Digital Currency Group (DCG), one of the largest venture capital firms in the crypto ecosystem, has reported better than expected revenue in the first quarter of this year. As contained in a shareholder letter, DCG said it raked in a total of $180 million in revenue for the quarter, a figure that is up by 63% from the fourth quarter of last year.
The growth in the DCG revenue stemmed from the recovery that was experienced in the broader crypto ecosystem. For the quarter, the company said its losses for the quarter came in at $6 million, based on adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA).
“DCG’s financial performance this year so far is reflective of the market,” the letter said, adding that its revenue for the year came in at $620 million and that it repaid a $350 million senior secured term loan for the quarter.
Digital Currency Group entered this year with a great deal of uncertainty stemming from the financial distress experienced by some business entities in its lending arm Genesis. The losses incurred by Genesis that eventually led to its insolvency was due to its exposure to FTX Derivatives Exchange which filed for bankruptcy earlier in November.
The current performance outlook did not just show that DCG’s finances had become partly stabilized, it shows the firm has started reaping good rewards from its numerous business ventures.
Digital Currency Group: Charting the Future
The Digital Currency Group suffered quite a major blow to its finances in the 2022 Financial year with a total loss of $1.1 billion bordering on crypto prices plunge and Genesis restructuring.
The loss is being parred off but the man behind the company’s financial department, the Chief Financial Officer Michael Kraines stepped down from his role in the firm. The company told its investors that Kraines’ role will be temporarily taken over by President Mark Murphy and Chief Strategy Officer Simon Koster.
The company said it had enlisted the services of Heidrick & Struggles to help in searching for a new CFO. The experts that will be taking over the role in the firm will have to do a lot to reposition the business and continue on a path of profitability.
