"During the year, the group diversified some of its working capital into the Ethereum cryptocurrency asset," the publication notes, citing data from the company's most recent accounts prepared up to Nov. 30, 2022, and filed with the U.K. Companies Registry.
Data on the purchase of assets is given in the section "Buy intangible assets" in the amount of $19.89 million in the financial statements of the company. However, the document also reports a total impairment loss of $8.46 million.
