Seetee Founder Makes Bitcoin Bull Case

Aker ASA, a Norwegian holding company that is majority owned by billionaire Kjell Inge Røkke, has announced the formation of a new company called Seetee in a letter to shareholders. The company will focus on investing in Bitcoin-focused projects and will hold all liquid assets in bitcoin.

“First, we will use bitcoin as our trea­sury as­set and join the community,” the letter, penned by Røkke, reads. “In Bit­coin speak, we will be hodlers… Sec­ond, See­tee will es­tab­lish min­ing op­er­a­tions that trans­fer strand­ed or in­ter­mit­tent elec­tric­i­ty with­out sta­ble de­mand lo­cal­ly — wind, so­lar, hy­dro pow­er — to eco­nom­ic as­sets that can be used any­where. Bit­coin is, in our eyes, a load-bal­anc­ing eco­nom­ic bat­tery, and bat­ter­ies are es­sen­tial to the en­er­gy tran­si­tion re­quired to reach the tar­gets of the Paris Agreement…Third, we will build and in­vest in projects and companies in Bit­coin’s ecosystem. This is where our true pas­sion is!”
