Swan Bitcoin Expands into Mining and Eyes Public Listing
Swan Bitcoin, a financial services firm focused on Bitcoin, has unveiled a significant expansion of its operations with the launch of Swan Mining. This venture began in the summer of last year and represents the company’s move to broaden its institutional offerings. In an ambitious stride forward, Swan Bitcoin is now actively working towards becoming a publicly traded company within the next 12 months. The launch of Swan Mining initially operated in “stealth mode,” was motivated by the company’s goal to establish a more comprehensive presence in the Bitcoin ecosystem.
Impressive Early Achievements of Swan Mining
Since its inception, Swan Mining has already achieved notable success, mining 750 Bitcoin (BTC) with a current hash rate capacity of 4.5 exahashes per second (EH/s). The company expects a significant boost in its hash rate capacity, projecting it to exceed 8 EH/s with the deployment of new mining equipment in March. Swan Mining’s approach is characterized by financial prudence and strategic independence, as it operates without incurring debt and maintains a balance sheet separate from Swan Bitcoin’s other business arms.
Future Plans and Growth Strategy
Swan Bitcoin’s strategy for growth includes a balanced allocation of its next Series C funding among its financial services, mining, and acquisitions ventures. CEO Cory Klippsten is steering the company towards a public listing, a goal set for the next 12 months. The decision to launch Swan Mining in stealth mode was a tactical move to prevent disruptions in the pricing of ASIC miners. Additionally, Swan Mining has collaborated with several industry players to support capital raises and balance sheet restructuring, aiming to unlock substantial operational and financial benefits for its partners.
Despite these new ventures, Swan Bitcoin assures that its financial services unit remains robust and continues to expand. The firm has reported $125 million in revenue over the past 12 months and has doubled its staff count, highlighting its sustained growth and potential as it moves towards a public listing.
