Bitcoin Miner Phoenix Group Goes Public in UAE

Phoenix Group, a Bitcoin mining company, has closed its Initial Public Offering (IPO) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This move marks a groundbreaking development for both the company and the region, as it signals a growing acceptance and integration of digital assets within the traditional financial landscape of the Middle East.

Highlight of the Phoenix Group IPO

The IPO, which closed on November 18, was met with unprecedented enthusiasm, boasting a remarkable 33 times oversubscription, according to reports. The company offered 907,323,529 shares, and the overwhelming demand, particularly from retail investors, exceeded expectations with a staggering oversubscription of 180 times. 

Professional investors also demonstrated robust support, contributing to a 22-fold oversubscription, underscoring the strength and potential of Phoenix Group in the crypto market.

Bijan Alizadehfard, the Co-Founder & Group CEO of Phoenix Group PLC, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “The overwhelming interest during the offer period is a powerful endorsement of our pioneering role in cryptocurrency mining and blockchain. The anticipation leading up to our listing on ADX, as reflected by the oversubscription, is a testament to the confidence investors place in our vision and the potential they see in Phoenix Group.”

The successful closure of the offer period sets the stage for Phoenix Group’s anticipated listing on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX) on December 4, 2023, under the trading symbol PHX. This listing is poised to further solidify the company’s position as an innovator and leader in the technology and blockchain sectors, marking a new era for Phoenix Group.

Bitcoin Mining Gaining Increasing Interest

Amidst Phoenix Group’s successful IPO, global attention on Bitcoin mining companies has intensified. Recent reports suggests that BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, holds a substantial stake in Bitcoin mining companies, highlighting the increasing institutional interest in the sector. 

Tether Holdings Ltd, the company behind the USD-pegged stablecoin (USDT), has also devised a three-year plan for its Bitcoin mining endeavor, which includes an investment of $500 million until 2025. Tether’s $500 million investment is said to be a substantial investment that might propel the $87 billion stablecoin operator to reasonable heights within the next six months.
