A United Kingdom-based mining services provider, Argo, has formally announced its plan to list Bitcoin (BTC) on its platform. It appears the listing will start from November 1st, 2018. Indeed, this move became necessary following endless customer requests to list the cryptocurrency on the platform. This latest addition brings the total number of virtual currencies available to subscribers to seven. Looking at the current MCAP of Bitcoin, it hovers around $108B USD. Before now, customers could merely mine Bitcoin Gold, Komodo, Ethereum, Horizen, Ethereum Classic, and Zcash. Subscribers enjoy this service through a mining-as-a-Service (MaaS) software via monthly subscription.
Now, the mining firm has the capacity to add BTC because it has successfully expanded its mining platform. Roughly 4,200 subscribers around the world use the services. This feat marks a significant increase in the company’s revenue since its Initial Public Offering (IPO) ended in August 2018. During the IPO, Argo successfully raised $32M USD. Looking at the background information of the company, Argo Blockchain PLC specializes in managing data through its data centers. Certainly, this is with the purpose of mining major cryptocurrencies. With a monthly subscription package, users can enjoy its MaaS-based services. Furthermore, the uniqueness of the service lies in the fact that it is capable of giving inexperienced miners the opportunity to mine a wide range of leading cryptocurrencies.
