Wall Street Banks are Interested in Purchasing Bitcoin Directly from Miners

  • Fearing a shortage in supply, Wall Street banks are now looking to purchase Bitcoin directly from miners.
  • With over $12 billion in inflows, U.S. Spot Bitcoin ETFs have been very successful, and as a result, the amount of Bitcoin available on exchanges has decreased.

People, the financial world is whirling—especially in relation to Bitcoin—and it’s doing so quickly. Bitcoin miners are currently being eyed by Wall Street, the big player in town, like the last piece of pizza at a party. Why? Considering that they desire a cut of the action and to do so directly from the source. This is about needing more, not just wanting more. Amidst rumors of an impending supply shortage, these banks are rushing to stockpile the digital gold as Bitcoin ETFs continue to soar in popularity.

The Rise of Bitcoin ETFs and Their Impact on Supply

So, let me explain. Since their launch on January 11, the U.S. Spot Bitcoin ETFs have generated an astounding $12 billion in revenue. Not only is this excitement contagious, but it’s also driving the price of Bitcoin to smile-at-your-phone heights, as it recently approached $73,000. The problem is that, before you can say “bull run,” this success story is sucking Bitcoin away from centralized exchanges, forcing Wall Street to knock on miners’ doors with a hat in hand in search of more.


Consider Hut 8, a prominent player in Bitcoin mining that these financial institutions have openly courted. Not only are they pursuing Hut 8’s holdings, but they are also considering their capacity to continue mining Bitcoin. It’s like asking a golden goose to lay every egg it may lay in the future in addition to the ones it has already laid. Big banks are the largest in the industry, and they’re all trying to avoid a shortage of supplies that could worsen into a full-blown crisis.

Gold Mining in the Digital Era

Let’s now add a little extra zing to this already captivating tale: the April 19 Bitcoin halving event. This isn’t just any event—it’sarevolutionary one that will cut the supply of new Bitcoin in half. We are discussing a daily drop in Bitcoin from roughly 900 to 450. If you thought the supply was limited previously, this is like trying to fit into last year’s jeans after overindulging during the holidays.

Asher Genoot, CEO of Hut 8, compared the halving to a ticking time bomb for supply problems. This development may fuel Bitcoin’s price increase even further, as demand already exceeds supply. The less Bitcoin that is available, the more people want to own some of it, which could lead prices to potentially absurd heights. It’s a classic story of less is more.

Big names in the dark aren’t the only ones involved in this frenzy. Openly increasing their Bitcoin reserves are well-known companies like MicroStrategy, whose CEO Michael Saylor led the charge by boosting their war chest by 9,245 BTC. With MicroStrategy currently holding around 1% of all Bitcoin, this is more than just playing the market—it’sshapingit. It’s a daring move that highlights Wall Street heavyweights’ increasing inclination towards the world of digital assets and represents a major shift in investment strategy toward what many believe will be the financial industry of the future.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
