Stocks discussed: (NYSE:V) (NasdaqGS:OSTK) (LSE:ARB)

Bitcoin (BTC) has been gradually ascending over the past day or so and is trading, at press time, for about $36,570, according to data from CoinMarketCap. More notable, perhaps, is Ether (ETH), which has again set a new all-time high with a trading price of $1,550 at press time. Though Bitcoin is still comfortably the top cryptocurrency in terms of market cap and trading price, Ether has outperformed it so far this year by nearly doubling in value.

Visa (NYSE:V) has announced a partnership with First Boulevard, described in the press release as "a digitally native neobank focused on building generational wealth for the Black community." The latter will pilot Visa's new suite of crypto APIs, allowing "customers to purchase, custody and trade digital assets held by Anchorage, a federally chartered digital asset bank." Jack Forestell, Chief Product Officer, Visa, explained:

"We set out to make Visa the bridge between digital currencies and our global network of 70 million merchants and today we are the leading network for crypto wallets with 35 crypto platforms choosing to issue with Visa. With this pilot program, we want to extend the value of Visa to our neobank and financial institution clients by providing an easy bridge to crypto assets and blockchain networks."

tZERO, the blockchain arm of Overstock.com (NasdaqGS:OSTK) has signed a technology integration agreement with digital transfer agent Vertalo. According to the press release, Vertalo "enables the issuance and management of compliant digital securities and connects broker-dealers, issuers, custodians, and exchanges through its B2B SaaS platform." tZERO CEO Saum Noursalehi, commented:

"We are excited to integrate Vertalo into the tZERO ecosystem. Issuers that have tokenized with Vertalo will now have private digital securities compatible with our trading ecosystem, providing them a path to secondary liquidity."

Argo Blockchain (LSE:ARB) has reported operational results for January 2021, revealing that it mined 93 bitcoins during the month. The company also reports mining revenue of £2.48 million ($3.38 million USD), generated at an average monthly mining margin of approximately 71 percent for January. Additionally, Argo announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Argo Innovations Labs Inc., has signed a Share Purchase Agreement with Canadian data centre provider GPU.one, for the strategic purchase of the two data centres in Quebec. Boasting 20MW of power capacity, this "will provide Argo with long term stability and direct control over the facilities." Argo's CEO Peter Wall said:

"I am thrilled that Argo has delivered our best month in the company's history in both mining revenue and profits. The year has started off very strong. I'm also pleased we have signed the Share Purchase Agreement with GPU.one, an important step in us closing this transaction, and taking over those facilities ourselves."
