ABOUT
MERKLE
STANDARD

Merkle Standard is guided by its two core tenets: accelerating sustainability within digital assets mining and developing a vertically-integrated platform. Our flagship mining facility features 225 MW of power infrastructure, 900 acres of land, and over 350,000 square feet of usable open building space, the Washington facility is key to our vision.

Portion of the grid's supply utilises hydroelectric generation

85% hydro is based on the power generation within our area, there is an abundance of dams in the Ponderay region with ample water from ice thaw and rain flowing down the rivers.

24/7 Interruptible Energy Load

To support the grid and our local community, Merkle Standard operates a curtailable load, scaling down operations in times of intense energy demand to give back to the grid while ensuring a balanced and stable load can be supported in these times of need.

Projected to be net carbon-negative by 2023 YE

All Merkle sites are operated in a manner to minimize carbon emitted into the atmosphere, with renewable energy sources making up the bulk of our portfolio and the remaining power being balanced out with renewable energy credits (REC's)

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Blockchain?

Blockchain is a record-keeping system in which transactions are conducted with a cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin. These transactions are catalogued on a decentralized set of computers linked on a peer-to-peer network.

What is Proof of Work?

Proof of work (PoW) is issued by cryptocurrencies to validate the transactions that occur in their networks in which one party proves to others that meaningful computational work or effort has been completed. Verifiers (miners) can subsequently confirm this process with minimal effort. These networks are usually built on technology.

What is an ASIC?

An "ASIC" or application-specific integrated circuit is an integrated circuit chip created and designed particular use, rather than for general use. ASICs miner's use to mine Bitcoin are designed to one produce Bitcoin as efficient as possible.

What are Blocks?

Blocks are files that record sets of transactions. Blocks are then entered into the blockchain, and are logged into the network and are permanent.

What is Hashrate?

Hash rate is the the amount of computer processing power dedicated to a specific network, most notably, Bitcoin. Bitcoin mining is a vital process that keeps the digital currency’s network maintained and secured. Specifically, ASIC miners are usually rated on a TH/s basis. The "overall" Bitcoin hash rate is expressed as exashashes per second (EH/s).
