Controlling 17% of BTC hash rate: Report on publicly listed mining firms
The Cointelegraph Research Terminal, the leading provider of premium databases and institutional-grade research on blockchain and digital assets, has added a new report to its expanding library. The latest paper looks at a particular group of players in the (BTC) mining industry. Published by crypto consulting firm Crypto Oxygen, the report highlights the current landscape of publicly listed crypto mining companies that control approximately 17% of the total hash rate of the entire Bitcoin network.
The crypto mining industry is a quickly growing and evolving sector. In January this year, a United States-based company Core Scientific went public via a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) merger, making it the largest publicly traded crypto mining company in revenue and hash rate. Core Scientific’s hash rate leads all public companies with 8.3 exahashes per second (Eh/s), and it mined 5,769 BTC in 2021, generating about $545 million in revenue. Coming in second and third in terms of revenue are Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ:) and Hive Blockchain Technologies, earning $215 million and $195 million, respectively.
