Bithumb, one of the largest Bitcoin exchanges in South Korea, in the foreseeable future, may begin to offer services to residents of the United States and Japan. About this in an interview with Cointelegraph said BC Kim, CEO of the Blockchain Exchange Alliance (BXA), which owns the controlling package in Bithumb.

According to him, the BXA strategy is the so-called reverse merger, involving the purchase of a company whose shares are already being traded on one of the major exchanges. Among those, Kim names the Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

Such a path may be faster than a traditional IPO, and will also help to significantly reduce the cost of listing on the stock exchange, which can reach $ 6 million.

As Kim says, BXA has already applied for legal support in the United States, and a lawyer from an unnamed firm said that the current regulatory environment allows the company to implement the stated plan.

BXA is also looking for partners in Japan, where it wants to create a joint venture to launch a officially licensed cryptocurrency exchange.

In addition, BC Kim said that he could potentially increase the share of BXA in Bithumb by buying up to 70% of the shares of BTC Holdings, the current operator Bithumb.

Additionally, he touched on the issue of the BXA's own token, which is already traded on the BitMax exchange, noting that its potential listing on Bithumb requires additional legal assessment.

Earlier this week, the Blockchain Exchange Alliance received funding in the amount of $ 200 million from the Japanese blockchain fund ST in the framework of the investment round of series A. As stated, investments will be directed to expanding the geography of Bithumb services, as well as adding new trading pairs to the site.

The Central Bank of Great Britain for the first time recognized the huge potential of Bitcoin

Published

on

For the first time, a representative of the Central Bank of Great Britain commented positively on cryptocurrency and Bitcoin , in particular.

For a long time, the British financial regulator spoke extremely negatively about Bitcoin and doubted its reliability as a form of capital preservation.

For example, at the end of April, the Deputy Head of the Office for Markets and Financial Affairs of the Central Bank of the Kingdom, Dave Ramsden, reaffirmed the negative attitude of the regulator to the cryptosphere.

However, this week, the chief economist of the British Central Bank Andrew Haldane, during his speech to the students for the first time, acknowledged not only reliability, but also the gigantic prospects of Bitcoin. In his opinion, the largest cryptocurrency will be able to completely replace cash in the next 20-30 years.

Haldane said that he was following the development of the cryptocurrency industry and was aware of the existence of thousands of coins. Nevertheless, despite the fact that for the first time one of the influential employees of the British Central Bank noted the growing value of Bitcoin, the position of the regulator’s management is unlikely to change anytime soon, analysts say.

But it is quite possible that, following the chief economist, many other senior officials of the Central Bank will reconsider their position, and this will create conditions for the British Bitcoin regulator to be fully recognized as a reliable payment instrument.
