Coinshares joins the list of crypto firms that have had to bear the negative impact of the Terra crash.
Yesterday, August 2nd, the European-based cryptocurrency investment firm, CoinShares disclosed its Q2 earnings for 2022. As per the reports, the firm’s income has dropped from 19.6 million pounds ($23.89 million) to 14.2 million pounds ($17.31 million). Additionally, the total earnings declined from Q1’s 26.6 million pounds (32.42 million) to 0.1 million pounds ($0.12 million).
CoinShares reveals that these losses were primarily associated with the Terra (LUNA), now known as Terra Classic (LUNC), crisis in May 2022. The firm further claims that the de-pegging of Terra (LUNA) brought a loss of 17.7 million pounds to the Capital market business.
CoinShares never held any position directly with any company. However, one of the firm’s books was connected with TerraUSD stablecoin, resulting in huge losses.
CoinShares’s CEO, Jean-Marie Mognetti, expressed his positive thoughts regarding the firm’s upcoming functionality. The CEO claims that the firm has enough funds to move the markets at the time of volatility and says it’s all possible because of strategy, balance sheet, and a unique team.
