OBITX, INC. (now known as EVERYTHING BLOCKCHAIN, INC.), (OTC Markets: OBTX) today reported diluted GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations (EPS) of $0.13 for the first fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2021, compared with a $4.93 loss in the first fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2020. Last year’s results included costs associated with the Company’s restructuring of business operations, adding key management members, expanding the board of directors, and implementing audit and compensation committees. This year’s results include an increase of 69% in services provided revenue with 31% in growth in cryptocurrency assets through staking, and interest. In addition, OBITX saw a $100K increase in fair market value of its current cryptocurrency assets not associated with operations.
Eric Jaffe, OBITX Chief Executive Officer stated, “While we are satisfied with our first quarter performance, we expect even stronger growth moving forward due to the near-term commencement of our mining operations and the forthcoming completion of the previously announced strategic acquisition. The acquisition will not only give us access to low cost electricity for our mining operations but also add $2M in revenue. We will initially focus on Bitcoin mining and Ethereum alt coins. Thus, we are projecting triple digit revenue growth over the next several quarters. We also have been developing two additional technologies on the blockchain which will be patent protected prior to their commercialization.”
Michael Hawkins, OBITX Chief Financial Officer stated, “Despite the pullback in the cryptocurrency markets, we are well positioned with our current crypto assets because of our low cost entry points. I am very excited about the prospects for our future growth as we also prepare for a potential NASDAQ listing in 2021. “
