Bitcoin miner Argo Blockchain has raised $27 million by issuing 87 million shares to ease liquidity pressures. The company’s chief executive, Peter Wall, said the combination of rising energy prices and falling bitcoin prices hit Argo’s profitability, leading to a cash crunch. Additionally, the company raised $7 million through the sale of 3,400 Antminer S19s.

According to the latest nonfarm payrolls report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), U.S. employers added 263,000 jobs in September, above expectations of 250,000. Bitcoin is down 2.64% over the last 24 hours and fell to an intraday low of $19,323.16. The largest cryptocurrency dropped alongside the traditional equity market, because the report from BLS shows the U.S. jobs market remains strong, which suggests the Federal Reserve is unlikely to pivot from its hawkish interest rate hikes. The CME FedWatch Tool now assigns a 79.6% chance for a 75 basis point rate hike in November, up from 56.5% just a week ago.
