Tokens.com Corp. (NEO: COIN) (FSE: 76M) ("Tokens.com" or the "Company") is one of the largest publicly traded Proof-of-Stake technology companies by operating assets and market capitalization. Tokens.com focuses on Staking digital assets used to power the booming Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and Non-Fungible Token (NFT) sectors. The Company today announces its financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2021 ("Q1 2021"). All amounts in this news release are unaudited and, unless otherwise indicated, are in US dollars.
"In the first quarter of 2021, the capital we deployed into Staking technology produced an annualized return of 12.8%. Those returns were paid to us in digital assets that continued to appreciate, resulting in a return on our capital deployed in Staking in excess of 50% annualized," said Andrew Kiguel, CEO of Tokens.com.
"In addition to the Staking revenues, the digital assets we use as tools to Stake appreciated by over 150%. Our model benefits from two forms of value creation: the revenue created from our operational Staking plus the appreciation of our digital assets used as tools for Staking. We perform transaction validation for blockchains that underpin the DeFi and NFT markets globally. It’s an incredibly asset-light, scalable model with an exciting global market opportunity that is still in the early stages."

Q1 2021 Overview
Q1 2021 was a busy time for management at Tokens.com as the Company put in place all the requirements for the closing of our reverse take-over of COIN Hodl Inc. and the public listing of the Company’s common shares on the NEO Exchange in Canada. The Company is pleased to share that it was successful in those endeavors subsequent to the end of the quarter and are now trading in Canada under the symbol COIN (specific vendor symbology). Additionally, the Company is also listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the ticker 76M and is in the process of pursuing a quotation on the OTCQB in the United States.
For Q1, the Company is pleased to see that its Staking operations resulted in it earning an annualized gross digital asset compensation of 12.8%. In addition, its revenue generating digital assets also appreciated in value by 151.9% during Q1, resulting in positive comprehensive income of USD$2.7 million.
The Company also notes that the proceeds from the CAD$25 million Offering have been deployed into its Staking operations and are earning revenue. The benefit of this deployment was not reflected in the first quarter, as the proceeds of the Offering were required to be held in escrow until the closing of the reverse takeover transaction, which occurred subsequent to the end of the quarter.
Tokens.com Corp. is one of the largest publicly traded Proof-of-Stake technology companies by operating assets and market capitalization. The Company uses its digital assets as tools to perform Staking, the process required to complete transactions on numerous blockchains such as Eth 2.0 and Polkadot. The Company is compensated for its Staking service with additional digital assets, which can be redeployed into further Staking, thus earning the Company additional compensation. Tokens.com targets gross compensation for its work of over 10% annualized and is currently averaging 13% annualized.
As Tokens.com acquires more digital assets, its ability to earn Staking rewards increases. In addition, the revenue generating digital assets Tokens.com uses for Staking have the ability to appreciate, providing additional potential income for the Company. Tokens.com focuses its activities on digital assets used to power the growing Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and Non-Fungible Token (NFT) sectors.
Tokens.com provides a new and environmentally friendly alternative to crypto-mining.
The Company’s common shares are listed under the symbol "COIN" on the NEO Exchange and as "76M" on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
