  • Deus X is a family office-backed investment firm with Tim Grant as CEO and $1 billion in assets. Grant previously held many executive roles, including Head of EMEA at Mike Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital (GLXY), CEO of SIX Digital Exchange, and also worked at TradFi giant UBS.

    “Mining will form a critical part of our complementary portfolio of companies as we seek to find innovative businesses that can contribute to and support a financial system that is free of silos and welcomes low barriers to entry for the benefit of everyone,” Grant said in the statement.

    The partnership comes at a time when bitcoin mining companies are facing a tough competition ahead of this year's bitcoin halving event, which will see BTC rewards for mining cut in half. To stay profitable post-halving, mining firms will seek to solidify their position with sound strategy and funding.

    Fabiano Consulting was formed last year by former cryptocurrency financial services firm Galaxy Digital’s (GLXY) head of mining, Amanda Fabiano, who was previously the director of bitcoin mining at Fidelity Investments.

    "Fabiano Consulting will provide valuable expertise in evaluating new potential investments in the fast expanding bitcoin mining industry while exploring opportunities to develop trading, treasury and financing solutions within Deus X’s existing portfolio businesses, such as Alpha Lab 40," according to the statement.
