The Argo Blockchain share price is falling: should I buy?

first_img Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB) was incorporated as a company (as GoSun Blockchain) on 5 December 2017. On 3 August the following year, it had its IPO; shares opened for trading at 17p. Since the IPO, the Argo Blockchain share price drifted as low as 2.55p. An all-time high of 145p was hit on 8 January 2021 after an impressive two-week rally from 20p. Argo stock’s price has fallen back now, to around 80p, but that still represents a 1,011% one-year gain.Crypto miningArgo Blockchain mines Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Mining means verifying cryptocurrency transactions and adding new blocks to a blockchain ledger. As compensation for supporting the network, miners get Bitcoins or equivalents, plus a share of transaction fees paid by network users.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential… In April 2020, Argo mined 247 Bitcoin or equivalents with 730 petahash of computing power. In December 2020, 96 coins were delivered with 645 petahash of power. It is a crude measure, but the number of coins per petahash has fallen three-fold in this time period. That is not surprising – the reward for completing a block fell from 12.5 to 6.25 Bitcoin in May 2020. These “halving” events are programmed to happen every four years or so. Eventually, miners will be compensated for maintaining the network by transaction fees alone, which are assumed to grow over time.But mining is also getting tougher. Bitcoin is designed so that each block takes 10 mins or so to complete, by solving a cryptographic puzzle. More miners have joined the ranks, particularly so since Bitcoin’s price has surged. As a result, puzzle difficulty has increased. Assuming all monthly mined coins are Bitcoin, and knowing the rewards, we can estimate that 26 bocks were completed in April 2020, compared to 15 in December. Blocks completed per petahash of power fell from 0.035 in April 2020 to 0.024 in December.Argo Blockchain share priceThere is a complex interplay between rising cryptocurrency prices (a positive) driving an increase in mining difficulty (a negative) with declining rewards (due to halvings) needing to be balanced by increasing transaction fees or an increase in price to keep miners incentivised to maintain the network.Yet, Argo shares are attractive to me as a way to gain exposure to the cryptocurrency market, due to its size and efficiency as a miner. However, the price has to be right given the complications described above and the volatility and immaturity of the cryptocurrency markets.At the end of June 2020, I estimate Argo had 112 coins as digital assets. Argo mined 795 Bitcoin or their equivalents in the second half of 2020, and I estimate 64 coins were mined by 20 January. That’s 971 coins in total. Assuming they are all Bitcoin (they are not) and none have been sold (they must have been, to fund operations) that’s a £25m hoard.Argo sold 28m shares for £22.4m today, and 3m warrants and options have been exercised, taking the share count to 359m. I estimate Argo’s book value to be around £68m using the calculated digital asset value, cash from share issuance, and what I think has happened since the last balance sheet, dated end of June 2020.I get to a book value per share (BVPS) of 19p. Argo is currently trading around four times higher than my calculated BVPS. The Argo Blockchain share price is too high for me right now.

Demonstration protests death at Erie County Holding Center

first_imgCredit: Tom AnsweeneyBy Juniper CarpenterWorkers World Party members and people from the community gathered outside the Erie County Holding Center, N.Y., on March 31 in response to the March 13 death of Mikey Frears. Frears was the 36th person to die in the Holding Center since Sheriff Tim Howard took office in 2005. Demonstrators demanded that Sheriff Tim Howard resign, that addiction be treated through treatment and not through incarceration, and for abolition of the unjust prison system. The U.S. prison system continues to prey on the working class. For decades, the system has been profiting from the labor of prisoners while paying them a minuscule amount in wages and isolating them from their community. Specifically in locations like the Holding Center, individuals are held before going to trial. And any death in these holding centers or jails happens because the administration refuses to care for the people inside and dehumanizes them to the point where they deny them basic care. Speakers at the event included Workers World members Ezra Echo and Arjae Red and community members Monica Lynch and Chuck Culhane. Lynch spoke of her experience dealing with the death of her brother, Connell Burrell, who died in the Holding Center Aug. 2, 2019. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Mar 17, 2015 Farmers and ranchers continue to count on farm radio to keep them informed of current agriculture news and commodity markets.

Research shows farm radio listening habits strong throughout the U.S. starting in the morning through the afternoon and until the close of markets. Daily radio listening habits are similar throughout the year and similar from coast to coast. Research also observed programming content is a key factor to the listening decision. Farm broadcasters continue to develop and produce meaningful content that resonates with local listeners.“NAFB members go where the news is, farm broadcasters report live from multiple events every day,” says Brand. “Farm broadcasters provide current, up-to-the minute news to radio listeners on more than 1,300 stations nationwide.”Farmers and ranchers cited multiple unaided reasons for listening to the local broadcasters; including current prices, markets, convenience, local information, weather, news, local news and broadcaster.
