  • Crypto mining firm, Agro blockchain has seen a meteoric rise in its stocks in 2021
  • According to Interactive Investor, the purchase of its stocks has increased by almost 3,000 percent
  • Fear-of-Missing-Out is one of the reasons for Agro’s growth

The shares of Agro Blockchain have been on a stellar run since mid-December. During Bitcoin’s 30 days journey to its recent record high of over $40,000, the value of Agro Blockchain’s stocks grew by over 210 percent.

According to Interactive Investor, the purchase of its shares has increased by 2,993 percent since December. Over the last 12 months, the stocks of Agro has grown by 3,798 percent, making it one of the most sought-after stocks on the market.

Agro is listed as the fifth most-bought stock on the Hargreaves Lansdown’s ‘Top of the Stocks’ data. Along with its popularity, the value of Agro’s stocks has more than doubled in the first two weeks of 2021.

Although Agro has managed to keep its value intact unlike Bitcoin, it has not been a smooth ride for the crypto miners. The value of its stocks spiked from roughly 20p on Christmas Eve to an all-time high of 145p on 8 January.

For now, Argo’s shares have stabilized, changing hands at 96p at the time of writing. What is Agro Blockchain? And What is behind its sudden meteoric rise?

On the Flipside

  • Russian crypto exchange, Livecoin, has been forced to close operations after being hacked in December
  • In December, cybercriminals took over the exchange’s serves, changed cryptocurrency exchange rates, controlled back ends, nodes, and social media accounts.
  • Since the incident, users have been unable to withdraw their funds, leading many to believe that Livecoin is just pulling an exit scam.

What is Behind The Meteoric Rise of Agro?

Agro has grown so popular that Tesla is the only company whose shares attracted more attention on the trading app, Freetrade, during the first two weeks of 2021. In the same period, the buy orders for its stocks have risen by 17 percent.

In explaining Agro’s meteoric rise over the last 30 days, Dan Lane, senior analyst at Freetrade, said:

Investors nervous over equity markets flying high are turning to crypto as a kind of "millennial gold", treating it as a new safe-haven asset. And where they can't get a hold of the asset itself, they're turning to the next best thing - the miners.

According to Dan Lane, after the first spike on Christmas Eve, the social anxiety known as fear-of-missing-out or FOMO caught up with many amateur investors threw their money behind Agro, raising its interest-ratio further, and forcing yet another bull run.

While Agro Blockchain offers a simpler, more accessible solution to cloud mining, it is not the pioneer firm in this area. However, the appealing nature of the project set it up for instant success just when Bitcoin went on a protracted bull run.
