Compass Mining loses its facility over multiple late and non-payments

Bitcoin’s recent price crash has made it extremely difficult for mining companies to survive or make profits. A recent study showed that 100% of miners sold their coins mined in May. And now Compass Mining, a well-known firm, loses its Maine-based facility after being unable to pay its dues on time. The owner of the facility, Dynamics Mining, terminated its agreement with the firm over multiple months of late and non-payments.

Compass Mining defaults on power consumption dues

Dynamics mining reported that Compass Mining had to pay $1.2 million in power consumption bills, but it made a payment of only $665,000. The firm also alleged that Compass had used the money for bills to build other facilities while claiming to have made the payment. Compass Mining’s CEO, Whit Gibbs, replied to this and said they would “fight this battle in court, not on Twitter.

However, Dynamics Mining seems to be really ticked off at what is happening and tweeted again that all Compass Mining had to pay was $250k for 3 months of power usage. Still, Compass has discarded all of the allegations. In light of these events, it is essential to note that Compass’s CEO and CFO resigned on June 28th. There is no information on whether the resignations are directly associated with the Dynamics Mining problems.
