The Singaporean cryptocurrency miner – Bitdeer – expects to go public on April 14 after finalizing the SPAC merger with Blue Safari Group Acquisition Corp.
The former displayed its intentions to enter Nasdaq in November 2021. However, shareholders of Blue Safari delayed the initiative three times in the past several months due to the harsh environment caused by the bear market.
As announced by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Bitdeer and Blue Safari officially shook hands on a $4 billion business combination. As a result, the shares of the bitcoin mining company will begin trading on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “BTDR” on April 14, 2023.
While Bitdeer and Blue Safari initially partnered at the end of 2021, shareholders delayed the SPAC merger three times, citing the harmful effects of the prolonged crypto winter.
Linghui Kong – CEO of Bitdeer – described the final step of the agreement as a “significant milestone:”
“I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved so far, and look forward to embarking on the next chapter of our journey. We are already a leading hash rate supplier, and our public listing will allow us to make even greater contributions to the crypto economy.
Looking ahead, we are well-positioned to generate sustainable value as we execute our long-term business strategy,” he added.
Blue Safari’s CFO – Naphat Sirimongkolkasem – praised Bitdeer for its “exceptional work” over the years and the “unwavering commitment to innovation.” He believes there is a bright future ahead of the BTC miner.
The American bitcoin mining firm TeraWulf raised nearly $200 million at the end of 2021 to boost its capacity and prepare itself for a public listing on Nasdaq. It completed a business merger with the tech company IKONICS Corporation in the following months and entered the global marketplace under the symbol “WULF.”
Some industry leaders, such as Marathon Digital and Riot Blockchain, have also listed their shares for public trading. “MARA” currently trades at approximately $10 (a 195% increase YTD), while “RIOT” is worth $12.35 (260% more than the valuation at the beginning of 2023).
Another popular mining firm that went public is Core Scientific. Its shares, though, have plummeted to $0.40 due to the company’s filing for bankruptcy protection a few days before Christmas 2022.
