Bitmain IPO in ‘Death Spiral’? Rumors Of $740M Q3 Loss as Bitcoin Cash Crashes

Fresh rumors over the financial health of Bitcoin mining giant Bitmain cast a shadow over the company again this week, suggesting it faces losses close to $1 billion.


Bitmain’s Worst Quarter?

Originally reported by the Twitter account known as BTCKING555 December 3, the author of which almost exclusively tweets about Bitmain, unreleased quarterly earnings data for Q3 2018 allegedly reveals $740 million losses.

If true, the giant cash hemorrhage would mark Bitmains worst quarter on record.

According to the leaked information, the number could end up higher, as the losses do not take into account additional expenditure by Bitmain shoring up its favored fork of failing altcoin Bitcoin Cash.

The company lost $740 Million including losses on inventory and bitcoin cash! And this is not accounting for hash war costs! the Twitter account summarized.



Bitcoin Cash Hits All-Time Lows

Bitmain has faced a war on multiple fronts throughout this year. Negative publicity over hostility to Bitcoin, poor sales and technical performance of its mining hardware combined with the dwindling value of the companys Bitcoin Cash reserves to paint a dire financial picture even in Q1.

When an earlier leak informed the industry about plans to launch an IPO, criticism immediately focused on the cash crisis.

Bitcoin Cash has lost the vast majority of its value in less than twelve months, while Bitmain has opted to jettison its BTC stocks in favor of buying more of the asset.

Novembers contentious hard fork, which saw the BCH chain split in two, has resulted in even heavier losses.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) 00 currently trades at all-time lows in both USD and BTC terms.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it was social media commentators who pointed to the BCH woes as proof Bitmains official Q3 statistics would be its gallows laugh.
