Toronto-based Hut 8 Mining Corp., which is backed by leading blockchain technology provider, Bitfury, announced today that its common shares have begun trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”), under the symbol “HUT”. According to its statement, this makes Hut 8 the world’s largest publicly traded cryptocurrency mining company based on funded and under-construction computing capacity, with additional benefits stemming from listing on a public exchange.

“Today’s listing on the TSXV is a milestone for Canadian investors, who can now access one of the world’s largest publicly traded crypto-mines without purchasing the underlying cryptocurrency,” stated Sean Clark, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Hut 8. “In crypto-mining, scale is what determines success in the short term, but is also what allows mines to weather any volatility over the long term. Our exclusive partnership with Bitfury, one of the world’s leading full-service Blockchain companies, facilitates the kind of scale that will allow us to deliver ongoing value to investors.”
