To survive the ongoing difficult market, Argo took the decision to sell Helios to Galaxy Digital.
For $65 million, the digital asset and blockchain leader bought Argo’s spearhead.
Argo has already been cashing its Bitcoin to reduce the credit with Galaxy.
Galaxy will supply Argo with $35 million finance to help the English society to reduce its debt.
The new agreement reduces the debt by $41 million.
Argo CEO said:
“Staying at Helios will also allow us to continue to access power through the Texas grid and participate in the ancillary services, which are provided by Ercot”.
Due to Helio’s sell, Argo Blockchain, on Dec. 27 2022, was forced to suspend trading of its American Depositary Shares on Nasdaq.
