Layer2 Blockchain Investment Update

Layer2 continues to produce significant yields from its existing positions in the DeFi sector. Core to Layer2's strategy is liquidity mining, which returns a yield on deployed crypto assets irrespective of market conditions. As such, Layer2 will continue to generate revenue even if there is a decline in the underlying price of its crypto assets. Unlike proof of work miners, liquidity miners provide capital to a liquidity pool on a decentralized exchange. These pools support the function of decentralized exchanges, and the liquidity miners are rewarded with a fee for every transaction. In some cases, Layer2 also earns additional founding tokens in the underlying exchanges, which grant governance rights as well as the opportunity for capital appreciation when the tokens initiate trading on the blockchain.

These founding tokens are provided to Layer2 due to the strategic benefits the company provides to new DeFi protocols prior to launch. This includes advice on market positioning along with initial capital allocation. Layer2 refers to these opportunities as "Day Zero", which is where they can add the most value to new protocols and generate outsized returns for investors.

The Layer2 team continues to identify new and fast-growing decentralized exchanges and has recently deployed capital into Ronin and IDEX. Ronin is a "Day Zero" opportunity and IDEX is a new exchange that has launched on their own newly created layer two blockchain.

Ronin

Ronin is the underlying blockchain of Axie Infinity, which is the world's most popular play-to-earn video game. Layer2 has become a "Day Zero" liquidity provider to Ronin. To date, Layer2 has earned 28,890 RON tokens which are anticipated to begin trading on January 30, 2022 .

Andrew Young , CEO of Layer2, states: "Axie Infinity is the undisputed leader of the play-to-earn revolution and we're extremely optimistic that Axie's underlying blockchain, Ronin, will similarly become the go-to infrastructure layer of this new play-to-earn ecosystem. By farming RON, Prophecy DeFi gets exposure to one of the fastest growing segments of the market by utilizing its growing balance sheet to earn RON tokens via liquidity mining."

IDEX

The IDEX exchange recently moved from Ethereum to the layer two blockchain Polygon, which should encourage rapid growth on this new low fee blockchain. IDEX is the first Hybrid Liquidity decentralized exchange in the world that combines order books and AMMs. Layer2 has deployed capital into 4 positions on this exchange and overall, this has returned an annual percentage yield of 46.78% from the liquidity mining rewards it has received. Layer2 believes that this unique decentralized exchange model will attract sophisticated market makers and traders to IDEX, who will make it one of the most profitable and active crypto exchanges globally.

"We're thrilled to partner with the Layer2 team and we're confident that their support will help drive monumental growth for the IDEX ecosystem." commented Alex Wearn , Co-founder & CEO at IDEX.

DeFi Sector Overview

DeFi has been among the fastest growing segments of the crypto market, largely powered by layer two blockchains. There are now more than 9,000 cryptocurrencies circulating, and the total value locked in DeFi protocols has grown more than 100x over the past 18 months to $240 billion USD .

Layer2 is uniquely positioned to identify high-quality DeFi projects before launch, which increases their ability to create outsized returns irrespective of broader market dynamics. The team currently mines in 10 different liquidity pools that are all generating daily yields, thereby hedging against volatility in cryptocurrency asset prices.

John McMahon , CEO of Prophecy DeFi, remarks: "Key to our proposition is to provide our shareholders with opportunities to realize gains from DeFi protocols that investors wouldn't otherwise have access to. It's the skill and experience of our team and the rapid deployment of capital that gives us a key advantage in the market. As a business we are focused on generating positive returns for our stakeholders while actively contributing to the growth of the DeFi sector. Layer2's strategy is specifically tailored to produce sustainable results both in times of market growth and compression."

Prophecy DeFi is supported by their Advisory Committee consisting of accomplished leaders in decentralized finance. The following video expands on the work of our advisors, and outlines the crucial value they add to the Prophecy DeFi ecosystem: https://youtu.be/U0bOu5pcY44

How Regulation in the Cryptocurrency Industry Protects Investors and De-risks Investments

In November 2021, the global cryptocurrency market hit an all-time high market capitalization of $3 trillion after the world’s two largest cryptocurrencies — bitcoin and ether — reached record highs. Its market capitalization has grown fivefold since November 2020, when it was only $578 billion.

With the global cryptocurrency market expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11.1 percent to reach a whopping US$1.9 billion in 2030, the need for regulation and transparency is taking the industry by storm.

Blockchain and crypto assets are among the first decentralized global industries. Naturally, since the very beginning, there have been calls from some investors and companies with cryptocurrency platforms to establish a regulatory framework, both domestically and internationally, that protects investors without stifling innovation.

CoinAnalyst Corp. Announces Receipt of Management Cease Trade Order

CoinAnalyst Corp. Announces Receipt of Management Cease Trade Order

CoinAnalyst Corp. (CSE: COYX) (FSE: 1EO) (the "Corporation") announces that, further to its April 26, 2022 news release, its application for a temporary management cease trade order (the "MCTO") under National Policy 12-203 - Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203") has been approved by the British Columbia Securities Commission (the "BCSC"). The MCTO does not affect the ability of investors who are not insiders to trade in the securities of the Corporation.

The Corporation announced on April 26, 2022 (the "DefaultAnnouncement") that it was filing an application seeking a MCTO from the BCSC because it was likely to miss its filing deadline of May 2, 2022 to file its audited annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021, and accompanying management's discussion and analysis, and related certifications (collectively, the "Documents"), as required under the applicable securities laws. The inability to file the Documents is due a combination of factors, including that the Corporation became aware that the prior auditor will not able to take on mandate late following which the Corporation initiated immediate search for a new auditor, which took longer than expected as auditors are increasingly hesitant to take on crypto mandates, the hiring and onboarding of new auditor, and delays in audit of the new auditor as it needed to undergo additional procedures. The Corporation continues to work closely with its auditor and expects to file the Documents by June 30, 2022.
