Riot Blockchain’s Revenue by Segment is further bifurcated:
The Company’s routine activities include providing computing power to solve sophisticated cryptographic algorithms in support of the Bitcoin network (a process known as “solving a block”). The only performance requirement in the Company’s contracts with mining pool operators, or customers, is to provide such processing power. The contracts can be terminated by any party at any moment, and the Company’s enforceable right to compensation begins only when it contributes computer power to the mining pool operator.
The Company’s cumulative income is determined by the fair value of the cryptocurrency awards it has received from mining pools. If the Company receives noncash transaction consideration, it is valued at fair value on the date it is received, which is not significantly different from that at contract start or when the Company has earned the award from pools. The Company’s fair value is determined using the quoted price on the linked cryptocurrency at the time of receipt.
The major component, about 82.73% of the company’s total revenue, was made up of Cryptocurrency mining. Riot Blockchain’s revenue owing to the Cryptocurrency mining segment increased from $2.44 million in Q3 2020 to $53.59 million in Q3 2021, indicating a rise of almost 2097% on a year-on-year basis. It decreased almost by 47% compared to $31.45 million earned in Q2 2021.
Data Center Hosting
Third-party mining firms that locate their mining hardware at the Company’s Rockdale, Texas site benefit from energized space as well as operations, and maintenance services. These agreements are accounted for as a single performance obligation for services given in a series, with delivery being measured by the mining hardware’s daily successful functioning. As a result, revenue is recognized throughout the contract as the Company meets its set of performance objectives.
Datacenter hosting revenue also includes revenue from the provision of installation services for certain hosted customers’ mining equipment. Riot charges the customer an hourly rate or a fixed fee per piece of equipment. There are no substantial warranty requirements for the Company. The Company makes use of the “right to invoice” clause. The revenue is realized once the installation is completed.
Riot Blockchain’s revenue from the Data Center Hosting segment climbed to $11.19 million in Q3 2021 and decreased by 74.35% as compared to $2.87 earned in Q2 2021. It contributed 17.27% to the company’s revenue.
Other revenue comes from an upfront license fee obtained by the previous animal health business. The upfront charge was recorded as deferred revenue, which will be amortized into revenue during the License Agreement’s length.
Other revenue consisting of license fees was not significant in either period and remained stagnant at $0.02 million from the last two quarters. Its contribution towards the company’s revenue was 0.03%.
