Marathon Digital joins S&P’s SmallCap index.

Since S&P Global included Marathon Digital, a well-known Bitcoin mining company, in its SmallCap 600 index, the company has garnered media attention. The company’s stock value increased significantly as a result of the announcement; on Monday, it increased by 18%.

Over the weekend, estimates indicate that Marathon’s market capitalization grew by $800 million, which is a noteworthy accomplishment for the digital asset company. Its market capitalization has grown from $4.7 billion to $5.5 billion as a result.

After the Bitcoin mining company was added to the list on Friday, its shares started to rise rapidly and ended the day at $20. An index of small-cap businesses, the SmallCap 600, is chosen by a number of criteria, including recent profitability. Small-cap firms are defined as those with a market capitalization between $1 billion and $6.7 billion.

Additionally, Marathon has submitted an 8-K to the SEC detailing the salaries of a few of its top executives.

In the contract, the corporation committed to offering its employees long-term incentives as part of its LTIP awards. Since the LTIP awards’ value is directly correlated with the company’s stock price, they serve to align the interests of the company’s leaders with those of its shareholders.

Three of the company’s executives—CEO Fred Thiel, CFO Salman Khan, and General Counsel Zabi Nowaid—are receiving the reward. It is anticipated that this action will improve morale and bring the executives’ interests into line with those of the company’s investors.
