BTL has announced that it has entered into a deal with Xapcash Technologies to acquire all of the issued and outstanding securities of Xapcash. BTL and Xapcash are working together on new blockchain based remittance products utilizing Xapcash's front-end remittance product and BTL's back-end remittance platform (Interbit) to transmit funds globally, efficiently and at significantly reduced costs to users. Of particular importance to the Transaction and the launch of BTL's blockchain remittance solution is the money service business (MSB) registration that Xapcash has obtained in Canada.
“This year is of strategic importance to BTL as we aim to penetrate the global remittance market with our blockchain solutions and start building revenues and margin,” commented Guy Halford-Thompson, CEO of BTL. “The addition of Xapcash, and its management and blockchain expertise advances this strategy.”
“This merger with BTL ensures a successful launch of a joint remittance solution and pave the way for more innovative Xapcash/BTL products in the future,” said Jackson Warren, Xapcash founder and CEO. “Furthermore, the partnership significantly expands what is already considerable blockchain expertise among the management of BTL, and I am excited to become a shareholder of BTL.”
