Hut 8 Set to Conclude Merger with US Bitcoin Corp

Hut 8 is edging closer to concluding its merger with US Bitcoin Corp (USBTC) in a move projected to create a combined business spanning across various operations. Hut 8 chief executive Jaime Leverton update is on track towards completing the merger development.

Leverton profiled the merger with US Bitcoin Corp as ushering in a new initiative to realize geographic diversity and broader revenue streams for the mining company. 

US Bitcoin Corp Vote to Support Merge with Hut 8 Mining

The deal unveiled in a February press briefing is considered by industry leaders as a merger of equals. US Bitcoin Corp stockholders backed the deal in a vote favoring combining the constituent entities in a milestone hailed as edging the deal closer to the conclusion by November 30.

Hut 8 Mining chief observed during the earning call held earlier in November that US Bitcoin Corp operations in the US, including the New York, Texas, and Nebraska campuses, would complement the firm’s Canadian footprint. 

Dan Weiskopf, who serves as the co-portfolio manager at the Amplify Transformational Data Sharing ETF (BLOK), labeled the USBTC-Hut 8 merger a step forward toward a new entity based in the US.

Weiskopf noted that the success of the combined business will depend on how Best Hut 8 transforms and creates work synergies. He hailed the plan devised by the US Bitcoin Corp management as one geared for success. Nonetheless, he opined that the combined business will leverage multiple pivots since transforming autonomous entities is not always neat.

Leverton indicated at the onset of November that the merger would involve the integration of multiple business lines under a single umbrella. He pointed out that USBTC runs fiat-based revenue generation streams, including managing and hosting infrastructure operations.

Hut 8 Hails Diversified Revenue Streams in USBTC Merger

The merger will allow Hut 8 Mining to tap diversified revenue streams in the combined business. In particular, Leverton considers that it will flex between the geographically diversified business to leverage the multiple momentum and swings characterizing the market. Such is inevitable given the bullish momentum witnessed across the high-performance computing segment coinciding with the anticipated bitcoin halving. 

US Bitcoin Corp revealed securing a lucrative deal for it to host 8500 miners from Celsius Network within its Alpha site. The deal came softly after USBTC’s selection in May to oversee and run the Celsius-owned infrastructure, including 122,000 mining equipment as the firm. The deal is subject to approval from the bankruptcy court.

Leverton hailed the Celsius and USBTC deals as portraying the progressive front desired by any executive. She indicated that USBTC has successfully embarked on expanding the fee-based revenue lines since 2022. She noted during the November 14 earnings call that a similar effort is evident in managing the services business that coincides with the deal on Celsius assets. 

Leverton emphasized that closing the USBTC merger deal will facilitate the two teams in deciding on the subsequent move that will involve both organic and inorganic growth. 

Mining Firms Evolving Operations to Survive

Weiskopf opined that Hut 8 Mining’s move to merge with USBTC yields an economic sense as he anticipates more miners to evolve their businesses to survive. Such is evident in Hive Digital Technologies’ announcement to scale operations towards artificial intelligence. Also, Marathon Digital renewed its plans to expand geographically as well as diversify its mining methods.

Bitfarms disclosed in a Monday, November 27 update that it acquired closer to 36,000 Bitmain T21. The firm labeled the acquisition as positive to transform its fleet plan. 

The Amplify Transformational Data Sharing ETF supported the move by miners to evolve their businesses for longevity. It admitted allocations to Bitfarms and Hut 8 at 1.67% and 2.28%, respectively, within its portfolio of assets now valued at $485 million. It cheered the heights scaled by the Hut 8’s stock price to surge 150% year to date.

Weiskopf indicated that the pursuit of growth toward becoming a large-scale miner requires a bold move to leap ahead of rivals. He considers that some miners will perish in realizing the halving. The fortunate firms are those reaching tough yet strategic decisions, as illustrated in the Hut 8 merger with US Bitcoin Corp.
