TORONTO and MELBOURNE, Australia, July 14, 2021 /CNW/ – BANXA (TSXV: BNXA) (OTCQX: BNXAF) (FSE: AC00) Banxa Holdings, the payment service provider for the digital asset industry, is pleased to announce TTV for the financial year ending 30th June 2021, in accordance with Australian law. On the back of the latest crypto bull market, Banxa has benefited from increased interest in cryptocurrencies. The company maintains the belief that this is the beginning of mass market adoption into cryptocurrencies and continues to carry a long position in the sector as a whole.
Other highlights for the 30th June financial year:
The 5 most popular currencies were USD, EUR, AUD, GBP and CAD

Expansion of regulatory footprint – Banxa now holds cryptocurrency compliance & regulation registrations in Canada, Australia, Netherlands, Lithuania and via a partnership in the USA
The company has “unbundled” its core product line to build out further offerings to support larger, regulated market players
Banxa’s payment and compliance platform allows corporate customers to provide end users the ability to purchase digital assets via multiple payment methods – such as credit/debit card, Apple Pay or bank transfer. Banxa has the widest range of payment methods in the sector, and continues to add more.
Domenic Carosa, Founder and Chairman of BANXA said “As the industry matures, what we see again and again are issues with infrastructure and compliance – these have been widely reported in the media. Tech start ups tend to work to a ‘move fast and break things’ ethos, which is at odds with the heavily regulated financial services and payments space. At Banxa, our aim is to be the regulated partner for cryptocurrency exchanges and digital only businesses – acting as the bridge to the world of traditional finance and payments. We continue to expand both our client base and our product offering to support these clients. Our sustained and continued growth reflects our success in meeting our customers’ needs.”
Banxa Founder and Chairman Domenic Carosa will be presenting on July 15th at the LD Micro/Sequire Virtual Blockchain Conference. Register here to attend.
Banxa is also announcing the appointment of Dave Malcolm as Chief Marketing Officer. Dave has over 20 years’ experience in the marketing space, and was a co-founder of Marley Spoon (ASX: MMM) and prior to that was at computer game firm Rockstar Games. Mr. Malcolm has a proven track record of building and scaling digital ventures.
Holger Arians, CEO of Banxa said “I am happy to welcome Dave Malcolm to the team as CMO. His experience will be invaluable in growing Banxa to the next level. It is critical for our partners and the industry to understand the value and scope of what we are building. Our aim is to be a responsible, long term actor in the sector. This year’s growth has laid the groundwork for our future expansion. We are building the infrastructure of the future of finance.”
BANXA announces that it intends to issue 15,512 common shares of the Company (the “Settlement Shares”) at a price of $4.00 per share in settlement of outstanding debt totaling $62,050.80 (€42,000) (the “Debt”) owing to an arm’s length party, General Research GmbH, in relation to business development, marketing research and customer acquisition services provided to the Company (the “Debt Settlement”). The Company is proposing to issue the Settlement Shares in order to preserve cash to fund future operations.
By issuing the Settlement Shares, the Debt will be definitively extinguished. The Debt Settlement is subject to all necessary regulatory approvals, including acceptance from the Exchange. All securities issued in connection with the Debt Settlement will be subject to a four-month hold period from the closing date under applicable Canadian securities laws, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada.
