New Unicorn List Available from Bitcoin Mining Companies
Three bitcoin mining companies have joined a list of “unicorns” – private companies valued at over $1 billion – for the first time.
The Shanghai-based Hurun Research Institute published its Q2 Unicorn Index for the Greater China region on Wednesday, which notably included the names of several major bitcoin mining firms: Bitmain, Canaan Creative and Ebang.
The third Hurun list of 130 Chinese unicorns has never before featured a fully cryptocurrency-focused firm.
Meanwhile, Hurun values Canaan and Ebang at around $3 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively – figures that saw the firms placed at at 32nd and 53rd on the list, also respectively.
While the three are the first fully devoted bitcoin firms to appear on the Greater China Unicorn Index, some of the companies already on the list have already made major moves in the blockchain industry.
