HARLAN COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - ANKR/Exponential Digital, a cryptocurrency mining company, will be opening an operation location in Eastern Kentucky.

The operation facilities will be in Chad, just outside of Cumberland.

The company is already searching for Data Center Facilities Technicians. Employees selected will be responsible for maintaining critical facilities infrastructure. Employees will be responsible for performing repairs, corrective maintenance, and complex installations. This will bring 10 new jobs to the area.

”The big benefit, in addition to the jobs, is they will be a large energy consumer on the Cumberland Valley Electric grid and the type of consumption that they’re generating from that particular facility will help overall from future rate increases for customers on that service,” Harlan County Judge Executive, Dan Mosley said.

The company was founded in California and has locations in California, North Carolina, Tennessee, and in other parts of the world such as Shanghai, Moscow, and Amsterdam.
