JPMorgan Wednesdays coverage by naming CleanSpark its top mining pick, hailing the company’s “A-team” management and fund growth plans.
According to a recent positive analysis, significant catalysts could lead to a rally if miners can withstand the enormous risks that threaten their very existence.
However, it downgraded the mining behemoths Riot Platforms and Marathon Digital, citing impending high costs and uncertainties. According to JPMorgan, “the eagerly awaited approval of a bitcoin spot ETF could light a fire under crypto prices, raining money on effective miners.” Analysts are concerned about the impending storm of record hash rates and the halving in 2019.
On the verge of a crypto winter, “it’s do or die time for bitcoin miners,” lead analyst Reginald Smith declared. “Those who lock in funding and cut costs will be ready to strike if the ETF sparks a breakout in bitcoin.”
With JPMorgan, CleanSpark won the lead thanks to its “lean and mean” operations.
However, analysts warned that Marathon Digital’s enormous energy expenditures would create a “albatross” during the cut. Following its successful acquisition of Whinstone United States, Riot Platforms now confronts integration challenges.
The SEC’s impending ETF ruling, which might make Bitcoin popular, is the focus of all attention. JPMorgan, meanwhile, anticipates existential dangers if miners don’t make it through the looming cyclone with a wind speed of half. Crypto miners navigating the storm of 2023 now have institutional attention thanks to the bank’s start of coverage.
