Bitcoin mining company BitFuFu has rolled out its financial report per Q1, showcasing a 150% increase in total revenue compared to Q1 2023.

Bitmain-backed public cryptocurrency mining company BitFuFu’s total revenue in Q1 soared to $144.4 million, representing an increase of 149.0% from $58.0 million in the same period of 2023 driven by the surge of demand for cloud-mining solutions.

In the Q1 earnings report, BitFuFu Leo Lu attributed the growth to the firm’s “asset-light strategy,” adding that the chosen approach “flexibly adjusts and optimizes mining equipment to maximize profitability.”

“Our cloud-mining solutions allow us to reduce revenue volatility created by sharp swings in digital asset prices and significantly strengthen cash flow by pre-selling hashrate at a fixed price that can be invested in expanding our business.”

The BitFuFu head also added the firm is looking to improve its adaptability by “acquiring existing mining facilities or constructing our own in the months ahead to optimize our cost structure and capital allocation even further and expand our bottom line.”

The financial report also noted an 181% increase in revenue from cloud-mining solutions, rising to $81.5 million from $29.0 million in the same period of 2023. This growth was primarily driven by repeat purchases from existing and new customers and an increase in the average selling price.

In early March, BitFuFu went public on Nasdaq under the ticker FUFU. The earnings report indicated that the company’s public listing procedures resulted in a 111% increase in general and administrative expenses, mainly due to a $1.2 million rise in legal and consulting fees. Following the news, FUFU shares were trading up 2.6% at $3.53, according to data from Google Finance.
