The Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Randy May, said “It’s been a pleasure working with Todd Ault and the BitNile.com team since the closure of our acquisition of BNC. The engaged user statistics have greatly exceeded our expectations since the launch two months ago and I expect continued growth with the advent of the launch of gaming in the metaverse next week.” The Company’s Chief Financial Officer, Jay Puchir, said “This financing is extremely strategic in nature for the Company and is expected to provide sufficient growth capital for the launch of gaming in the metaverse which we foresee as a major revenue driver for new revenue streams for the Company.”
