Financial Institutions Ramp Up Activity in the Auspicious Cryptocurrency Sector

NEW YORK, June 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --  The cryptocurrency market constantly evolves as new technologies utilizing blockchain are introduced. As a result, major corporations and financial institutions are now more open minded about the potential of such currencies. For example, Morgan Stanley has purchased recently 28,289 shares of Grayscale Bitcoin Trust through its Europe Opportunity Fund, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing. Furthermore, a report by Coindesk indicates that Morgan Stanley has been increasingly active in the cryptocurrency space in recent months to meet growing demand from its clients. Overall, the banking and financial services application area is expected to hold the largest market size in the blockchain market. And, according to data provided by Markets and Markets, the global blockchain market size is expected to grow from USD 3.0 Billion in 2020 to USD 39.7 Billion by 2025, at an impressive CAGR of 67.3% during the forecast period of 2020–2025. ISW Holdings Inc. (OTC: ISWH), BIT Mining Limited (NYSE: BTCM), Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARA), Majic Wheels Corp. (OTC: MJWL), HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (OTC: HVBTF)

Among the plethora of possibilities blockchain and cryptocurrency technology can offer, companies like Coinbase strive to prove the feasibility of investing in this market for the long run. Coindesk reported that Coinbase is rolling out a crypto savings account that lets you earn 4% annual percentage yield (APY). This is a significantly higher yield than what traditional savings accounts offer.

ISW Holdings Inc. (OTC: ISWH) along with Bit5ive, LLC provided earlier last week, "an in-depth update on the Company's progress as it continues to expand and optimize its cryptocurrency mining operations.

'ISW Holdings operates as a diversified holdings company with a current market cap of approximately $25 million, driven largely by the Company's growing expertise in acquiring, launching, hosting and operating assets in the cryptocurrency and telehealth sectors,' noted ISW Holdings President and Chairman Alonzo Pierce. 'Our partnership with Bit5ive has provided us with a state-of-the-art POD5 infrastructure and the ability to develop efficient and expandable mining operations. We look forward to further expansion and optimization in this domain over the coming months.'

The Company currently operates its mining equipment adjacent to powerful and efficient energy resources in Kennerdell, Pennsylvania.

Pierce added, 'We continue to make huge progress, recently increasing our hashrate to 72,000 Th/s, driving an expected $484,000 in monthly revenue – or over $5.8 million annually – through the Bitmain Antminer s17 fleet we already have online and working. As we continue to maximize our hashrate, we should see a reduction in proportional direct costs associated with mining operations. Naturally, we continue to lean on Robert and Bit5ive for expertise and support in translating our investment in this process into growing value.'

Bit5ive is North America's largest provider of collective management services and mining equipment, along with ISWH, offering a turnkey solution for delivering cost-efficient and reliable hosting, distribution of mining equipment, complete facility management and mining pool operations in projects to be announced…"
