The bear market has been annoying for miners this year and Grayscale believes that crypto winters could provide unique investment opportunities.

The Grayscale investment thesis states that:

With the bitcoin price dropping dramatically, leveraged miners have come under significant pressure on their operating margins. In the coming months, we expect some miners to have to liquidate their mining equipment. We believe that GDIO will have the opportunity to purchase mining equipment at distressed levels and mine Bitcoin profitably in the future.

For example, last summer crypto miner Cleanspark explained that the downturn in the cryptocurrency economy has led to “unprecedented opportunities.” At the end of June, a report indicated that $4 billion in bitcoin mining loans was in distress. Moreover, in September, Jihan Wu subsidiary Bitdeer launched a $250 million fund to help distressed miners. Michael Sonnenchin, CEO of Grayscale says his company has an advantage over the rest that allows Grayscale to find opportunities in the crypto winter cycle.

“Greyscale’s unique position at the center of the cryptocurrency ecosystem allows us to create offerings that allow investors to put capital to work through various market cycles,” said Sonnenshyn during the announcement. “Our team has long been committed to lowering the barrier to investing in the cryptocurrency ecosystem – from direct exposure to digital assets, to diverse thematic products, and now infrastructure through GDIO.”
