Core Scientific has taken some big steps to enhance the liquidity of bitcoin. This is by signing an agreement with B Riley, an investment bank, to issue several shares to the bank over a span of two years. Core Scientific is the largest bitcoin miner if we look in terms of hash rate. Core Scientific has the right to supply the new shares. It’s an important point to note that the firm doesn’t have any obligation to do so.
According to Core CEO Mike Levitt in the release, the firm intends to use this additional money to strengthen its balance sheet and support the miner’s growth.
