Transaction Verification Services

BTCS, through its transaction verification services business, verifies and validates blockchain transactions and is rewarded with digital assets. We are actively operating nodes on the ethereum 2.0 network and have staked a portion of our ETH holding. We plan to expand our proof-of-stake (PoS) operations to include other disruptive blockchain protocols. We are not currently securing proof-of-work (PoW) blockchains, such as bitcoin’s blockchain, but may in the future.

Data Analytics Platform

BTCS is developing a proprietary digital asset data analytics platform which allows users to consolidate their portfolio holding data from multiple exchanges on one platform, enabling users to view and analyze performance, risk metrics, and potential tax implications. The Company anticipates it will open the platform to beta testing in 2021.

Digital Asset Treasury

The Company employs a digital asset treasury strategy with a primary focus on disruptive non-security protocol layer assets such as bitcoin and ethereum. BTCS receives digital assets from its transaction verification services business and acquires digital assets through open market purchases. The Company is not limiting its assets to a single type of digital asset and may hold a variety of digital assets. The fair value of the Company’s holdings increased 1,327% in 2020.

Industry Primer

Blockchain have the potential to completely revolutionize how data is exchanged over worldwide networks. Its potential goes far beyond financial transactions to reach into just about every data exchange on the planet. Blockchains are shared, immutable ledgers for recording transactions, tracking assets and building trust. A blockchain consists of a number of blocks, hence the term. Each block is a record of transactions of specific data, which can contain anything from cryptos to voting records to medical data. When one block is completed and can no longer be updated with new data, it is added to the chain and another, new block, is formed. All the information on a blockchain is publicly available, as it’s a decentralized system, which means that the information is stored on many computers (referred to as nodes) distributed around the globe, and there’s no specific party or authority to control it.

Frequently Asked Questions

U.S. public companies such as BTCS are required to prepare and report their financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”).  Under U.S. GAAP, non-security digital assets such as bitcoin and ethereum are indefinite life intangible assets and carried at their lowest value since date of acquisition by BTCS.  A more detailed description of our digital asset accounting policies can be found in Note 4 to our most recent annual report. Additionally, PWC’s March 2018 point of view position publication provides an excellent digital asset accounting analysis.


U.S. GAAP is a rule-based accounting regime and while it is possible to fit digital assets into the existing accounting model for intangible assets, this model does not best reflect the economics of these unique assets. As such, the reported value of our digital assets on our balance sheet is significantly less than their fair market value (“FMV”) and cannot be increased under U.S. GAAP despite increasing digital asset prices.


Given the material discrepancy in value, we have disclosed, and will continue to disclose, the FMV of our digital assets in the MD&A section of our financial reports. Further, on August 28, 2018 in, a response to a SEC registration statement comment letter we urged the SEC to coordinate with the Financial Accounting Standards Board to further revise the accounting guidelines to provide for an updated accounting framework for digital assets.

BTCS year end is December 31st, with quarters ending on March 31st, June 30th, and September 30th.
