Argo launches Bitcoin on its mining platform

Argo, a UK-based provider of cryptocurrency mining services (LSE: ARB), is pleased to announce the launch of Bitcoin, the world's largest cryptocurrency, on its platform from 1(st) of November 2018.

The move comes in response to consumer demand and will increase the total number of cryptocurrencies available for mining by subscribers to seven. The current market capitalisation of Bitcoin is $114bn.

Argo's customers are currently able to mine Bitcoin Gold, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Zcash, Komodo and Horizen through its monthly subscription, cloud-based mining-as-a-software service.

The addition of Bitcoin follows the successful expansion of Argo's mining platform and a ten-fold increase in its sold packages to 4,200, marking the first significant ramp-up of the Company's revenues since its Initial Public Offering in August of 2018.

"We are delighted to announce the addition of Bitcoin to our platform. This is yet another step towards Argo's long-term goal to become the leading global provider of easy-to-use and transparent crypto-mining services for the general public" said Mike Edwards, president and co-founder of Argo.

"We have seen strong demand for Bitcoin and our growth strategy is customer-led. We look forward to offering even more choice as demand grows and we invest in our platform."
