CEO | Kryptovault

Kjetil Hove Pettersen

Kjetil has his background from tech and the IT industry. He is the CEO and founder of Kryptovault, a datacenter company started in Norway in 2017, primarily to begin large-scale Bitcoin mining operations. During this time, the company grew from 0 to having more than €45 million in annual turnover in the span of four years and was included in the FT1000 Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies 2023 ranking.

Kjetil is a strong believer in Bitcoin and the future potential of this new asset class. He and his team has been working hard to reconcile this new blockchain economy with traditional finance and how the industry can fit into the established system (tax, legislation, electrical grid requirements, etc).

Kjetil was recently interviewed in a German TV documentary (Leschs Kosmos) which was partially about Kryptovault’s mining activities in Northern Norway.
