Why Are Crypto Mining Stocks MARA, RIOT, HUT Up Today?


  • Crypto mining stocks are climbing alongside Bitcoin (BTC-USD).
  • This comes as investors seek alternatives to traditional investments.
  • The catalyst that kicked this off is the First Republic Bank (FRC) stock crash.

Crypto mining stocks are on the move Wednesday, and it looks like investors have Bitcoin (BTC-USD) to thank for the recent rally.

The price of Bitcoin is on the rise today, and that has crypto mining stocks gaining as well. As of this writing, BTC was up 9.1% over the prior 24-hour period. That comes with renewed interest in the token as trading volume increased 63.7% over the previous 24 hours.

The rise of BTC appears connected to First Republic Bank (NYSE:FRC) stock crashing. The stock plummeted on Tuesday as some experts believe it will go into government receivership. This appears to be behind the Bitcoin gains as traders seek alternative investments.

Seeing as Bitcoin is the leader of cryptos, its movement can have a wide-reaching effect. That includes rallying shares of crypto mining stock, many of which specifically mine BTC tokens. Let’s check out what’s happening with them below!
