According to news, Northern Data, a German-listed mining company, and high-performance computing infrastructure provider, announced that it would acquire Bitcoin mining company Bitfield in the form of stock-for-stock. Northern Data will receive 33,000 ASIC miners of the latest generation. Northern Data will acquire up to 100% (not less than 86%) of Bitfield NV. The total value of Bitfield NV is up to approximately 400 million euros. The major shareholders of both parties have signed a binding acquisition agreement.
