Chart of Hut 8

We are certainly missing some point here. We agree that Bitcoin prices are still under pressure. But the downtrend is somewhat stopped. Assuming Bitcoin prices remains at same level and Hut 8 increases the production prices, the net effect will be a positive revenues (stable per bitcoin price * increased number of mined bitcoin i.e. volume increase). So the price should have been up in that sense. One of the reasoning could be investor being skeptical about the Bitcoin prices and hence the Hut 8 stock price didn’t see the jump.
