3 Best Crypto Stocks to Buy in April 2024, According to Analysts

Story Highlights

Investors looking for exposure to the burgeoning cryptocurrency world can consider these three stocks with high upside to boost their portfolio.

These are the 3 Best Cryptocurrency Stocks to buy in April 2024, as per Wall Street analysts. The crucial Bitcoin (BTC-USD) halving event is soon approaching, with the expected date sometime on April 19 or April 20, 2024. The halving event essentially halves the rewards that miners earn on mining Bitcoin. The event takes place every four years and is modeled to reduce the supply of bitcoin in the system and tame inflation. Another important aspect of this event is that the halving event occurs everytime when 21 million Bitcoins are mined.

After this year’s halving event, Bitcoin miners’ rewards would be cut from 6.25 Bitcoins (effective May 11, 2020) to 3.125 Bitcoins. Considering this important event, let’s look at 3 Bitcoin miners that have won analysts’ favor and carry high share price appreciation potential.

#1 Riot Platforms (NASDAQ:RIOT)

Riot Platforms is a Bitcoin mining and digital infrastructure company. It has Bitcoin mining operations and data center operations in central Texas. Additionally, the company has electrical switchgear engineering and fabrication operations in Denver, Colorado.

In March 2024, Riot produced 425 bitcoins, up 2% month-over-month, but down 39% compared to March 2023. As of March end, the company held 8,490 BTC, up 20% year-over-year. Also, Riot’s hash rate grew 18% year-over-year to 12.4 EH/s (exahash per second).

Riot aims to reach a self-mining hash rate capacity of 31 EH/s by the end of 2024, with the addition of new miners and the operation of a new facility at Corsicana. The company’s existing Bitcoin mining facility at Rockdale has a total power capacity of 700 MW and is believed to be North America’s largest single facility, as measured by developed capacity.

What is RIOT’s Stock Prediction?

Ending Thoughts

The crypto industry is set to witness one of the important events soon and everyone is talking about the impact on miners. Even so, the launch of the Spot Bitcoin ETFs has created a sort of breather for the miners, with huge inflows already registered in the ETFs. Experts are predicting that this year’s halving event will not have as much impact as in the previous years due to the spot ETFs. The aforementioned three crypto stocks are highly favored by analysts and also boast solid share price appreciation potential in the next twelve months.
