Conference call scheduled for Tuesday, April 4 at 16:30 ET
San Francisco, CA, April 3, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RocketFuel Blockchain, Inc. (OTCQB: RKFL) (“RocketFuel” or the “Company”), a global provider of payment solutions via ACH wire transfers, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, today announced its financial and operational results for the third fiscal quarter ended December 31 2022 and provided estimates for the results for the fourth fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2023.
Results for accounting quarter 3
Total revenue grew to $42,408 for the third fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2022 (fiscal quarter 3). Revenue for RocketFuel’s core e-commerce product, which enables online merchants to accept payments via ACH wire transfers, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, grew 68.3% over the previous quarter. Growth was driven by an increase in the number of transactions processed (1,421% compared to the previous quarter) and an increase in transaction volume (257% compared to the previous quarter).
Introductory The financial quarter 4 Results
RocketFuel expects revenue for fiscal year 4 to be approximately $101,000, representing 238% of last quarter’s revenue. The growth is driven by continued growth in the e-commerce business (73% revenue growth compared to the previous quarter) as well as the production release of two additional products: B2B cross-border payments and the recently announced payments product. These two new products each generated more revenue than the e-commerce product and thus lay the foundation for a diversified product and revenue portfolio that will continue to drive overall revenue growth. The company also saw its first 6-figure software license deal that will be recognized in this and future quarters.
In March 2023, RocketFuel announced its crypto payment product that allows businesses to pay their employees and consultants via ACH wire transfers, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, using mobile phones.
In the future, the company expects to continue to expand its revenue portfolio with more products that provide value to current and future customers. One of them has the potential to generate revenue in the current quarter (Fiscal Q1 2023 ending June 30, 2023).
“We continue to see an increase in the number of merchants of our payment partners going live, leading to a 13-fold increase in the number of processed crypto payment transactions. Our sales strategy of selling indirectly through payment service providers and other partners is paying off,” says Peter Jensen, CEO in RocketFuel
“We had an increased number of merchants go live in the quarter, including our second with over $1 billion in combined revenue, which shows that we have a solid enterprise solution. As soon as they turned on the ability to pay with crypto, we immediately saw some of their customers switched from paying by credit card to crypto and the transactions started rolling in. As more and more of their customers see the benefits of paying with their cryptocurrencies. over credit cards our share of this total revenue of 1 billion dollar increase. Furthermore, we are expanding our footprint with our customers by introducing new products and revenue streams to optimize their financial operations. This quarter, several of our existing customers increased their engagement and signed up for our newly released products: B2B cross border and Payouts. These two new products became our biggest revenue generators in one quarter, and we believe there is tremendous demand and revenue potential as more of our existing and future customers adopt them. We expect to launch our fourth revenue stream in the current quarter and expect this product to immediately contribute to our overall revenue. As our business evolves, our team is also advancing our capital markets strategy to increase our visibility, awareness and shareholder value,” Jensen added.
“Our new payout product helps businesses make payments in crypto or FIAT currencies to freelancers, vendors, creators and employees. RocketFuel Payout is a natural extension to Rocketfuel E-commerce, allowing sellers to receive payments in crypto and bank transfer. Merchants will be able to offer both deposit and withdrawal services in digital as well as FIAT currencies from one, single integrated solution. We expect the product to be live in fiscal year 1.”
