BIGG CEO, Mark Binns, commented:
“The crypto market has been under tremendous pressure the past two quarters, which has highlighted more than ever the need for regulation – both regulated exchanges and tools that support a regulated industry. This defines BIGG. QLUE and Netcoins have long been these companies. While Netcoins Q3 2022 showed revenue contraction highlighting the tough crypto market of the summer, Blockchain Intelligence Group revenue remained steady and BIGG’s bottom line significantly improved from the previous period. We were able to adjust quickly to market realities, cutting costs and being extra prudent with expenditures. Netcoins customer base grew by 5% in the quarter, and as volume and volatility return to the market, we believe our regulated exchange is extremely well positioned to take advantage, already showing a 20% daily revenue increase in November, post FTX collapse. We also continue to prepare for the Netcoins launch in the USA opening up a new market, which we believe is in critical need of safe and regulated trading platforms.
In Q3, TerraZero announced plans to go public via Reverse Take Over (RTO), expected to complete in early 2023. TerraZero’s revenue continues to rise significantly, and Mr. Reitzik and his team continue to execute and sign global brands as customers. We remain excited about the future of our TerraZero investment.
Finally, despite the ongoing crypto ‘contagion’ seen in Q3 headlined by FTX, BIGG remains healthy with no debt and no loans of customer (or company) assets. We look forward to sharing further updates on our progress in the near future.”
