This news release constitutes a “designated news release” for the purposes of the Company’s prospectus supplement dated February 2, 2021 to its short form base shelf prospectus dated January 27, 2021.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – February 15, 2022) –  HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSXV: HIVE) (Nasdaq: HIVE) (FSE: HBF) (the “Company” or “HIVE”) is pleased to announce a record earnings report for the third quarter ended December 31, 2021 (all amounts in US dollars, unless otherwise indicated).

For the three-month period, revenue rose to $68.2 million, up 30% compared with last quarter, and 397% since the same quarter last year. Net income reached $64.2 million, up 7% from last quarter, and 273% since the prior year.

Hive’s combined liquid BTC and ETH had a gross value of $168 million up 11x from $15 million a year ago ended December 31, 2020. HIVE ended the current December quarter holding 1,813 Bitcoin (“BTC”) worth $83.1 million and 23,290 Ether (“ETH”) worth $84.9 million.

Frank Holmes, HIVE’s Executive Chairman, stated “We wish to again thank our loyal shareholders for believing in our vision to mine both Ethereum and Bitcoin to generate robust cash flow returns on invested capital and we believe our results continue to validate the significant contribution to our strategy to mine both BTC and ETH and HODL as many coins as possible.”

Darcy Daubaras, HIVE’s CFO said “A year ago, we made the conscious decision not to sell our mined cryptocurrency or undertake an expensive financing when brokers were offering capital at 20% discounts or encouraging us to borrow against our BTC and ETH assets at a 12% cost of capital in the scramble by crypto mining companies to purchase more ASIC chips. HIVE’s modest equity funding’s were done at prevailing market prices or premiums to the stock price, and this has helped us generate the highest robust returns on invested capital relative to our peers.”

Q3 Quarterly Highlights- December 31, 2021

  • Generated revenue from digital currency mining of $68.2 million, with a gross mining margin[1] of $61.7 million
  • Mined 697 Bitcoin and over 7,126 Ethereum during the three-month period ended December 31, 2021
  • Earned net income of $64.2 million for the period
  • Working capital increased by $141.2 million during the three-month period ended December 31, 2021
  • Digital currency assets of $168.1 million, as at December 31, 2021

Q3 F2022 Financial Review

For the three months ended December 31, 2021, revenue from digital currency mining was $68.2 million, an increase of approximately 397% from the prior year primarily due to an increase in cryptocurrency prices, the increased production of Bitcoin as a result of the Quebec and Atlantic facility acquisition and the purchase of miners for those facilities.

Gross mining margin1 during the period was $61.7 million, or 90% of income from digital currency mining, compared to $10.6 million, or 78% of income from digital currency mining, in the same period in the prior year. The Company’s gross mining margin from digital currency mining is partially dependent on external network factors including mining difficulty, the amount of digital currency rewards and fees it receives for mining, as well as the market price of digital currencies.

Net income during the quarter ended December 31, 2021, was $64.2 million, or $0.17 per share, compared to $17.2 million, or $0.05 per share, the same period last year. The improvement was driven primarily by the improvement in gross mining margin1, higher Ethereum and Bitcoin prices, gains on the sale of digital currencies, and foreign exchange.

About HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd.

HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. went public in 2017 as the first cryptocurrency mining company with a green energy and ESG strategy.

HIVE is a growth-oriented technology stock in the emergent blockchain industry. As a company whose shares trade on a major stock exchange, we are building a bridge between the digital currency and blockchain sector and traditional capital markets. HIVE owns state-of-the-art, green energy-powered data centre facilities in Canada, Sweden, and Iceland, where we source only green energy to mine on the cloud and HODL both Ethereum and Bitcoin. Since the beginning of 2021, HIVE has held in secure storage the majority of its ETH and BTC coin mining rewards. Our shares provide investors with exposure to the operating margins of digital currency mining, as well as a portfolio of cryptocurrencies such as ETH and BTC. Because HIVE also owns hard assets such as data centers and advanced multi-use servers, we believe our shares offer investors an attractive way to gain exposure to the cryptocurrency space. HIVE traded over 2 billion shares in 2020.

FreeBnk debuts the ‘Zillow’ of tokenized Real-World Assets

Published

freebnk-debuts-the-‘zillow’-of-tokenized-real-world-assets

FreeBnk, the fintech platform offering affordable financial services for crypto investors, launches its tokenized RWA (real-world asset) platform to enable its clients to invest in real estate through fractionalized ownership. Through FreeBnk’s app, clients can effortlessly purchase shares of the first property located in Dubai, democratizing real estate investing by eliminating traditional barriers such as complex paperwork, similar to the seamless experience of browsing and investing on Zillow. Investors of FreeBnk’s tokenized RWAs will receive a 15 percent annual return and a 9 percent rental return from their investment.

Tokenized RWAs have exploded in demand within the digital asset ecosystem, drawing interest from both crypto investors and traditional financial institutions. This sector has become one of the largest in DeFi, with DEX volume experiencing substantial growth from $2.3 billion in December 2024 to $3.6 billion by April 2024. Amidst the escalating global cost of living, tokenized RWAs emerge as an alternative and more accessible investment option offering potentially higher returns, democratizing access to market-proof assets. However, the UI and UX continue to be complex and unfriendly for users unfamiliar with these platforms.

With the launch of its new platform, FreeBnk simplifies wealth-building opportunities by offering ownership shares in properties for potentially generating passive income. Now live within its native mobile app, the decentralized application (dApp) removes the complexities of property ownership, enabling investors to readily enter the tokenized RWA sector. The process involves three straightforward steps:

Search properties: Through the FreeBnk app, users will be able to explore properties, filtering by type, ROI, and yield—allowing investors to align their property investments precisely with their financial objectives.
Buy shares: Users will be able to select their desired property and invest any amount in a few, simple steps. FreeBnk helps to bypass traditional real estate processes and manages all aspects of property ownership using smart contracts.
Earn rental income: FreeBnk automatically assigns a property portfolio to its customers, taking care of all real estate management responsibilities. This service includes collecting and depositing rental income directly into the client’s accounts.
Clients ready to capitalize on property appreciation can conveniently sell their shares at any time through FreeBnk’s secondary market. FreeBnk is committed to offering top-quality real estate, already investing over 250,000 AED into its first property. As a hub for innovation and growth, Dubai sets the stage for global expansion with its growing real estate market and investor-friendly environment.

“As we look ahead, we see the potential of tokenized RWAs and the positive ways in which they can revolutionize the real estate market through fractional ownership,” says Yunus Emre Ozkaya, CEO of FreeBnk. “By tokenizing properties, our goal is to empower investors across the globe, showcasing the unique benefits of tokenized RWAs and offering new avenues for investment. Real estate, known for its relative stability, provides a passive income opportunity amidst global economic fluctuations. We aim to cater not only to crypto enthusiasts but also to newcomers seeking alternative investment options.”
