Despite being suspended from trading on the ASX since December 2017 and a pending ASIC investigation, Byte Power Group (ASX:BPG) is pushing ahead in its pursuit of ‘Building the first ASX listed crypto currency exchange’.
The company has received AUSTRAC registration approval for its Brisbane-based exchange. AUSTRAC is the Australian Government authority which monitors cryptocurrency exchanges.
Its understood the exchange will be known as the ‘Byte Power X Cryptocurrency Exchange’.
The approval is a major milestone in what has been an turbulent development process for Byte Power Group.
An agreement with Singapore-based SoarLabs Pte Ltd to establish and run the cryptocurrency exchange turned sour when SoarLabs allegedly stole more than $6.5m worth of cryptocurrency.
A legal stoush ensued before a settlement was reached between the parties in May.
BPG was quick to find a new exchange developer, entering into a development and services agreement with Malaysian-based Noetic Synergy.
Now, according to BPG, development of the Byte Power X trading platform, features and functions is complete, with system testing in the final stages.
Token Generation Event
Byte Power group now intends to undertake a token generation event for Byte Power X Loyalty Token (BPX Tokens).
The BPX token will provide a discount on commissions for users of Byte Power Group’s future exchange.
Initial plans outlined by the company show a total of 1 billion tokens will be created with an issue price of US$0.06.
