MyBit, an open source decentralised platform, has announced on Tuesday that it has partnered with cryptocurrency mining company Alpine Mining to help to tackle the issue of environmental sustainability regarding blockchain technology.

There’s a lot of excitement around the internet of things and blockchain right now. Globally, the market for IoT devices is projected to grow to $8.9T in 2020. Here at MyBit, we’re making buying, selling and monetising them as easy as using an app. And through our partnership with Alpine Mining, we’re bringing our tech to the mining community for the first time.

 

Ian Worrall

CEO, MyBit

According to the announcement, MyBit and Alpine Mining will offer distributed ownership of mining operations for every budget with the ability to scale rapidly. By integrating in the MyBit platform users will be able to co-own existing mining operations, customise or crowdfund their own.

MyBit added that as well as their partnership with Alpine Mining, the company is seeking to team up with other companies in the industry to help non-blockchain businesses to bring their IoT devices to new audiences.

Bitmain to File IPO Application

The largest mining company Bitmain has submitted to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX) listing application for an initial public offering (IPO), according to CoinDesk.

The application is a draft option, and some of its details, in particular the number of shares offered for sale and the immediate date of the IPO, are still in the process of editing.

Nevertheless, the document indicates that last year Bitmain's revenue was $ 2,517,719,000. This figure is higher than in 2016 ($ 277,612,000). As of June 30, 2018, the company's revenue was $ 2,845,467,000.

The application said that in 2017 the gross profit of the company was $ 1 212.7 million, which is also higher than in 2016 ($ 151,351,000).

Earlier, the head of Bitmain, Jihan Wu, expressed his indignation over the actions of the company's chief financial officer, who disclosed the figures for the first quarter 60 days after his end, and not after 90, as he had expected.

The media suggested that in the run-up to the IPO the publication of such information could have a negative effect on the company's investment attractiveness.

In addition, the document confirmed the media's information that Bitmain owns a 3% stake in Opera's Internet browser thanks to an investment of $ 50 million.

The application also indicates that the underwriters of the IPO are China International Capital Corporation Hong Kong Securities Limited, Commerce and Finance Law Offices, Maples and Calder LLP, KPMG and Frost & Sulliva
