Lead Plaintiff motion deadline
  • $HUT investor filed the claim vs. Hut 8 Corp. for hiding important information in the merger with USBTC, which later led to thier losses.
  • In January, J Capital's exposing report sent $HUT lower by 23%, wiping out over $190M+ shareholder value.
On January 18, 2024, J Capital Research published a report alleging Hut 8’s (HUT) merger with USBTC was premised on several misstatements, including:
  • USBTC had an “undisclosed related party” as one of its largest shareholders,
  • USBTC’s core asset, the King Mountain JV, “has historically failed to provide energy and high-speed internet,”
  • The company had misstated certain finances of the King Mountain JV by failing to account for certain interest expenses.
  • Citing individuals “highly familiar” with USBTC, the report stated that, without the Merger, USBTC would have undergone bankruptcy and that USBTC had a value estimated to be 70% less than the approximately $745 million that Hut 8 paid to acquire it.
On this news, $HUT fell 23.3% and lost over $192 million of its market cap, seriously damaging shareholders.

In November 2023, Hut 8 was formed in the merger of Hut 8 Mining Corp. and U.S. Data Mining Group, Inc. d/b/a US Bitcoin Corp. (USBTC). USBTC held a 50% interest in a JV bitcoin mining facility, located in King Mountain, Texas, which was acquired in the Merger.

Considering the facts in the report, Investors might suspect Hut 8 of hiding material facts about the business, which consequently led to their losses, when the truth was discovered.
