Bitcoin over BTC miner shares? Hedge fund makes this prediction!


  • Hedge fund predicts that Bitcoin miners’ shares will go to zero. 
  • BTC and MSTR have carried out higher than general BTC miner shares on a YTD foundation. 

After going quick on MicroStrategy’s MSTR inventory in March, TradFi hedge fund Kerrisdale Capital is again with one other quick technique, this time concentrating on Bitcoin miner Riot Platform’s RIOT share. 

So, what’s the meat with RIOT? Kerrisdale Capital’s CIO Sahm Andrangi instructed Yahoo Finance that, 

“Our funding thesis is that this sector will not be going to be round in 5 years,’

On X (previously Twitter), the hedge fund slammed Riot additional and known as it a ‘dysfunctional hamster’ and ill-equipped to supply higher rewards to shareholders. 

‘Like other US-listed miners, $RIOT’s biz mannequin is a dysfunctional hamster wheel of money burn, which is why it loots retail shareholders with continuous ATM issuance to fund operations. Even with $BTC close to all-time highs, post-halving $RIOT’s mining ops aren’t worthwhile.’

Apparently, Andrangi was in opposition to the entire Bitcoin mining sector, termed it the ‘stupidest business model’, and predicted that it might ‘ultimately go to zero.’

Bitcoin as a hedge in opposition to BTC miners

In such a bearish state of affairs, the hedge fund maintained that BTC would all the time carry out higher in opposition to BTC miner shares. So, it might be used as a hedge in opposition to BTC miner shares – lengthy BTC, quick BTC miners. 

Nevertheless, since Kerrisdale Capital’s final quick technique in opposition to MSTR in March, the inventory has soared 37%. 

This tipped some market watchers to undertake a contrarian strategy and ‘thank’ the fund for calling BTC miners’ shares ‘bottom’ for the remainder of 2024. 

One other X consumer outrightly questioned how flawed the fund’s technique was. 

‘This genius is shorting #Bitcoin miners and $MSTR heading into the greatest crypto bull market in history.’

Nevertheless, the fund was proper on BTC outperforming miner shares. On a YTD (year-to-date) foundation, MSTR was up 147%, and BTC had 67% positive factors as of press time. 

Nevertheless, RIOT was down 37%, whereas general BTC miner shares tracker, primarily based on Valkryie Bitcoin Miner ETFs (WGMI), was modestly up solely 6% over the identical interval.

That mentioned, the WGMI has been trending larger as BTC rises. However, it stays to be seen whether or not the hedge fund’s ‘BTC miners going to zero’ projection will prove.
