The Company recorded revenue during the year of $1.5 million and a net loss for the year of $0.10 per share
The Company recorded a gain on other comprehensive income (OCI) of $161.5 million during the year, which was primarily the result of the net change in unrealized gain on fair value revaluation of the Company’s digital intangible assets
Excluding any staking rewards to-date, the Company’s current Ether and Staked Ether balance is 44,061, reflecting a market value of approximately $164.4 million. As at March 23, 2022, the gross value of the assets of the Company, consisting of its Ether and Staked Ether balance valued as at March 23, 2022 as well as the Company's Wyre investment valued as at December 31, 2021, amounted to $170.6 million. On a per basic common share basis, with basic common shares being those outstanding as at March 23, 2022, this represents $5.05 of gross asset value per basic common share.
Brian Mosoff, Ether Capital’s CEO said: "2021 was an active year for Ether Capital and I am pleased with our progress. We began generating material revenue from our agreement with Purpose relating to their ETF products. We also began to recognize revenue from staking following our significant allocation of 10,240 Ether to Ethereum staking in mid-December, a commitment that has only grown so far in 2022 and will continue to grow. We’ve added meaningfully to the management team with the addition of Shayan Eskandari as CTO in 2021 and, more recently in 2022, with Ian McPherson as President & CFO and Jillian Friedman as COO. We intend to be aggressive in 2022, focusing on development of unique IP as a complement to our core asset ownership of Ether. We continue to look for opportunities to generate productive returns on our asset base, and to develop our product roadmap for new products and services."
