That said, there remain concerns over the company’s profitability and price performance in the near-term as the company holds roughly 5% of all BCH (Bitcoin Cash) in circulation. It is widely known that Bitmain was one of the most important factors behind the creation of Bitcoin Cash and the company sold huge quantities of BTC for BCH.

Given the bear market we are in, coupled with limited liquidity, the company might severely struggle to sell its piles of BCH without price slippage. It would be very interesting to see how investors will react to its significant balance sheet exposure BCH and the company’s ability to wither a downmarket.
