Ep. 14 Hashrate Future Selling for Bitcoin Miners

On today's show, my guest is Patrick Guerriero and we explore a slightly different area of the bitcoin mining industry today; we dig into the finance & liquidity side of bitcoin mining. Patrick is the General Manager of the US for Block Green, Block Green is a decentralized lending protocol that gives sustainable mining operations access to fair and transparent liquidity from Bitcoin holders looking to participate in securing the network. They want to become the one-stop shop for the financial needs of mining operations, with strong ESG principles at heart. Patrick is coming to the conversation today with years of experience in the commodities trading world where he was the Director of Research overseeing investments in new energy technologies and he also has experience in the digital mining ecosystem.

During today’s show, Patrick and I talk about how in his past experience a traditional fund viewed bitcoin and bitcoin mining as a commodity but why they opted to not invest at the time; we then dive into how the market was valuing bitcoin mining operations and miner financing during the last bitcoin bull run; We discuss why it is so important to have liquidity in the market and how Block Green is helping usher in more liquidity options for bitcoin miners; and lastly we wrap up the discussion talking about how people and institutions are valuing hashrate as something they can purchase and what the future state of the hashrate derivative market looks like. As I mentioned, this is a slightly conversation than I am used to having on the show but I think that it is important to highlight some of the other important areas in the bitcoin mining industry for you guys & gals. And so with that, I hope that you enjoy todays conversation with Patrick Guerriero.
