Hedging provides an insurance policy against volatility
At the heart of the ecosystem, miners must protect themselves against the market’s volatility and fluctuating operational costs. We cover their potential risks through tailor-made solutions to help protect the value of their inventory or future expected production.
Crypto miners receive most of their revenues by mining and selling cryptocurrencies, yet have to meet their electricity costs and operating expenses in fiat currency.
Unlike traditional asset classes like commodities, financial instruments that allow direct hedging are sparsely used, with less than 5% of Bitcoin miners hedging their production today.
Cryptocurrencies are more volatile than commodities. For example, the average annualized volatility for bitcoin is far higher when compared to oil, one of the most established hedging industries in the world.
