Mastercard (NYSE:MA) has announced an expansion of its preeminent payments-focused consulting service with new practices dedicated to Open Banking, Open Data, Crypto & Digital Currencies, and Environment, Social & Governance (ESG). According to the press release, the company’s “consulting efforts with banks and merchants cover a range of digital currency capabilities, from early-stage education, risk assessments and bank-wide crypto and NFT strategy development to crypto cards and the design of crypto loyalty programs.” Raj Seshadri, the President of Data & Services, at Mastercard, said:
“Payments are just the beginning. Over the past 20 years, we’ve worked with our customers across banking, fintech, retail, travel and other sectors, helping them understand and navigate every challenge and opportunity thrown their way. This evolution of consulting is in recognition of the changing world and of our changing business. It’s about helping customers navigate today’s challenges and anticipating what’s next.”
HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (NasdaqCM:HIVE) has announced a record earnings report for the third quarter ended December 31, 2021. Highlights include a quarterly revenue of $68.2 million – an increase of 30 percent from the previous quarter, and a net income of $64.2 million – up 7 percent from the prior quarter. Darcy Daubaras, HIVE’s CFO, explained:
“A year ago, we made the conscious decision not to sell our mined cryptocurrency or undertake an expensive financing when brokers were offering capital at 20% discounts or encouraging us to borrow against our BTC and ETH assets at a 12% cost of capital in the scramble by crypto mining companies to purchase more ASIC chips. HIVE’s modest equity funding’s were done at prevailing market prices or premiums to the stock price, and this has helped us generate the highest robust returns on invested capital relative to our peers.”
“We believe that the mature business environment and rigorous regulatory regime in Australia will have a great positive impact on Ebonex Exchange’s prospects. We expect that the cryptocurrency space is poised for significant growth as the market for trusted platforms has grown significantly during the last year. Our objective is to have the Ebonex Exchange become one of the premier markets in the cryptocurrency space and to become a trusted platform for cryptocurrency participants worldwide. The launch of Ebonex Exchange has opened up a whole new market for the Fintech industry and is yet another critical milestone in the Company’s strategic development.”
