Web 3.0 Holdings has aggregated a portfolio of retail-focused engagement and optimization assets, including crossover digital identity code scripts and digital distribution product frameworks. The acquisition will allow Looking Glass full access to Web 3.0 Holding's proprietary retail technology platform. The acquisition was an arm's-length transaction.

Continuing operations

The company continues to work on establishing partnerships with media companies, marketing organizations, automotive brands, fashion companies and others to create the most diverse and realistic metaverse experience for all users and brands. This is expected to allow brands to create further value by monetizing existing products, services and/or intellectual properties.

The company specializes in consumer engagement applications to leverage immersive metaverse environments, gamification and Web 3.0/blockchain monetization strategies.

The company's road map for 2023 and 2024 consists of furthering its Web 3.0 monetization strategies and finding additional avenues to utilize its developed metaverse environments.

Pocket Dimension metaverse

The Pocket Dimension metaverse is a hyperrealistic digital world that is being built using the latest version of Unreal Engine to offer users a premium virtual experience. Pocket Dimensions feature 10 different environments. Pocket Dimension is a private virtual space that provides users the ability to explore the virtual space and socialize with other users through avatars.

The company released its alpha version of its Pocket Dimension metaverse on Nov. 1, 2022, its beta version on Feb. 21, 2023, and publicly released the Pocket Dimension metaverse on May 29, 2023

Content creation

The company has an in-house design and blockchain development team, available to provide consulting services such as non-fungible-token design and back-end solutions to third party clients. The company has launched several Web 3.0 strategies for companies seeking to expand from traditional consumer markets to Web 3.0.

Crypto assets and safeguards

The company stores its ethereum cryptocurrency, the main cryptocurrency used in NFT markets, on a physical hardware device often referred to as a hardware wallet. The hardware device is similar looking to a USB thumb drive, except instead of saving data to the device, the devices store cryptocurrency off-line. The company does not hold any other cryptocurrencies beyond ETH. The seed phrase to be used to retrieve the contents of the wallet if the ledger device is physically lost is maintained by two officers of the company. If the ledger device is lost, the officers of the company may gain access of the wallet by providing the correct seed phrase. The redundancy is to ensure that the seed phrase is available if required at any time. On a weekly basis, the company assesses the cryptocurrency market conditions and its quarterly budget requirements while it monitors and liquidates its ETH holdings into Canadian currency on at least a biweekly basis by transferring the required ETH on a cryptocurrency exchange for immediate sale for Canadian currency.

Asset acquisition

On Aug. 9, 2022, the company entered into the SPA to acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities of Web 3.0 Holdings, a technology company that is addressing BtoC and BtoB infrastructure challenges within Web3 environments.

As consideration, the company issued 184,363 common shares of the company on Sept. 7, 2022, payable to the existing shareholders of Web 3.0 holdings with a fair value of $1,935,815. The acquisition of Web 3.0 Holdings did not constitute a business combination because this entity does not meet the definition of a business under international financial reporting standard 3 (Business Combination). As a result, the transaction was measured at the fair value of equity consideration issued to acquire these entities. The fair value of the consideration paid was determined based on the fair value of the assets received as determined based on IFRS 2 (Share Based Payments).

Financial result of the year ended July 31, 2023:

  • Revenues in 2023 also decreased from $7,005,238 in fiscal 2022 to $654,957 in fiscal 2023 as a result of the general decrease in the cryptocurrency and NFT marketplace. This decreased both the number of sales, resales and the resale price of the company's outstanding NFTs, which resulted in a corresponding decrease in revenue and royalty revenue generated.
  • Net comprehensive loss for the year ended July 31, 2023, was $12,587,314, as compared with net comprehensive loss of $12,087,045 reported for the same period of the prior year. The decrease in net loss was mainly the result of a decrease in stock-based compensation and operating expenses (particularly marketing costs) during the year ended July 31, 2023. This was offset by a decrease in sales, as well as the recording of an impairment loss on intangible assets as described above during the year ended July 31, 2023.
  • Net loss per share for the year ended July 31, 2023, was $6.88 on a basic shares outstanding basis, as compared with $9.21 for the same period of the prior year.
  • Total assets for the period ended July 31, 2023, decreased to $836,925 from $7,462,687 for the same period of the prior year.
