BitFuFu to go public on Nasdaq following merger with Arisz Acquisition

BitFuFu, a leading cryptocurrency mining company, has announced its intention to become a publicly traded entity on the Nasdaq stock exchange following a merger with Arisz Acquisition Corp. 

This development marks a significant milestone in the digital asset mining industry, with the merger receiving approval from the shareholders of both companies on Feb. 28, 2024. The newly formed entity, BitFuFu Inc., is set to begin trading under the ticker symbols “FUFU” for its Class A ordinary shares and “FUFUW” for its warrants starting March 1, 2024.

BitFuFu had previously received investment from Bitmain and established an exclusive strategic partnership dedicated to cloud mining. Per the announcement, with the recent funding, the firm aims to increase its global reach within the digital asset sector, utilizing its advanced technological platform and mining machinery.

Leo Lu, the founder and CEO of BitFuFu, expressed his gratitude towards the stakeholders for their support in reaching this significant milestone. He highlighted the company’s dedication to corporate governance and transparency as it transitions into a publicly listed entity. The funds from this transaction will be utilized to enhance BitFuFu’s cloud-mining, self-mining, and miner-hosting services.

Echo Hindle-Yang, the Chairwoman and CEO of Arisz Acquisition Corp., emphasized the importance of this Nasdaq listing in strengthening BitFuFu’s market position through its innovative technology and strategic partnership with Bitmain.

“Under the leadership of Leo, the BitFuFu team is poised to enhance its market dominance, thanks to its industry-leading technology platform and advanced mining machines, uniquely supplied by Bitmain as their exclusive strategic partner,” she added.

BitFuFu operates through a business model that includes cloud mining, miner hosting, and self-mining. This approach positions the company to manage market volatility efficiently and play a role in integrating the global digital asset mining industry. This move was initially revealed in documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), indicating BitFuFu’s plans to go public under the “FUFU” ticker upon finalizing the merger with Arisz Acquisition Corp.

Yet, not all companies involved in cryptocurrency have experienced a seamless transition to public markets. Webull Corporation, a digital investment brokerage, faced hurdles in its attempts to list publicly due to its cryptocurrency services. The firm is now aiming for a Nasdaq listing via a merger with SPAC SK Growth Opportunities Corp., following several unsuccessful attempts at an Initial Public Offering (IPO), which were hindered by regulatory challenges associated with its crypto offerings.
