loss Narrows to $49.5M, Strategic Litigation

Riot’s revenue and Bitcoin production saw substantial growth. However, the company recorded a net loss of $49.5 million in 2023. This was an improvement from the previous year’s $509.6 million loss. This loss accounted for substantial non-cash expenses, including stock-based compensation and depreciation. Strategically, Riot joined the Texas Blockchain Council in litigation against the US Energy Information Administration, reflecting its proactive approach to regulatory challenges.

Riot Platforms’ performance in 2023 highlights its financial achievements and strategic positioning amid operational and regulatory challenges. With diversified revenue streams, strategic acquisitions of power credits, and proactive industry engagement, Riot is navigating the complexities of the Bitcoin mining industry with notable resilience and foresight.
