Hut 8 Mining: High Growth, Unstable Profitability

Time:2022-01-05 Source: 1092 views Trending Copy share

Hut 8 Mining Corp (HUT) is a cryptocurrency mining company with industrial-scale bitcoin mining operations in Canada. It provides investors with direct exposure to bitcoin without the technical complexity or constraints of purchasing the underlying cryptocurrency.

It is in the business of utilizing specialized equipment to solve complex computational problems to validate transactions on the bitcoin blockchain. The company receives bitcoin in return for the commercial activity of bitcoin mining.

I am bearish on HUT stock considering its gains of about 180% in 2021 are not fully justified by operating and financial performance, and bitcoin volatility is adding another highly unpredictable risk. Crypto stocks have several risks as we move into 2022, with the regulatory framework being on top.
