BIGG CEO, Mark Binns, commented “We are very pleased with our Q2 results - which reflect excellent growth across both Netcoins and BIG. Each company grew revenue by 24% QoQ or better, with margins remaining very strong. We also took advantage of the recent Bitcoin price degradation, adding to our holdings which now sit at 430.8 Bitcoin. We have made minority investments in two solid businesses - Wionder.fi and, of late, Zen Ledger - that boast strong leadership and offer significant growth potential. Netcoins has launched its iOS and Android apps to great reviews and happy customers, making it even easier and faster to trade crypto. We continue to execute on our core business plans. In the second half of 2021 we look forward to continued growth, customer acquisition and product enhancements, as well as partnership expansions.”
