Due to the bear market, bitcoin miners have made money even if their daily output has reached record lows. Bitfarms has suffered consecutive defeats over the last two quarters, thus the present market conditions haven’t been kind to the business. However, Bitfarms got a warning notice from Nasdaq on December 13 as a result of the company’s stock price falling below $1 for 30 consecutive working days. The company learned of the notification on December 14 and declared that it had a 180-day first term to get back in line with Nasdaq’s rules.

The company’s shares must close at $1 for 10 consecutive days before June 12, 2023, to comply. In such a case, Nasdaq representatives would notify Bitfarms in writing that compliance had been proven Two further mining firms that have already declared bankruptcy, Compute North and Core Scientific, are also encountering issues. With its limited resources, Argo Blockchain is also having difficulties.

Record-High D/E Ratio for Miners

Popular American Bitcoin miner Core Scientific revealed last week that the company has filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11. The report comes after a prolonged crypto winter and a sluggish increase in the value of Bitcoin, both of which were made worse by FTX’s bankruptcy. The company appeared to have the highest debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio and the most debt borrowing among its rivals.

Marathon is the second-largest debtor with commitments of $851 million. With $114 million in debt and no indication of bankruptcy, BitFarms is ranked in a safe tenth place. The aggregate debt of publicly traded bitcoin mining companies reaches $4 billion, according to research from Hashrate Index.

According to the platform, most industries view a debt-to-equity ratio of two or above as risky. Despite having a D/E ratio of 26.7, Core Scientific was overburdened with a substantial number of commitments. According to the criterion of the platform, Argo’s D/E ratio of 8.7 is also unusually high.

Marathon Digital Holdings, Canaan Inc., and Riot Blockchain have been excluded from the list of contenders. However, BIT Mining Limited, a leading competitor, too has a high D/E of 4.4.
