Argo Blockchain, a publicly-listed Bitcoin mining company, reported a 7% increase in its daily Bitcoin production in February despite the surge in network difficulty, which has reportedly reached an all-time high of 43 trillion on 25 February. According to the firm’s operational update on 7 March, it mined a total of 162 Bitcoins, or BTC equivalents last month. Cipher Mining and Marathon Digital are among other mining companies that have increased their Bitcoin production despite the rise in network difficulty.
