Latest SPAC News: Bitdeer debuts fund targeting distressed miners, Harley-Davidson EV unit LiveWire’s shares rise 24%


Crypto Tycoon’s Bitdeer Debuts Fund Targeting Distressed Miners

Chinese crypto billionaire Jihan Wu is setting up a $250 million fund to buy distressed assets from Bitcoin miners, as the industry reels from this year’s steep drop in digital-asset prices.

Wu’s Bitdeer Technologies Holding Co. plans to invest $50 million as part of a junior tranche, meaning the firm’s investment will be first at risk if the fund loses money. It aims to raise another $200 million from outside investors such as family offices, venture capital firms, alternative investment funds and other mining companies, a representative from Bitdeer told Bloomberg News.

Singapore-based Bitdeer has emerged as a major Bitcoin miner, with facilities across the US and Norway. Last November, the firm filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission to go public through a $4 billion business combination with Blue Safari (NASDAQ:BSGA), which was originally set to be completed on June 14. The deal has since been pushed back, with Bitdeer filing this month for a second extension that would delay the closing until Dec. 14.
