VANCOUVER, British Columbia – July 28, 2021 – Neptune Digital Assets Corp. (TSX-V:NDA) (OTC:NPPTF) (FSE:1NW) (“Neptune” or the “Company“), a cryptocurrency leader in Canada, is pleased to provide an update on the current financial position of the Company in advance of filing its Q3 consolidated interim financial statements for the nine-month period ended May 31, 2021.
“We are quite pleased with our revenue growth over the period and subsequent to period end. Neptune continues to operate on a very lean cash budget and earnings continue to grow as we expand our mining operations.
