Crypto Corner Podcast 825: Stocks discussed: (NYSE: BLK) (NasdaqGS: ARBK) (NasdaqCM: CLSK)
Stocks discussed: (NYSE:BLK) (NasdaqGS:ARBK) (NasdaqCM:CLSK)
BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE:BLK) has announced an expansion to its Megatrends suite with the launch of the iShares Blockchain and Tech ETF (IBLC), and the iShares Emergent Food and AgTech Multisector ETF (IVEG). According to the press release, “IBLC seeks exposure to global companies at the forefront of development, innovation, and utilization of blockchain and crypto technologies,” but it “does not invest directly in cryptocurrencies.” Rachel Aguirre, Head of U.S. iShares Product at BlackRock, commented:
“The expansion of our megatrends line-up today reflects the power of the millennial and rise of the self-directed investor, whose buying habits have reshaped mainstream consumer behaviors, and in turn, the companies in which they invest. We believe the moment is now to embrace these forward-looking investment themes before the market recognizes their full potential.”
Argo Blockchain (NasdaqGS:ARBK) has announced its audited results for the year ended 31 December 2021. Highlights include a revenue of $100.1 million, a net income of $41.5 million, and the mining of 2,045 Bitcoin (BTC). The company’s CEO, Peter Wall, said:
“2021 was truly a year of transformation for Argo as we accomplished key milestones to strengthen the foundation of the Group and position us for long-term success through the acquisition of the Helios project and our dual listing on Nasdaq. The acquisition of Helios provided us with the opportunity to build a best-in-class, vertically-integrated facility with access to low-cost and sustainable electricity, which is unmatched by our peers. With our mining operations at Helios expected to commence in May, along with the development of custom mining machines using Intel’s next-generation Blockscale ASIC chips, Argo is well-positioned to continue its growth with a focus on delivering for our shareholders. Onwards and upwards.”
CleanSpark, Inc. (NasdaqCM:CLSK) has partnered with Sustainable Bitcoin Standard (SBS), described in the press release as “an organization that incentivizes clean bitcoin mining.” This will see SBS provide CleanSpark “with verifiable proof for the bitcoins that the Company sustainably mines as part of the partnership.” Bradford van Voorhees, co-founder of SBS, said:
“SBS was designed to allow ‘Proof of Sustainable Mining’ to be transferred between bitcoin miners who use renewable energy and investors without disrupting the fungibility of Bitcoin. We are proud to have a top sustainable bitcoin mining company, which is also one of the biggest publicly traded bitcoin miners, as a mining partner of SBS.”
