In this step-by-step guide, you will learn how to buy Hut 8 stock on the popular trading platform Etrade.
Hut 8: The Story So Far
According to their website:
“The name “Hut 8” refers to the building at Bletchley Park where Alan Turing created his world-changing Enigma decoding machine during World War II. His work saved millions of lives, transformed cryptography and laid the foundation for Blockchain.”
Hut 8 started life in Alberta Canada in 2017 and still mines bitcoin there four years later. Utilizing a variety of renewable energy sources, they aim to be the world’s largest miner. According to their 2021 Q1 investor report, they have over 1000 petahash. The more petahash, the more bitcoin they can mine.
With over 3,000 BTC on their balance sheet, it’s arguably a stock to watch in the years ahead.
Their CEO, Jaime Leverton, is happy with how the business is going:
“The Q1 2021 results are in and I could not be happier as we continue to strengthen and refine the Hut 8 story while creating and maintaining long-term value.”
Hut 8 had record revenue of $32.5 million in 2021 Q1, more than double their 2020 Q1 revenue. They have a partnership with NVIDIA for 10,000 NVIDIA CMP cards, which is an enterprise-class product that is not available on the open market. Part of their revenue is gained by lending some of their bitcoin to Genesis and Galaxy Digital, which earns HUT 8 a yield.
