4 Bitcoin Trends to Watch in 2024 


Bitcoin's price swings make headlines, but the real power play in the crypto world is about to shift. 

If you think the only way to profit from this surging market is by buying Bitcoin itself…

Think again. 

2024 could be the year that Bitcoin miners become a hot ticket in the crypto space.

Why the sudden interest? 

Three converging trends are poised to shake up the mining landscape: 

  • Mounting pressure over energy use
  • Merger mania 
  • A wave of new regulations

Success in this volatile arena will go to the companies that aren't just focused on today's headlines but are built to thrive in a future shaped by stricter regulations, heightened environmental standards, and innovation. 

We believe that Gryphon Digital Mining (NASDAQ:GRYP) is proving that smart strategies, efficient operations, and future-focused technology can potentially be a recipe for success.

4 Trends Shaping the Bitcoin Market in 2024 and Beyond

The Bitcoin mining industry is rapidly evolving, and we believe that 2024 will be a watershed year.

Here's how crucial trends might impact the market and how Gryphon is positioned to navigate them:

1. The Race for Low Breakevens

The most competitive bitcoin miners this year have built their businesses around reducing mining costs, with energy efficiency playing a pivotal role. 

Following the fourth halving in April of this year, analysts predicted a substantial impact on American miners, potentially halving their revenues. According to Bloomberg, Bitcoin’s ‘halving’ will cost crypto miners $10 billion a year in lost revenue and ‘could well determine who comes out ahead and who gets left behind’.

Survival and success post-halving hinge on energy efficiency and cost per exahash. Gryphon (NASDAQ:GRYP) is committed to establishing an agile, energy-efficient, environmentally conscious, and highly profitable mining operation. 

According to Cantor Fitzgerald Research Methodology, Gryphon boasts some of the lowest costs among the top 14 industry leaders.

Post-halving, Gryphon expects to produce coins at an implied cost of $44,989 each, compared to Argo Blockchain (ARBK) at the highest end, producing coins for over $77,500 each, and Stronghold Digital (SDIG), producing coins for around $66,100 each.

Gryphon’s all-in cost per mined coin will not just be important in winning the battle with other Bitcoin miners, it also could give it a major advantage in what analysts now believe could become the largest-ever merger mania in the Bitcoin mining patch.

2. Energy Consumption: A Growing Focus 

The halving event means that mining Bitcoin is harder and the rewards are smaller than ever. 

And, of course, that means its energy footprint is set to expand exponentially.

That’s bad news for the industry, which has already faced a wave of critical content questioning its functionality and whether or not it's worth consuming enough electricity to power a country (or several). 

But it’s also a defining moment for the industry. [if !supportLineBreakNewLine] [endif]

Miners will inevitably face mounting pressure to adopt renewable energy sources and innovate for sustainability. Those who fail to respond to this pressure will likely face negative consequences in the form of regulatory penalties, loss of investor confidence, or reputational damage.

On the other hand, miners who embrace sustainability and are open to innovation will be well-positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for environmentally friendly cryptocurrencies.

This is why we believe Gryphon (NASDAQ:GRYP) stands out. 

First, its operations are 100% powered by renewable energy. That means that it’s not just talkin’ the talk, it’s actually walkin’ the walk. 

In fact, its commitment to green energy is at the core of its business model, and it’s one of the reasons why the company has been so successful. 

Building a large-scale mining operation usually means massive capital outlays…. 

Data centers, specialized hardware...all of it quickly runs into millions. 

Even worse, it’s often powered by dirty, expensive energy. 

Gryphon, however, takes a different tack. 

Their focus is on careful growth and sustainable and efficient operations. And their "asset-light" business model emphasizes strategic partnerships, like that with one of the largest bitcoin data centers in the world.

We believe this collaboration is game-changing in several ways:

  • Renewable advantage: Gryphon has access to 28 megawatts of clean, hydroelectric power in a New York economic opportunity zone, signaling their focus on community-friendly and sustainable practices.

  • Reduced risk, maximized efficiency: Partnering with one of the largest bitcoin data centers in the world reduces Gryphon's capital outlay, streamlines costs and gives them access to top-tier facilities. The result? Gryphon consistently ranks among the most efficient public Bitcoin miners out there.

  • ESG appeal: Gryphon's fully renewable-powered operations, commitment to carbon neutrality, and history of positive cash flow make them an attractive choice for savvy, environmentally focused investors.

Obviously, Gryphon isn't the only one who sees the need for greener mining.

Other companies are also innovating with renewable power sources, waste heat utilization, and energy-efficient hardware. 

But we believe Gryphon's approach demonstrates that you can be both environmentally responsible and fiscally successful in this arena.

3. Consolidation Through Mergers & Acquisitions

Bitcoin halvings are industry earthquakes that separate the weak from the strong. 

Less efficient miners, the ones running outdated rigs with sky-high energy bills, find themselves squeezed out, especially when profit margins get razor-thin.  

This sets the stage for industry shakeups as smaller outfits fold or get swallowed by the big players. 

But Gryphon (NASDAQ:GRYP) isn't playing defense...they're positioned to seize this moment. 

Gryphon operates cutting-edge mining equipment designed to maximize Bitcoin output while minimizing power consumption. This contributes to profitability even when block rewards shrink.

And it has strategically placed its facilities in an economically advantaged region with renewable energy. This keeps operational costs low and gives it a major leg up on the competition.

While consolidation can be painful for the industry as a whole, times of upheaval are opportunities for savvy miners. 

Gryphon's lean approach and financial strength mean they could use this to their advantage. 

Acquiring smaller, struggling miners at bargain prices could potentially fuel growth while further streamlining those already impressive efficiency metrics.

For Gryphon, halving-triggered consolidation isn’t a threat, it’s an opportunity. And it seems to us to be in a good position to grab that opportunity by both horns.

  1. Evolving Regulatory Landscape

In 2024, the regulatory landscape surrounding crypto assets is anticipated to undergo significant changes, potentially exerting a substantial impact on the mining sector. 

These regulatory shifts are expected to introduce stricter guidelines and compliance requirements to ensure the cryptocurrency ecosystem’s security and integrity.

As regulations tighten, miners will need to adapt their operations and strategies to remain compliant. 

This may involve implementing robust anti-money laundering and know-your-customer (AML/KYC) measures, adopting secure storage solutions for digital assets, and adhering to stringent reporting and disclosure obligations.

Amidst these evolving regulations, Gryphon sets itself apart as a company committed to transparency and compliance. 

Its proactive approach to carbon footprint auditing exemplifies its willingness to operate within the evolving regulatory framework. This commitment to transparency and compliance is likely to resonate with institutional investors, who are increasingly seeking investments in companies that align with their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) values.

By demonstrating a proactive and responsible approach to regulation and sustainability, Gryphon positions itself as an attractive investment opportunity for institutional investors. 

As regulations tighten in 2024, Gryphon’s commitment to transparency and compliance is likely to become even more valuable, potentially providing the company with a competitive advantage in a rapidly evolving industry.

Why Gryphon Isn't Just Another Mining Company

Gryphon’s (NASDAQ:GRYP) strategic approach sets it apart from the competition. 

We believe these advantages are likely to translate to investor success as the crypto market continues to mature:

  • Sustainable scaling: Unlike some of its competitors, Gryphon isn't obsessed with growth at any cost.  Its consistently positive gross profit and "asset-light" model, built on its key energy partnership, lowers risk and allows for expansion during volatile periods.

  • Hyper-efficiency, industry-leading break-evens:  Gryphon consistently ranks among the leaders in terms of its efficiency metrics and boasts one of the lowest costs-per-bitcoin. This contributes to profitability and an ability to outlast competitors during market downturns.

  • The green miner: Gryphon isn't just talking about sustainability, it's living it. The company's leadership in renewable energy operations and ongoing efforts to become carbon-negative align it with the increasing demand for environmentally conscious practices from consumers and investors alike.

Plus, Gryphon's seasoned management team brings an impressive level of expertise to the table.  

Investors can have confidence in a team with a track record of building large, successful Bitcoin mining operations:

  • CEO and Director Rob Chang: Extensive mining industry expertise gained from tenure at Riot Blockchain and Cantor Fitzgerald.
  • CFO Sim Salzman: Played a key role in the explosive growth of Marathon Digital Holdings.
  • Chief Technical Advisor Chris Ensey: Deep operational and strategic knowledge from his leadership roles at Riot Blockchain.
  • Board Chairperson Brittany Kaiser: An internationally recognized blockchain and digital assets expert. 

We believe Gryphon's strengths position it for success amidst both a resurgent Bitcoin market and an evolving regulatory and technological landscape. 

With an eye towards long-term sustainability and efficient operations, investors should strongly consider this publicly traded company as a compelling part of their crypto strategy.
