BIGG CEO, Mark Binns, commented:

“2021 was a transformational year for BIGG Digital Assets. Our top line revenue grew 461% to surpass $14M, with both Netcoins and Blockchain Intelligence Group showing excellent product market fit and revenue growth. We also took advantage of the recent Bitcoin price degradation, adding to our holdings throughout 2021, and into 2022, which now sit at over 575 Bitcoin in treasury. We made minority investments in four early stage crypto related businesses in 2021 – TerraZero, Wonder.fi, ZenLedger and LQwD Fintech Corp, subsequently exiting our position in Wonder.fi profitably. We made a further investment in TerraZero in early 2022, a leading metaverse company, adding another significant pillar to our corporate holdings and investments.

In Q3, Netcoins made the significant step of receiving the first restricted dealer license for a crypto trading platform owned by a Canadian public company. In Q1 2022, Netcoins received an update to their license, allowing for the expansion of coin offerings on the platform. Netcoins also fully launched Netcoins Pay in Q1, after a Q4 trial period – making it even easier for our loyal customers to make everyday purchases via their Netcoins account and receive crypto rewards.

In 2021, Blockchain Intelligence Group expanded coverage to 9 blockchains including 350k+ ERC-20 tokens, with further blockchain expansion planned. Notable new customers in 2021 included a Fortune 500 bank and a global management consultancy, Ankura. In Q3 and Q4, Blockchain Intelligence Group deployed Multi-Chain Graphing and other capabilities for QLUE to conduct detailed transactions across Bitcoin and Ethereum. QLUE was also used to uncover the first NFT scam of 2022 called Frosties.

Despite a depressed crypto market thus far in 2022, BIGG continues to develop its primary businesses and invest in new emerging businesses and opportunities. We look forward to sharing further updates on our progress in the near future.”
