CFO & Treasurer, Hedera

Hedera is committed to providing industry leading transparency and reporting to developers and users of the Hedera network. Today we are releasing the updated Hedera Treasury Management Report, which provides a more simplified view of estimated distributions for the next twelve months, including variable commitments based on USD (reforecast every quarter starting in 2023 based on best available fair market value at the time of the reforecast). Historical reporting has been updated based on estimated accruals, and starting in 2023 we will also provide preliminary audit-ready actuals for prior quarters, with a third-party audit expected to be completed in 2023.

We have received internal and external feedback on the previous iteration of the report from September 2021, which is incorporated into the updated report. This includes:

  • An enhanced layout, in alignment with Hedera Governing Council’s ("Council") operational and governance framework

  • Four simplified categories: Initial Development Costs and Licensing, Purchase Agreements, Network Governance and Operations, and Ecosystem and Open Source Development, which are based on Council resolutions and delegated authority.

  • 12-month forecast and quarterly reporting for greater accuracy v. multi-year forecasting which is non-standard for public reporting due to the inherent risk of inaccuracy in such forecasts.

  • Removal of the term ‘pre-minted’ Treasury, as all hbars have been minted. This term has been changed to ‘unallocated supply’.

Hedera is committed to setting the industry standard for transparency, reporting, and business process maturity. We operate in a dynamic environment and fast-changing landscape, and the Council will be reviewing and evolving our reporting methodology over time.
