The current executive director, Fred Thiel, said in the press release that Marathon had performed “maintenance and updates” on the systems before miner deliveries accelerated, and in anticipation of a decrease in the overall hash rate. “We are now better prepared to receive the large shipments that are coming and take advantage of the favorable mining conditions that are expected,” Thiel said.
