The association still needs to shell out a concluding amount of $250 million to dealing shareholder BTC Korea. The completion of the deal is expected in February.

California-based company, Blockchain Industries had issued a letter of intent for merging with BTHMB Holdings which will be replaced by BXA after the finalization of the coalition’s acquisition of the governing stake in Bithumb. It aims to achieve the reverse merger by March 1. Securing a large majority of Blockchain Industries’ chief shares, BXA will receive over-the-counter listing standing.

It has three levels of association for exchanges that join the consortium namely; acquisition, white label licensee, or participant member.

Blockchain Industries noted in a US filing that BXA has plans to make the merger entity for its business expansion in America. The California-based firm with only six employees disclosed revenue of just $1.5 million for the 2018 financial year.
