Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. The most significant estimates and judgments relate to: revenue recognition; sales returns and other allowances; allowance for doubtful accounts; valuation of inventory; valuation and recoverability of long-lived assets; property and equipment; contingencies; and income taxes.


On a regular basis, management reviews its estimates utilizing currently available information, changes in facts and circumstances, historical experience and reasonable assumptions. After such reviews, and if deemed appropriate, those estimates are adjusted accordingly. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Concentration of Credit Risk and Significant Customers

Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to a concentration of credit risk consist principally of temporary cash investments and accounts receivable.


Concentrations of credit risk with respect to trade receivables and commodities are limited due to the Company’s diverse group of customers. The Company establishes an allowance for doubtful accounts when events and circumstances regarding the collectability of its receivables or the selling of its commodities warrant based upon factors such as the credit risk of specific customers, historical trends, other information and past bad debt history. The outstanding balances are stated net of an allowance for doubtful accounts.


Revenues from one customer represent $1.0 million and $0 of the Company's revenue for the nine-month periods ended October 31, 2021 and 2000, respectfully.


Our cash balances are maintained in accounts held by major banks and financial institutions located in the United States. The Company may occasionally maintain amounts on deposit with a financial institution that are in excess of the federally insured limit of $250,000. The risk is managed by maintaining all deposits in high-quality financial institutions. The Company had $0.6 million in excess of federally insured limits on October 31, 2021.


Our cryptocurrency balances are maintained in accounts held by institutions located in and outside the United States. The Company maintains amounts on deposit that often exceed coverage from third party insured limit of up to $1,000,000. The risk is managed by maintaining multiple accounts with various accounts held in a cold storage wallet. The Company had $5.0 million in excess of amounts protected by insurance.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company includes in cash and cash equivalents all short-term, highly liquid investments that mature within three months of the date of purchase.

Basic and Diluted Net Earnings (Loss) Per Share

The Company follows ASC Topic 260 – Earnings Per Share, and FASB 2015-06, Earnings Per Share to account for earnings per share. Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) calculations are determined by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS calculations are determined by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus the dilutive effect, calculated using (i) the “treasury stock” method for warrants and (ii) the “if converted” method for the preferred stock if their inclusion would not have been anti-dilutive.
