CoinSmart CEO Justin Hartzman commented:
"Q2 2022 was a challenging period for the overall cryptocurrency industry, including the decrease of the global market capitalization and the implosion of some of the industries' largest players. I am proud of what the CoinSmart team has accomplished during this turbulent time. We continued to innovate with new product launches and were able to optimize resources towards business lines that are less correlated to market sentiment. In Q3 2022 and beyond, our focus remains on scaling OTC trading and SmartPay – our proprietary crypto payments platform, while we maintain growth on the retail side of the business. We have been quick to adapt in a market that rapidly changes. We took actions to contain costs early in the cycle and now focus on revenue production. I am excited for what the future has in store for CoinSmart as we brave the inclement market conditions and use this time to build and prepare for the next bull run ahead."
