Standard Hashrate Group (“SHG”), the project team behind the Binance hashrate token, Bitcoin Standard Hashrate Token (“BTCST”), has officially welcomed world-renowned institutions in the mining industry as partners. The disclosed list of partners includes Atlas Mining, BTC.TOP, Easy2Mine, Genesis Mining, and Hengjia Group.
Standard Hashrate Group (“SHG”) is an open platform where prominent miners standardize and tokenize their BTC hashrate. Today, SHG officially announced the participation of several global mining institutions as its partners. Joining the project as tokenization miners are major stakeholders in the mining industry, Atlas Mining, BTC.TOP, Easy2Mine, Genesis Mining, and Hengjia Group.
CEO of SHG, Alex Zhao, said that the partners “share SHG’s vision of bringing exchange-level liquidity to mining power and bridging real-world mining to the DeFi world. Their rich experience and collaborative approaches in industrial-scale mining will be great complementary to SHG.” These industry-leading companies will be working with SHG to tokenize a total of 25 PH/s of Bitcoin hashrate into their Bitcoin Standard Hashrate Token (“BTCST”). Aside from this, the partner institutions will be pooling in their expertise and experience to provide assured continuity and skills needed to BTCST.
Jiwei Zhu, Chairman of Hengjia Group, said:
“As the operator of some of the largest hydropower cryptocurrency mining facilities, we applaud the innovation of the BTCST project.”
With its successful debut on Binance Launchpool, BTCST has become the benchmark hashrate token with deep market liquidity and price premium. BTC.TOP CEO, Zhuoer Jiang, said that “mining is an asset-intensive industry. BTCST has turned mining machines into high liquidity assets as Grayscale does to Bitcoin, injecting incremental value into the mining market.” The institutional partners echoed this positive sentiment towards this new development in mining products.
Rene Hennen, COO of Genesis Mining, said:
“BTCST is really exciting. It is one of the rare inventions which expands the Bitcoin ecosystem with the potential to add a lot of value.”
One facet of the BTCST that raises interest is the element of DeFi in mining, which has yet to be seen in bitcoin mining.
Cathy Yu, CMO of Easy2Mine, said:
“We believe a project like BTCST should focus on decentralization of hashrate sourcing.”
This point of view is shared by CEO of Atlas Mining, Tony Ma, who said that “BTCST has connected Bitcoin mining to the DeFi world,” and that “with BTCST, we can earn real BTC via crypto-native staking.”
According to the SHG whitepaper, the team aims to roll out BTCST token issuance in batches, as well as acquire and construct mining facilities within 2021.
