Ep. 21 Bitcoin Mining and Artificial Intelligence

Today's show is really fun conversation, I sat down with Sue Ennis the VP of Corporate Development at Hut 8. Hut 8 is advancing innovation and providing the foundation for the digital economy through high performance infrastructure, cutting-edge technology solutions, and digital mining. As a High Performance Computing pioneer powering the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and a responsible digital asset mining leader, their mission is to create value for generations to come. Sue is coming to the conversation with years of experience in the financial services asset management space and a deep knowledge and understanding of the bitcoin and bitcoin mining industry.

During today’s show, we start by talking about how a 2 week journey in the Amazon jungle is what led to Sue’s interest in bitcoin and led her down the bitcoin mining rabbit hole; We dive into the 3 main pillars of business at Hut 8 and how they have now branched out into the HPC space in a meaningful way; we talk through the strategy of hodling so much bitcoin on the balance sheet and how that has been an extremely powerful tool for Hut 8 to leverage; we discuss the upcoming merge with US Bitcoin Corp and how that is a big part of their growth plan; and lastly we wrap up discussing how disruptive the AI space is and how Hut 8 is uniquely positioned to take advantage of that significant growth. This conversation was an absolute blast for me and its super cool for me to be able to dig into such a large and reputable mining company like Hut 8.

Today’s podcast is brought to you by our sponsor, the Texas Blockchain Council; a bitcoin-first nonprofit industry organization working to make Texas the jurisdiction of choice for bitcoin mining and blockchain innovation.
