BTC, ETH Mining Company Hive to List Stock on Nasdaq

Canadian crypto miner Hive Blockchain Technologies says it has received approval to list shares on Nasdaq.

The company went public in 2017—since then, its shares have been trading on the Canadian exchange TSX.V.

As with other crypto-reliant stocks, fluctuations in the price of HIVE.V have more or less aligned with BTC’s price movements; it’s now sitting at CA$3.01, or around $2.42 a share.

Hive is one of just a few publicly traded mining companies. Others include Riot Blockchain and Marathon Digital Holdings (FKA Marathon Patent Group), both of which already trade on Nasdaq.

Mining proof-of-work cryptocurrencies like BTC and ETH requires a huge amount of energy, and companies often turn to fossil fuels for cheap access to power. The industry has faced criticism from environmentalists, progressive lawmakers, and businesspeople who don’t want to get their hands dirty.

The Hard Truth About BTC’s Energy Consumption

Hive claims it uses “100% green renewable energy” via “state-of-the-art green energy-powered data centre facilities in Canada, Sweden and Iceland,” though the company’s website is light on details.
