Celsius Confirms $54M Investment In Miner Core Scientific

Recently, Celsius, the leading global cryptocurrency yield-earning platform, confirmed a $54m investment in carbon neutral Bitcoin mining leader Core Scientific.
This expenditure is part of $200 million commitment by Celsius to clean Bitcoin mining in North America situating Celsius as one of the largest United States investors and miners in the Bitcoin mining industry.
Well, Core Scientific is the largest host of bitcoin mining machines in North America. The company announced, just a day earlier, its plans to list its shares on Nasdaq via a merger with Power & Digital Infrastructure Acquisition. The miner will have a value of $4.3 billion. The Transaction is expected to provide in excess of $300 million in net cash proceeds to Core Scientific at closing, after transaction expenses and assuming no redemptions of shares by XPDI's existing public stockholders.
Alex Mashinsky, CEO of Celsius, said, "Exceptional companies like Core Scientific are leading the industry in carbon-neutral mining, setting the standard for energy efficiency in mining around the globe...We are thrilled to be investment partners and are excited to see the successes they've had this year, and looking forward to working together to grow our joint business in the future."
Last month, Celsius had joined the Bitcoin Mining Council, which is a voluntary organization of miners and high-profile members of the Bitcoin community concerned about mining’s environmental impact.
Core Scientific anticipates fiscal year 2021 revenue of $493 million and adjusted EBITDA of $203 million. It forecasts fiscal year 2022 revenue of $1.1 billion and 50% adjusted EBITDA margin.
