Atlas has been exploring different methodologies and seeks to be entirely carbon-free in the near future. This new partnership with Compute North is a step towards that goal.

Raymond Yuan, Chairman of Atlas, expressed his delight in the partnership, "We are pleased to name Compute North as our trusted hosting provider and are committed to building a strong, long-term relationship. Atlas operates its mining business globally and highly values the partnership with local companies, like Compute North, who share our vision for sustainability and environmental responsibility," as reported by Nasdaq.

In the First Quarter of 2022, Atlas will be expanding its operations in the U.S., launching several facilities in North America. Furthermore, the new partnership with Compute North will enable the firm to produce 3.7 Exahases/second.

Dave Perill, the CEO of Compute North, also excited about the deal, said, "We're proud that Compute North's focus on sustainable mining solutions factored into Atlas Mining's decision to partner with us for its upcoming U.S. deployment."

According to Perill, the superior TIER 0™ data center design of Compute North will provide greater stability and better efficiency to the grids, reducing the power usage cost by a great deal.

With a continuous effort to reduce the cost as well as to find a suitable non-renewable source for mining rigs, the two firms have agreed to work together for the years to come.
