Genesis Digital Assets, one of the largest industrial-scale Bitcoin mining companies in the world, has announced a strategic raise of $431 million, the largest known funding round announced by a bitcoin mining company.   

The funding round was led by Paradigm and also included, NYDIG, Stoneridge, FTX, Ribbit, Electric Capital, Skybridge, and Kingsway Capital, who invested $125 million in a previous round earlier this year. Investors in Kingsway Capital include the family offices of Paul Tudor Jones, Paul Marshall, and Winter Capital.
