Overview



BTCS is an early entrant within the Digital Asset market and one of many first U.S.
publicly-traded firms to give attention to Digital Property and blockchain
applied sciences. By our blockchain-infrastructure operations, we safe
disruptive next-generation blockchains and function validator nodes on numerous
proof of stake-based blockchain networks, incomes rewards of extra Digital
Property by actively validating transactions on the networks. Whereas this course of
is much like Bitcoin mining the consensus mechanism is completely different. Now we're
constructing on the muse of our pre-established infrastructure with the
growth of a Digital Asset Platform. The primary characteristic of the dashboard,
which is an open beta, permits customers to guage their Digital Asset portfolios
from a number of exchanges on a single platform. We are also creating and plan to
combine into the platform a Staking-as-a-Service characteristic that, as soon as launched,
will enable customers to take part in asset leveraging by way of securing blockchain
protocols.



Blockchain Infrastructure



Blockchain infrastructure operations can broadly be outlined as incomes a reward
for securing a blockchain by validating transactions on that blockchain. There
are presently two most important consensus mechanisms used to safe blockchains: i)
proof-of-work ("PoW"), during which nodes dedicate computational assets, and ii)
proof-of-stake ("PoS"), during which nodes dedicate monetary assets. The
intention behind each PoW and PoS is to make it virtually unimaginable for any
single malicious actor to have sufficient computational energy or possession stake to
efficiently assault the blockchain.



Within the case of PoW, a miner does "work" utilizing energy-consuming computer systems and is
rewarded for this "work" with Digital Property. The miner, usually by way of swimming pools
operating nodes, validates transactions on the blockchain, primarily changing
electrical energy and computing energy right into a digital forex reward comprised of
transaction charges and newly-minted Digital Property. Bitcoin is an instance of PoW
and is by far the biggest and most safe PoW blockchain.



PoS miners, also known as validators in PoS methods, actively function
nodes and validate transactions. Validators are required to stake holdings of a
digital forex to take part within the consensus algorithm and are rewarded in
tokens for aligning conduct with the foundations of the algorithm. Dangerous conduct can
be penalized by "slashing" the validator's holdings and/or rewards. Validators
may also be faraway from the community for breaking the foundations. In poor health-intentioned
conduct amongst validators is discouraged, permitting for the blockchain to be
correctly maintained and secured. In comparison with PoW, PoS blockchains require much less
power.



Relying on the PoS blockchain protocol, native token holders have the
alternative to leverage their asset holdings by both operating their very own
validator ("Validating") or delegating their rights to a validator ("Delegating"
or "Staking"). With Delegating or Staking, token holders not directly take part
in blockchain networks by sustaining management of their non-public keys and
delegating their tokens to an present validator. Subsequently, Delegating is extra
akin to assigning voting rights of inventory to a different particular person or entity through an influence
of lawyer. With Validating, a node operator and token holder mix tokens in
order to enhance the node's collective odds of incomes token rewards for
efficiently validating new transactions and blocks on the community. With each
Delegating and Validating, the validator operators earn a charge for offering the
technical capabilities of operating a node 24/7 that requires common, energetic
upkeep and trade experience.



BTCS makes use of its blockchain infrastructure to function validator nodes on numerous
proof of stake-based blockchain networks. In reference to the validation of
transactions occurring on these blockchain networks, BTCS will stake the Digital
Property native to these blockchains on the validator nodes it operates so as
to earn staking rewards. BTCS may use its blockchain infrastructure to
validate and signal transactions on behalf of shoppers that delegate their
validation and voting rights to BTCS-operated validator nodes (known as
"Staking-as-a-Service" or "SaaS").



A SaaS supplier maintains an energetic function in validating transactions on a given
PoS community on behalf of its delegators by (1) arranging transactions utilizing
software program to stake the related Digital Property; (2) monitoring the nodes it's
working to make sure they continue to be on-line, able to validate transactions; and (3)
verifying transactions on the community when required to earn rewards.



21







Aside from Ethereum, the entire Firm's Digital Asset holdings are in tokens
secured by PoS or related consensus mechanisms that enable for Delegating and
asset leveraging. The Firm is presently actively working validator nodes on
Ethereum's Beacon Chain, Cosmos, Kava, Tezos, Avalanche, Kusama, Polygon and
Cardano. The Firm has additionally staked the next tokens Polkadot, Algorand,
Axie Infinity and Solana. Constructing on that base, the Firm plans to broaden its
PoS operations to safe different disruptive blockchain protocols that additionally enable
for delegating.



The Firm believes its blockchain infrastructure efforts will type the core
progress for its Digital Asset Platform. The Firm makes use of cloud infrastructure
to function and run its validator nodes and doesn't preserve its personal bodily
belongings, however could add this infrastructure sooner or later.



The Firm presently holds the next Digital Property that are core to its
blockchain infrastructure efforts. The desk additionally contains Bitcoin which isn't
core to our infrastructure operations.

Validator Income


The rise in income in the course of the 2022 Quarter and 2022 Interval as in comparison with
the 2021 Quarter and 2021 Interval is from our blockchain infrastructure
validating income. We imagine revenues will lower for the interval ending
September 30, 2022 and probably for the rest of 2022 because of
decline in market costs of the Digital Property now we have earned and/or bought.




Value of Revenues



The rise in price of revenues is because of our blockchain infrastructure
validating working prices, together with, net service internet hosting charges, and money and
stock-based compensation associated to companies offered by distributors. We imagine our
price of revenues will improve as we proceed to ramp up our enterprise. Nonetheless,
we imagine gross margin will enhance as we add scale to our blockchain
infrastructure operations and scale back prices because of elevated operational
efficiencies, resulting in improved gross income.



Working Bills


The rise in working bills within the 2022 Quarter is primarily as a result of
$8.9 million impairment loss on Digital Property ("Digital Asset Impairment") in
the 2022 Quarter, in comparison with solely $2.3 million Digital Asset Impairment within the
2021 Quarter. That is partially offset by the $1.6 million non-cash contingent
bonuses granted to workers and our non-employee administrators in the course of the 2021
Quarter for the achievement of efficiency milestones.



The rise in working bills within the 2022 Interval is primarily as a result of
$12.2 million Digital Asset Impairment within the 2022 Interval, in comparison with solely $3.6
million Digital Asset Impairment within the 2021 Interval. That is partially offset by
the $8.7 million non-cash contingent bonuses granted to workers and our
non-employee administrators in the course of the 2021 Interval for the achievement of efficiency
milestones.



We imagine working bills will stay constant because the Firm continues to
make the most of equity-based bonus incentives as a core a part of its compensation
technique. Nonetheless, volatility within the Digital Asset markets will topic the
Firm to the opportunity of extra impairment prices on its Digital
Asset
holdings.


The Firm is evaluating extra alternatives to scale back prices. As a part of
our price reducing measures, in June 2022, the Board of Administrators decreased all
director charges for 2022 from $50,000 to $25,000 and decreased the Audit,
Compensation and Nominating and Company Governance committee chair charges for
2022 to $5,000. Moreover, Charles Allen and Michal Handerhan, the Firm's
Chief Government Officer and Chief Working Officer, respectively, agreed to
forfeit $25,000 of their annual base salaries for 2022. Collectively, these
cost-cutting measures will lead to price financial savings of roughly $141,000,
which the Firm will see primarily within the subsequent two quarters.



Different Revenue (Bills)


The rise in different revenue for the intervals reported was primarily as a result of
lower within the truthful worth of warrant liabilities. This non-cash expense is
pushed by the worth of our inventory value on the finish of every quarter which we
can not predict.



Internet loss


The rise in our internet loss for the intervals reported was primarily as a result of
improve in working bills and improve in different revenue (expense) as
mentioned above. We imagine that our internet loss will improve because the Firm
incurs elevated prices associated to the event of its Digital Asset Platform
and incurs extra Digital Asset Impairment losses as a result of volatility in
the
Digital Asset markets.

Liquidity and Capital Assets



ATM Financing

time-to-time by way of H.C. Wainwright, shares of the Firm's Frequent Inventory

shares of Frequent Inventory underneath the ATM Settlement for combination whole gross

The Firm's monetary statements have been ready assuming that it's going to
proceed as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations,
realization of belongings, and liquidation of liabilities within the regular course of
enterprise. Liquidity is the power of an organization to generate funds to help its
present and future operations, fulfill its obligations, and in any other case function on
an ongoing foundation. At June 30, 2022, the Firm had roughly $2.5 million
of liquid Digital Property (i.e. non-staked) and $3.2 million of money.



We view our Digital Property as long-term holdings and we don't plan to interact in
common buying and selling of Digital Property. Throughout occasions of instability out there of
Digital Property, we could not be capable of promote our Digital Property at affordable
costs or in any respect. Because of this, our Digital Property could not be capable of function a
supply of liquidity for us to the identical extent as money and money equivalents.



As of August 8, 2022, the Firm had roughly $3.2 million of money and the
truthful market worth of the Firm's liquid Digital Property was roughly $4.4
million, which excludes $14.8 million of staked Ethereum. The Firm has no
excellent debt. As of August 8, 2022, the Firm additionally has roughly $17.7
million accessible underneath the On the Market Providing Settlement underneath the Kind S-3
child shelf guidelines, though, the quantity that we could increase underneath the Kind S-3 could
improve or lower based mostly upon our then inventory value. The Firm believes that
the present money and liquid Digital Property held by us, along with the funds
accessible to the Firm from the issuance of extra inventory by way of the ATM
Settlement, present adequate liquidity to satisfy working capital necessities,
anticipated capital expenditures and contractual obligations for not less than the
subsequent twelve months.

Digital Property for our blockchain infrastructure operations.



Money offered by financing actions was $10.0 million in the course of the six months
ended June 30, 2022 in comparison with $14.2 million for the six months ended June 30,
2021. The money inflows from financing actions have been primarily from proceeds
from the Frequent Inventory bought pursuant to the ATM Settlement ($10.6 million). This
was partially offset by a one-time return of capital distribution of $635,000
made to file holders as of March 17, 2022. The Firm has plans to proceed
