Expanding Blockchain Infrastructure Operations
Blockchain protocols utilizing Proof-of-Stake (“PoS”) consensus algorithms are environmentally-friendly alternatives to Proof-of-Work (“PoW”) consensus mechanisms used predominantly by Bitcoin. Through its blockchain infrastructure platform BTCS secures PoS blockchain networks by processing and validating transactions on those chains.

BTCS continued its expansion with the second quarter launch of a new stake pool on Cardano, a decentralized PoS blockchain launched by Ethereum co-founder, Charles Hoskinson. BTCS deployed and is operating its own Cardano network node with a set amount of Cardano tokens (“ADA”).

BTCS has completed the technical work and testing required to begin securing additional blockchain networks.

BTCS’ blockchain infrastructure platform represents a high profit margin component of the Company’s business model. BTCS plans to expand this part of the business by identifying and securing additional disruptive blockchain protocols, along with continuing development of its Staking-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) product offering.

Digital Asset Update
Establishing positions in key digital assets is a core part of the Company's business plan. Through timely purchases of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies, BTCS has substantially grown its digital assets over the last year. As of June 30, 2021, the FMV of the Company's digital asset holdings increased 2,013% YoY to $21.5 million. As of August 5, 2021, the Company's digital asset holdings had a FMV of approximately $26.5 million.

One of our focuses is on innovative blockchain protocols, such as a Polkadot and Solana. Nearly 500 projects are being built on Polkadot currently, while there is $1.8 billion in Total Value Locked (“TVL”) in the Solana Decentralized Finance (“DeFi”) ecosystem. Actively monitoring fundamental and technical developments helps us navigate our holdings.

Management Commentary
“As we build on our recent successes and prepare to up-list the Company to a senior exchange, we took key steps in the second quarter to strengthen our board and management team,” stated Charles Allen, Chief Executive Officer of BTCS.
“We will continue to selectively grow our digital holdings, while also capitalize on opportunities to realize gains as they become available. Our blockchain infrastructure operations, initially launched in the first quarter, are expected to be a key revenue driver moving forward. Lastly, development of our proprietary data analytics platform is progressing well – in the coming quarter, we will extend private beta invites to test out the platform.”

Mr. Allen concluded, “On behalf of our management team, I want to personally thank our shareholders for their continued support. I look forward to sharing more of our successes in the coming weeks and months.”
