The increase in Bitcoin’s price since the start of the year has been a boon for the stock of mining companies surviving the winter of 2022.

The stocks of several mining companies, including Canaan, Cipher Mining, Hut 8 Mining, Marathon Digital Holdings, and Riot Platforms, have recorded significant gains as the price of Bitcoin caused mining revenue to surge.

Mining Companies Stocks Surge up to 470%

After starting the year at $16,540, Bitcoin has risen 85% to $30,560, with more upside expected if the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approves several Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) applications.

Heavily-Indebted Mining Companies Suffered in Bear Market

Meanwhile, Standard Chartered Bank predicted that miners would start to hoard Bitcoin if it reached $50,000 by year-end.
