DMG benefits from deep global expertise in building large-scale computing facilities and brings a wealth of blockchain mining and infrastructure knowledge to the project. As we plan the first stage of development for our project in Morocco, we are thrilled to have a seasoned partner to galvanize our efforts to create the world’s first vertically-integrated blockchain computing company.”
“We are excited about our new strategic partnership with Soluna,” said Dan Reitzik, Founder and CEO, DMG. “I’m confident that our proven expertise in managing, operating, and developing end-to-end digital solutions for the blockchain ecosystem will complement Soluna’s unique approach.
