Marathon Patent Vs. Riot Blockchain Marathon is a digital asset technology company that mines cryptocurrencies, with a focus on the blockchain ecosystem. The company operates a proprietary data center in Hardin, Montana, with a maximum power capacity of megawatts. Once fully deployed, Marathon will haveBitmain S19 Pro Antminers in operation at this facility.
But when the Bitcoin rally began to really accelerate in mid-November and December, so did Marathon. Riot Blockchain builds, supports and operates a blockchain technologies ecosystem.
The company is involved in digital currency mining operation, which uses specialized computers that generate digital currency, primarily Bitcoin. Riot also purchases and sells digital currencies, and provides ing, audit and verification services for blockchain-based assets.
The company developed TessPay, a payments ecosystem for component and sub-component supply chain settlements. Respondents noted there is a londoon lack of publicly traded mining equities based in the United States. Given their popularity, it can be said Riot and Marathon are the two bitcoin mining equities most likely to reach midcap status this year.
Many respondents said both firms will continue to capture retail and institutional attention in sympathy with Bitcoin's current bull run. This survey was conducted by Benzinga in January and included the responses of a diverse population of adults 18 or older. Opting into the survey was completely voluntary, with no incentives offered to potential respondents.
