Argo Blockchain Struggles

The company is among the platforms which might have felt the density of the 2022 bear market. The company reported a negative cash flow by losing over 50% of its stock prices. It also noted declining productivity in December. Additionally, the platform suspended trading activities on Nasdaq, stating that it was to assess crucial information regarding its financial performance. The financial difficulties drove the firm into a financial emergency as it had nearly $80 million in debt. It led to the platform selling its Helios mining facility to Galaxy for $65 million to prevent it from filing for bankruptcy.

Nonetheless, the platform revealed the departure of Argo board Sarah Gow due to health concerns. Gow has been serving the platform since July 2021.

Following Well’s departure, he noted that he is pleased to have led the successful Galaxy deal.

It has been a great privilege to have led the company over the past three years. I am pleased to have led the recent successful Galaxy deal. I thank my colleagues at Argo for their support, dedication, and enthusiasm in driving Argo forward.
