Bitcoin Miner Core Scientific Rejects $1.02B Nvidia-Backed Offer

Bitcoin miner Core Scientific announced on Thursday that it has rejected an all-cash offer from CoreWeave, a specialized cloud provider backed by Nvidia. The proposal, received on June 3, aimed to acquire all of Core Scientific’s outstanding shares for $1.02 billion, or $5.75 per share. Core Scientific’s board concluded that the proposal “significantly undervalues the company” and does not serve the best interests of its shareholders.

12-Year Contracts Signed Despite Rejection

Despite rejecting the acquisition proposal, Core Scientific and CoreWeave signed a series of 12-year contracts on the same day. These agreements include Core Scientific providing CoreWeave with approximately 200 MW of infrastructure to power its high-performance computing services.

This partnership reflects the increasing demand for robust energy solutions in the crypto mining and AI technology sectors.

Growing Energy Demands in Crypto Mining and AI

The rejection of CoreWeave’s bid highlights the ongoing consolidation within the crypto mining industry, driven by the massive energy needs of these operations. Larger players and AI technology companies are targeting crypto miners to secure power supplies for their energy-intensive activities.

As the industry evolves, strategic partnerships and acquisitions are becoming common as companies seek to enhance their capabilities and market position.
