Management Commentary

In the first quarter of 2024, BTCS achieved remarkable financial success, reporting a net income of $12.3 million and earnings per share of $0.78. These figures mark new record highs for our quarterly results. Our impressive performance was fuelled by a 48% increase in the fair market value of our crypto assets throughout the quarter, as the crypto markets continued their upswing that began in late 2023. Additionally, our revenue from staking rewards, a core component of our blockchain infrastructure operations, increased in line with the market’s positive trajectory. While the crypto markets have experienced a slight pullback since March 31st, we remain optimistic about the direction of the market and our ability to strengthen our revenue-generating prospects in 2024.

Ethereum Block Building Operations

This quarter, we launched our Ethereum block-building operations under the “Builder+” brand. We have made significant progress in establishing a strong presence in the Ethereum builder market, climbing the leaderboards for daily block production. Our strategic focus is to penetrate the concentrated market dominated by three large builder organizations that collectively account for approximately 85% of daily blocks proposed. Our strategy aims to optimize the value we derive from our block-building operations by maximizing gas fees earned through increased block production while minimizing validator payments required to secure block space.

Research & Development Initiatives

We continue to invest in research and development initiatives to enhance our blockchain infrastructure operations and support our Builder+ objectives. In addition, we are advancing the development of our AI-enhanced blockchain data and analytics platform, “ChainQ,” which we anticipate launching in the second half of 2024. ChainQ is expected to provide users with unique insights into blockchain data with a user-friendly interface.

Commitment to Innovation and Growth

BTCS remains steadfast in its commitment to investing in innovations that drive growth and enhance the value we deliver to our shareholders. Our continued focus on pioneering blockchain solutions positions us well to capitalize on the evolving market dynamics and the rising adoption of crypto assets. We believe our strategic initiatives and unwavering dedication to innovation will further solidify our market position and deliver exceptional value in the upcoming quarters.
