BCause LLC has made an official announcement about their partnership with ASGARD Partners & Co. to help raise a capital of $25 million in equity for their Series B funding. The deal will make ASGARD their exclusive Capital Market Advisors.
Notably, for their Series A equity round, SBI Holdings had agreed to acquire a 40% holding in BCause LLC and to provide significant amounts of crypto-currency mining gear to be co-located at Bcause’s mining operations in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Following the launch of its cryptocurrency mining facility in February, BCause is in the process of establishing a spot market and, pending regulatory approval, a derivatives exchange and clearinghouse.
BCause has shown interest in launching its spot market this summer. They have already submitted a filing with the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission to become a designated Contract Market (DCM). Additionally, they are also finalizing submission to become a derivatives clearing organization (DCO).
Regarding this new development, the CEO of BCause said:
“We're extremely pleased with our progress to date and the talented team we've been assembling. Demand for our mining services has been beyond expectations. This Series B round will help bring us to the next level in executing on our ambitious plans. It's a pleasure to partner with ASGARD*, which already has a deep understanding of, and enthusiasm for, our business model.”
