Despite the bear market storm, multichain wallet Exodus appears to have weathered the Q2 2023 blitz with an admirable panache. Exodus has recently shed light on its financial health reporting a revenue of $12.4 million, reflecting a modest 4% dip year-over-year. The net income for the multinational crypto venture stood at $1.9 million, with the company attributing much of this total revenue to its exchange aggregation enterprise, which summed up to $11.6 million. The growth in fiat onboarding revenue was striking, riding up 220% from 2022 to touch $561,000.

In terms of traded assets, it seems the real game changers for this quarter were the big three – Bitcoin (BTC) at 27%, Tether (USDT) at 16%, and Ether (ETH) at 12% of total volume. Exodus’ modus operandi for revenue generation primarily rests upon API integration fees charged to third-party integrators. However, on a less optimistic note, the active monthly users recorded a 6% drop, bringing it down to 772,839 in Q2 from 817,972 from the same time last year.

The revenue drop might sound like a bit of a turbulence, but interestingly, Exodus’ results were buoyed up with an impressive 6% reduction in costs. The slashed expenses, amounting to $7.1 million, were achieved largely through a cutback in infrastructure expenditures and headcount. This strategic move saw a downturn in the number of full-time employees this year, coming down to 195 from last year’s 290-an approximately 33% cutback.

Exodus adopted the financial survival hacking by chopping its administrative and marketing allocations by a hefty 65%. This led to a relative relief in expenditure pressure, bringing it down to $4 million. The strategic chop in expenses saw the administrative expenses shrink to 32.2% of the company’s revenue, a considerable plunge from the enormous 87.1% of Q2 2022.

Despite the drops in revenue and users, Exodus’ strong cash and asset holdings send out a reassuring message. As of June 30, Exodus had an envious $55 million in cash, cash equivalents, US Treasury Bills, as well as $46.2 million worth of Bitcoin. This positions this thriving enterprise in the elite club of public companies boasting over 1,000 Bitcoin in corporate treasury.

In the business front too, the company has been very proactive in maneuvering strategic integrations to extend its crypto horizons. Noteworthy among these is the collaboration with Robinhood Connect which facilitates users to purchase and hold cryptocurrencies through Robinhood’s cash. Meanwhile, support was also extended to Arbitrum and Optimism—with Matic staking added to the cap.
