Invest in the building blocks of digital currency, hashrate.

The trusted authority on hashrate deployment, management, and investing

A paradigm shift is taking place in the financial world. As countries continue to become more connected through technology, scarce digital currencies operating on decentralized rails are proving to be strong alternatives to paper money, which has lost its scarcity entirely.

Aurum Capital Ventures, a pioneer in the digital currency mining industry, provides forward-thinking investors with secure access to this emerging space through highly-efficient hashrate infrastructure. Confidently invest in a proven process that incorporates modular facilities and stranded renewable energy in order to extract scarce digital currencies.

Aurum is like the AWS for digital currencies

By securing and extracting scarce digital currencies like Bitcoin, Aurum is advancing the digital currency powered “internet of money".

In the 1991 whitepaper, “How to Time-Stamp a Digital Document” , authors Stuart Harber and Scott Stornett introduced the theory of using a highly-advanced computational process, along with a publicly viewable ledger system, to bring trust to digital value transfer. The core component of their system is hashrate; the digital commodity that powers the Bitcoin blockchain. Bitcoin mining is the purest definition of work, rewarding those who can produce a watt of energy and sell it efficiently at scale. A widely held belief is that hashrate is poised to become the largest financial derivative market in the world, enabling energy to be sold globally to the most efficient operators. 

On its own, hashrate is a raw, unrefined commodity. Its value comes from submitting shares to the network with the goal of mining blocks and thus being awarded compensation for further securing the blockchain. The key components to being an efficient hashrate operator come down to power rate, construction cost, deployment speed, and operational efficiency. Founded in 2016, Aurum Capital Ventures has developed a highly-profitable strategy derived from twelve successful hashrate facility deployments.

Leading the way in institutional infrastructure for digital currency mining

Aurum’s mission is to set the trajectory for the rest of the industry rather than react to competitors. By introducing debt-financing and insured yield products to enable financial freedom through Blockchain technology, Aurum continues to advance the space.

The blockchain energy revolution

In 2019, U.S. energy production exceeded consumption on a consecutive basis for the first time since 1957. This was heavily driven by an improper incentive system built around tax credits rather than efficient energy production. Digital currency mining is a synergistic component of profitable, clean energy creation, by providing innovative solutions to historic problems such as demand response and renewable intermittency.
