Blockchain Exchange Alliance, the owner of the major South Korean crypto exchange Bithumb, is eyeing American and Japanese markets.

In a recent interview, BXA’s CEO BK Kim elucidated BXA’s current strategy. According to him, it involves a so-called reverse merger route which is essentially buying a publicly traded company on exchanges, like Nasdaq and NYSE.

BK Kim explained the reasoning behind this route. He posits that it is a speedier way than launching an IPO. It is also cheaper, as it can significantly reduce listing fees which are sitting at circa $6 million.

He states that BXA has already consulted with relevant parties in the U.S. One of them reportedly confirmed that BXA can implement such a reverse-merger plan.

Looking east as well

BXA’s CEO also went on to disclose its plans in Asia. According to him, the company is planning to make a foray into the Japanese market. Currently, it is seeking potential partners with the intention of establishing a joint venture for a crypto exchange. The latter should be overseen by a Japanese watchdog.

He also discussed the potential acquisition of up to 70% of Bithumb’s operator, BTC Holdings, making it clear that BXA already owns more than 50% of the exchange.

He added that Bithumb might soon list BXA’s native token, BXA. However, this will require considering regulation and its potential impediments.

Previously, Altcoinbuzz reported that a Japanese ST Blockchain Fund invested $200 million into BXA. The positive development happened, in spite of the fact that Bithumb has been recently hacked. The exchange suffered a loss of $13 million, according to an external audit.



Illuminati, Mason, Anonymous I'll never tell. I can tell you this, global power is shifting and those who have the new intelligence are working to acquire this new force. You matter naught except to yourself, therefore prepare for the least expected and make your place in the new world order.
