Wall Street has been invaded by Bitcoin mining companies. In the last three years, Bitcoin mining companies have grown massively. They are even starting to list on Wall Street as an emerging industry.
The sheer number of Bitcoin mining companies listed on NASDAQ proves that Wall Street can no longer be indifferent to the attractiveness of the market.
In just two short years, along with the uptrend of the Bitcoin price, the number of listed Bitcoin mining companies also increased. There were six companies in the first quarter of 2021. To date, there are now 16 companies.
This number will jump to double that by the first quarter of 2022. There are currently 7 companies in the Pending Listing form.
Bitcoin mining has ceased to be spontaneous and concentrated on a few large companies. Instead, it has become more specialized, and the market share is more fragmented. Wall Street can hardly deny the lucrative appeal of Bitcoin mining.
