Foundry aims to strengthen the Bitcoin ecosystem by geographically decentralizing its hashrate.
“Combining with Hut 8 will bring us closer to the top 5 among Bitcoin mining pools in the world”– said the head of Foundry Mike Collier.

Hut 8’s decision was influenced by Foundry USA’s offering of “financial management services for mining companies.” It stems from the seamless integration of the pool with Genesis, another DCG subsidiary.
The service implies the possibility of generating profitability on the basis of mined coins, storage with a high level of security, lending against bitcoin collateral, the use of derivative products and “smooth” liquidation.
Recall Foundry digital announced about inviting institutional clients to the Foundry USA pool for bitcoin mining earlier in March this year.
In January, when announcing the launch of the mining pool, Silbert stated that he will become the largest in the United States…
