Tokens.com’s philosophy is to bring the fastest growing areas of crypto and blockchain to public market investors. Management has identified crypto staking and the metaverse as the two most exciting and fastest growing areas in blockchain. Our strategy is to continue to buy assets in these sectors and use technology to earn revenue from those assets.
During Q3, there was a pronounced recovery in cryptocurrency markets from the correction experienced during Q2. In addition, the one-time expenses incurred during Q2 related to the legal and administrative costs of going public were behind us. Management was also successful in keeping operating and overhead costs low.
During Q3, Tokens.com management was successful in completing several initiatives, the most significant being entering into an LOI to purchase 50% of Metaverse Group, which closed on October 15th. Management is excited about this transaction and the growth potential of being a landlord in the metaverse. We look forward to working with Metaverse Group to continue to expand its business model of acquiring top digital NFT based real estate in various metaverses.
As a result of the increased demand for our common shares, the Company announced a private placement financing on October 25, which is described in more detail below. The proceeds from this financing, scheduled to close in mid-November, will be to grow our two main areas of focus – crypto staking and, through Metaverse Group, accumulate more NFT based metaverse assets.
Q3 was our second quarter as a public company and our first full quarter with the proceeds from our April 2021 fundraise fully deployed. Tokens.com benefited significantly from the rebound in cryptocurrencies during Q3 as is evidenced by the token price appreciation of the top 5 cryptocurrencies held by the Company during Q3, which has continued into Q4 as follows:
Management is confident that the digital assets it owns are linked to the macro growth in DeFi and NFTs. Consequently, we view the potential for ongoing appreciation of these assets to be high.
Included in operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, is a one-time listing expense of $1,108,883 incurred during Q2.
Tokens.com marks its digital asset inventory to market at the end of every quarter and the positive revaluation of digital assets of $6.3 million was reflective of the crypto market rebound from its correction in Q2.
“Tokens.com continues to compound its revenue by re-staking the tokens it receives as revenue to create higher returns on capital. We believe this strategy will allow us to grow our digital asset inventory and position it for positive and compounding appreciation as the market continues to grow,” said Andrew Kiguel, CEO. “Our digital assets, linked to the growth of DeFi and NFT applications, have the potential to appreciate further over the next several years. Through staking, we earn additional tokens daily resulting in the organic growth of our digital assets,” added Kiguel.
