Bitfarms updates HODLing strategy

The change in strategy has seen the company sell nearly half of its BTC holdings over the past week, with 3,000 bitcoins sold for roughly $62 million in that time. Out of that amount, $28 million went towards rebalancing its $66 million BTC-backed loan with Galaxy Digital.  The loan facility has reduced to $38 million, the firm said in the press release.

Despite no longer HODLing 100% of its mined BTC, Bitfarms says it remains bullish. Jeff Lucas, the firm’s CFO noted this in a tweet.

🗣️ Jeff Lucas, CFO: “While we remain bullish on long-term #BTC price appreciation, this strategic change enables us to focus on our top priorities of maintaining our world-class mining operations and continuing to grow our business in anticipation of improved mining economics.”
