To move forward, Argo Blockchain PLC has plans to add more mining capacity. By the end of June 2021, the firm’s total mining power is expected to be increased to a total of 1,685 petahashes. Which means the firm is going to add more than double of its current computing power. Furthermore, to achieve the target, the firm has already ordered more 10,000 required machines. However, the devices are expected to be delivered between February and June, too in different batches.

As the shares fall with a decline in the price of Bitcoin, and with a surge in Bitcoin’s price level, the price of Argo’s shares also increases.
