Compass Mining, the world's first online marketplace for Bitcoin mining hardware and hosting, announces today the launch of a real-time status updates page for miners to monitor the uptime of Compass hosting facilities around the world.

Monitoring the status of online machines is vital to a well-functioning mining operation. While the Compass concierge and client services teams constantly monitor facility statuses, Compass miners and even general non-mining audiences should also have direct access to the current and historical statuses of hosting sites.

From Canada to Russia to Iceland, all active Compass hosting facilities are listed at Each site will display one of the following current statuses: operational, under maintenance, degraded performance, partial outage or major outage. Ninety days of historical uptime data and reports on any prior incidents are also displayed.

“Transparency is critical to pushing the mining industry forward, especially for retail miners,” said Thomas Heller, Chief Business Officer at Compass. “Our team takes its mission to decentralize hashrate and democratize mining seriously. Offering a public line of sight into Compass hosting uptime is another small step in that direction.”
