An Open Letter from TeraWulf Chairman and CEO Paul Prager
The past year has been a transformative one for TeraWulf and the entire cryptocurrency industry. Today, I am writing to express my gratitude. We are proud of our achievements, inspired by our extraordinary employees, and confident in our strategy. Importantly, we would like to thank our loyal investors and his fellow WULFpack members for helping us through an unimaginably difficult year.
Rest assured that I am with you and will continue to invest in TeraWulf personally. During this one-year period, management invested more than $15 million of his personal capital into the company. This is what we believe to be the best leadership team in the field and underscores WULF’s mission and confidence in what we are building. As further proof of my belief, I have not sold any shares, directly or indirectly.
Despite the turbulent environment, we have remained focused on building a scalable, vertically integrated Bitcoin mining company with low cost and over 91% zero carbon energy. I would like to highlight some of the key milestones we achieved in our first year as a public company.
In March 2022, the former turbine deck of a retired coal mill began mining at the Mariner Lake facility in New York.
Construction of Building 1 on Mariner Lake is complete, with approximately 17,500 miners online at peak efficiency, rapidly scaling operations to over 2 EH/s.
Completed construction of two 100 MW buildings at the Nautilus Crypto Mine in Pennsylvania, meeting target for delivery in Q1 2023 and delivering 50 MW of net capacity (reflecting our 25% interest) Achieved.
Restructuring the Nautilus JV with Talen Energy Corp. to leverage one of WULF’s most valuable assets. That’s 50 MW of zero-carbon power contracted at a fixed price of just $0.02/kWh.
We efficiently sourced miners to fully utilize our 160 MW of mining capacity and had no further payment obligations.
What makes TeraWulf different is that it owns and operates the facility, controls the electricity supply, and utilizes over 91% zero-carbon energy sources. In the energy market, location is everything and our sites are located in robust and advanced markets that offer the best value for the grid services we offer. The 2022 power fluctuations emphasized the importance of power contracts. This has been our business for his 30+ years. As an almost completely zero-carbon miner, we believe we are strategically positioned relative to our competitors in an increasingly stringent regulatory environment.
We’ve made great progress this year, but there’s still a lot to do. As we move into 2023 and strive to execute our plans and pursue growth, we will be operating with a few clear priorities.
We will reach our goal of 49,000 active miners (5.5 EH hash rate) in Q1 2023.
Leveraging a blended power cost of $0.035/kWh, 30% down than industry average1.
Optimize profitability by implementing recently announced cost-saving initiatives.
Extend the set of grid services we offer to the market.
Support a more collaborative approach to regulation and thoughtful alignment of rules.
So I’ll wrap up where I started – with a heartfelt thank you. Your trust and confidence in TeraWulf has helped us build a great company.
