Hut 8 Mining is seeing new demand for artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing as it looks to reenergize some 6,400 rigs being moved from its inactive North Bay site in Ontario, Canada.

As previously reported, Hut 8 is in an ongoing legal battle with its third-party energy supplier Validus Power over alleged failure to meet contractual obligations. Operations at the mining facility have been suspended since November 2022.
