Bitcoin Well Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results

EDMONTON, Alberta, Aug. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bitcoin Well Inc. (the "Company" or "Bitcoin Well") (TSXV: BTCW), today announced the financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022. The Interim Financial Statements as well as Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") are available on our website and have been filed on SEDAR.

Revenues and Gross Profit from our ATMs across Canada and over the counter ("OTC") in-person offices have remained strong over the last four quarters amidst a volatile market sentiment for cryptocurrencies. Revenue in the second quarter of 2022 increased by 52% and Gross Profit increased by 10% when compared to the first quarter of 2022 mainly due to the diversity of revenue streams we have been focused on growing for the past two years. Going forward in 2022, we are anticipating conservative monthly growth in our in-person services and have significantly reduced expenses to a manageable level within those conservative forecasts to improve our Adjusted EBITDA.

"Our business has been navigating the crypto market downturn effectively. Albeit modest, we were focused on increasing our gross profit and were successful in doing that in the second quarter despite the overall crypto market decreasing from all time highs," said Adam O'Brien, Founder & CEO of Bitcoin Well. "We are continuing to focus on increasing our gross profit in the third quarter and are excited to show the markets what we can do. I have successfully led this organization through multiple ?crypto winters' and will employ similar cash preservation and building strategies through this one as I have in the past."
