TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As a result of material price declines in digital assets and the financial challenges of some sector participants in recent weeks, Ether Capital Corporation (“Ether Capital” or the “Company”) wishes to reassure investors on the Company’s financial strength. Ether Capital plans to disclose its second quarter financial statements in mid-August. As of June 30, Management is confident that it has healthy revenue and liquid assets, which are expected to be well in excess of the Company’s operational spending requirements for the foreseeable future.
Currently, the Company is staking approximately 47 per cent of its Ether and has direct ownership and control over those assets. Ether Capital has engaged a third-party specialist to operate validators for its staking process while continuing to maintain custody of its Staked Ether assets using multi-signature wallets. The Company has no debt secured against those assets, nor is there any other financial or legal claim against them.
For the first six months of 2022, the gross yield on Staked Ether was approximately 4.6 per cent. The Company has yet to redeem any of its Ether Staking Rewards since inception. Any such future redemptions of Staking Rewards would generate Canadian dollars that could be used by the Company in its operations or for investment.
The Company has reassessed its previous guidance to investors about staking an additional 10,000 Ether prior to June 30, 2022 and has decided to postpone additional staking due to the likely delay of the Ethereum Merge and the recent market downturn. Management plans to stake the additional 10,000 Ether in late autumn 2022 or soon after the Ethereum Merge, subject to market conditions. Ether Capital’s management team continues to monitor developments in the markets and with respect to market participants and counterparties, and believes it is well positioned financially and strategically.
