What is it: This shows bitcoin's ROI vs other potential inflation hedge assets.

Why it matters: As with the historical bitcoin price table, we see bitcoin's extreme outperformance vs other assets here as well. Bitcoin's relatively small size, plus fundamental properties, yield extreme outperformance when even relatively small funds-flows find their way to BTC.

Norwegian Energy Co Aker Forms Bitcoin Subsidiary, Holds $58mm in BTC Treasury


 

Norwegian energy company, Aker ASA, has formed a new subsidiary dedicated to bitcoin. The subsidiary, Seetee, will hold all their liquid assets in BTC (currently ~$58mm worth), and will invest & participate in the Bitcoin ecosystem.

Seetee plans to spin up bitcoin-mining operations - a natural fit for the energy giant - but, also intends to develop bitcoin-related software, potentially based on Blockstream's products, and/or the Lightning network.


Aker's billionaire Chairman, Kjell Inge Røkke, explained:

We aim to in­crease [the capitalization] sig­nif­i­cant­ly over time as we gain ex­pe­ri­ence and iden­ti­fy ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties ... I'm fas­ci­nat­ed by the prospect of bitcoin Light­ning wal­lets that may en­able in­stant cred­it via mi­cro­pay­ments with­out the need to of­fer per­son­al in­for­ma­tion that my coun­ter­part can mon­e­tise with­out ap­proval or com­pen­sa­tion

Additionally, Mr. Røkke published a shareholder letter which outlines both the motivation and thought process around Seetee's & Aker's committment to Bitcoin, as well as the products and services they may develop.

tldr

  • Aker and Seetee clearly see Bitcoin as not only an investment, but as a platform and ecosystem on which to build new products and services
  • Mr. Rokke's letter addressed a number of common bitcoin criticisms
  • As Bitcoin becomes a more widely accepted asset class & platform, more and more companies that may not be directly 'financial' in nature will likely find touchpoints into the Bitcoin ecosystem.
