Argo Launches Bitcoin on Its Mining Platform

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Argo, a UK-based provider of cryptocurrency mining services, is pleased
to announce the launch of Bitcoin, the world’s largest cryptocurrency,
on its platform from 1st 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.

customer-led. We look forward to offering even more choice as demand
grows and we invest in our platform.”
