Canadian well-known Bitcoin mining company Bitfarms borrows $ 20 million to purchase the new miner. Recently, news has come out that the well known Canadian Bitcoin mining company Bitfarms borrowed $20 million to buy a new miner.
As suggested by the news, they made use of more than 20 million US dollars of secured debt so that they could purchase more than 13,000 new mining machines to make their work more comfortable and more efficient.

Further, the reports also show that at the time of the halving of Bitcoin mining rewards in May this year, Bitfarms was facing strict contract terms.
They were carrying high-interest loans, and as a result, also had to face the departure of several members of the management team. On seeing all this, one can see that the challenges faced by them are severe.
The utilisation of $20 million secured loans, to purchase over 13,000 new generation miners may come out as beneficial for the Company.

It coupled with several recent departures from the management team and noise complaints from locals. Right now, Bitfarms has so much to worry about as the bitcoin reward halving is approaching.
