“As Bitfury and its portfolio of companies continue their global expansion in the digital assets space, Bitfury will be considering an IPO as part of its broader expansion and growth plans,” Vavilov said.

The company has yet to announce its IPO date, nor has it indicated which exchanges it will conduct the IPO. Earlier, it was reported that Bitfury would be working with consulting firm Deloitte to prepare for the IPO. At the time, the IPO was still unconfirmed by Bitfury itself.

Bitfury’s offices are based in the Netherlands, while the company is legally based in the UK. The offering will likely be the largest IPO from a European crypto company to date. Bitfury is currently valued at between $500 million and $1 billion. The last funding round of the company took place in 2018. Of which, they raise $80 million at a $1 billion valuation.

Bitfury is one of many Bitcoin miners planning to go public. Other crypto miners, including Riot, HIVE, Marathon, and Canaan, have also made IPOs in recent years. Bitmain and MicroBT are also planning their IPOs. However, no company has yet completed those plans.
