    Riot Platforms Unveils Campaign Website Targeting Bitfarms Board Overhaul







    In a strategic move, Riot Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ: RIOT) has launched a new website, www.ABetterBitfarms.com, aimed at reconstituting the Board of Directors of Bitfarms Ltd. (NASDAQ: BITF), according to Riot Platforms. This initiative is part of Riot’s requisition for a special meeting of Bitfarms shareholders to vote on significant changes to the company’s board composition.

    Special Meeting of Shareholders

    Riot Platforms announced that the special meeting will address the election of three new director nominees: John Delaney, Amy Freedman, and Ralph Goehring. The meeting will also consider the removal of current Bitfarms Chairman Nicolas Bonta and directors Andrés Finkielsztain and Fanny Philip. The latter was recently appointed to fill a vacancy following the resignation of co-founder Emiliano Grodzki, who was voted off the board at Bitfarms’ most recent Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders.

    Website Launch and Shareholder Engagement

    The newly launched website, www.ABetterBitfarms.com, is designed to engage Bitfarms’ shareholders, employees, and other stakeholders. Visitors to the site can sign up for important updates, anonymously share their views, and learn more about Riot’s efforts to bring fresh perspectives and enhanced corporate governance to Bitfarms. Riot emphasizes the importance of electing directors with experience in overseeing significant corporate transactions and serving in executive management and public company director roles.
