HydroMiner GmbH, a crypto currency mining company using green energy drawn from hydro power stations in the Alpine region of Europe, may list shares on London’s AIM stock exchange or similar markets for small and growing companies during 2018, according to Chief Financial Officer Davies Guttmann.
Davies Guttmann added that the company is actively courting regulation in Austria and the U.K. to give investors confidence in the fast-growing cryptocurrency market.
HydroMiner, which raised $2.8 million in an initial coin offering, is also in talks to form joint ventures in Austria, Canada and eastern Europe. It is stated that an agreement with a power utility or financial investor could be announced within months.
In the long-term, Guttmann said HydroMiner aspires to be an infrastructure company inside the cryptocurrency industry by providing hardware, software and skills. Until then, it’s trying to build a clean reputation inside a bitcoin market still seen by some as a scam.
Recently, we have reported that Bitmain Technologies, Chinese bitcoin mining giant, is going to open a branch in Switzerland.
