Recently, a company called HashChain Technology, which is a cryptocurrency mining company has gone public; it was able to list on the TSX Venture Exchange with the symbol KASH. They are not first ones to go public in this space as there are several others such as Genesis Cloud Mining and others who have also gone public. There seems to be a long line of companies in the blockchain industry who are also seeking to go public. The number of businesses that are looking to go public are more than 45 and all plan on being placed on TSX venture exchange. They all seek to go public in within the year of 2018.
These companies are utilizing the exchange of TSX because the exchange is less averse to the concept of risk than other exchanges.
TSX History & HashChain
The exchange has focused on small and medium companies in the sectors of oil, physical mining, gas and other industries in the past.
The firm has now accepted newer companies focused on emerging markets like the medical cannabis industry.
As of late, the trading company is accepting the various firms that are contributing to the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
The stock of the mining company is currently trading at the share price of $2.36. The mining firm was able to raise an excess of 3 million dollars with their public offering.
HashChain is focused on Dash as it is currently a Masternode in the Dash network and has voting power within the system. The team over at the mining firm will seek to progress into mining other digital currencies like Bitcoin within the first quarter of this year.
A key highlight of the firm is their purchase of the Dash Masternode:
“In addition to mining digital currency, the Company has also acquired a Dash Masternode for approximately USD $280,000 which requires a collateral investment of 1,000 Dash coins.”
They have realized a significant gain on this investment:
“Based on current prices as of December 15, 2017, the Masternode investment is worth approximately USD $880,000. By holding this investment, HashChain receives the right to participate in budget funding decisions for the Dash network while also receiving a return on investment in the form of virgin coins and currency appreciation.”
Their mining operations will continue to take place on Canadian soil, in the city of Vancouver, a city that is emerging as a hub for cryptocurrency based projects. The founding team of HashChain believes that the frigid arctic conditions allow for cost-efficient mining. They don’t have to worry about cooling their equipment because of their environment.
