About Hive Blockchain Technologies Ltd.
Hive Blockchain Technologies went public in 2017 as the first cryptocurrency mining company with a green energy and ESG (environmental, social and governance) strategy.
Hive is a growth-oriented technology stock in the emergent blockchain industry. As a company whose shares trade on a major stock exchange, Hive is building a bridge between the digital currency and blockchain sector and traditional capital markets. Hive owns state-of-the-art, green-energy-powered data centre facilities in Canada, Sweden and Iceland, where the company sources only green energy to mine on the cloud and hold both ethereum and bitcoin. Since the beginning of 2021, Hive has held in secure storage the majority of its ethereum and bitcoin coin mining rewards. The company's shares provide investors with exposure to the operating margins of digital currency mining as well as a portfolio of cryptocurrencies such as ethereum and bitcoin. Because Hive also owns hard assets such as data centres and advanced multiuse servers, the company believes its shares offer investors an attractive way to gain exposure to the cryptocurrency space. Hive traded over two billion shares in 2020.
