OUR INSIGHTS

The Opportunities

The market for microgrids is in a long-term secular growth trend, and CleanSpark is well-positioned to capitalize on this as it offers a differentiated, vendor agnostic software and hardware solution that provides significant ROI for customers. Additionally, CleanSpark is focused on scaling its bitcoin mining operation using ~100% low carbon energy and believes this business can contribute $30-40 million in revenue in FY21 and over $325 million in annualized revenue by September 2022. Currently, CleanSpark contributes ~1% of the global bitcoin capacity.

The Obstacles

The company is a smaller player in an industry dominated by much larger, well-capitalized competitors. CleanSpark has proven its ability to compete effectively but will need to continue to expand its sales network and ensure its technology agnostic software platform evolves with the industry. On the bitcoin side of the equation, an increase in mining difficulty rates would reduce the company’s bitcoin yield and associated revenue, and bitcoin price fluctuations would impact the profitability of the operation.
