澳交所上演首笔用比特币支付的股权收购案

澳大利亚证券交易所(ASX,以下简称澳交所)本周三宣布,比特币能够用于购买在该交易所上线的公司股份。Blockchain Global Limited(BGL)承诺购买Digitalx 40%的股权,其中部分资金通过比特币进行支付。

澳交所首次比特币战略投资

据澳交所的一篇声明显示,比特币将会首次用于该交易所的战略投资。

一部分款项通过比特币支付,这在澳交所尚属首次。

这份认购协议的双方是BGL和Digitalx。Digitalx是一家在澳交所挂牌交易的区块链软件方案集团,其“Airpocket”应用能让消费者在世界范围之内进行安全以及低成本的资金转移。

BGL成立于2014年,提供涉及区块链技术的比特币挖矿、软件和咨询服务。这家公司已经同意以2.7美分每股的价格收购Digitalx 40%的股权,投资总额为435万澳元。

其中30万澳元BGL将会以比特币可转换贷款的形式进行支付。剩下的405万澳元中,55万会通过可转换票据的形式支付,其它则以股份形式纳入。

这份投资计划还需要股东的同意以及尽调,将在6月30日之前开始。如果无法取得股东的认可,Digitalx就必须赔偿BGL 10万澳元的违约金。

BGL和Digitalx的联系

BGL旗下的ACX.io是澳大利亚最大、流动性最强的比特币交易所。据该公司CEO Sam Lee年初所说,该交易所占据着澳大利亚比特币市场60%的交易份额。

今年2月,BGL和Digitalx签署了一份收入共享协议,ACX.io直接接管了Digitalx的所有客户。作为回报,Digitalx客户在ACX.io交易所中带来的50%的收益都将返还给Digitalx。

澳大利亚的比特币热

上个月,澳大利亚宣布比特币双重税将会在7月1日取消。在延迟了一年以后,政府终于将取消比特币双重税纳入了2017到2018年财政预算中。

预算中解释道:

目前使用数字货币的消费者需要支付两次消费税(GST):一次是在购买数字货币时,另一次是在使用数字货币购买其他商品和服务时。

另外,政府也将为创新数字货币企业在澳大利亚的运营提供便利。

从2017年7月1日开始,购买数字货币不再需要承担消费税,数字货币可用于消费,被视为与货币类似。

The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) announced on Wednesday that bitcoin will be used to buy a stake in a company listed on its exchange. Blockchain Global Limited (BGL) has agreed to buy a 40% interest in Digitalx, paying partly in bitcoins.

The First Case of Bitcoin Strategic Investment on ASX

According to an announcement by the ASX, bitcoin will be used in a strategic investment on the exchange for the first time. The exchange wrote:

First tranche funding through bitcoin – a first for the Australian Securities Exchange.

Bitcoin Used to Buy Stake in Company on the Australian Securities ExchangeThe agreement is between BGL and Digitalx, a blockchain-enhanced software solutions group listed on the ASX. Digitalx’s “Airpocket” application allows consumers to make secure and cost-effective money transfers worldwide.

Founded in 2014 and formerly known as Bitcoin Group Limited, BGL provides Bitcoin mining, software, and consultancy services involving blockchain technology. The company has agreed to invest AUD$4.35 million at 2.7 cents per share to acquire roughly a 40% interest in Digitalx on a fully diluted basis.

Bitcoin Used to Buy Stake in Company on the Australian Securities ExchangeBGL is paying AUD$300,000 of the total investment by way of a convertible loan in bitcoin. Of the remaining $4.05 million, $550,000 will be paid via convertible notes and the rest in shares.

This investment is subject to shareholder approval and due diligence which would be done by June 30. If the shareholder approval is not obtained, Digitalx has agreed to pay BGL a break free penalty of AUD$100,000.

Previous Deal Between BGL and Digitalx

BGL operates ACX.io which is Australia’s largest and most liquid bitcoin exchange by volume. According to the company’s CEO Sam Lee earlier this year, the exchange has 60 percent market share of the total bitcoin market trade volume in the country.

In February, BGL entered into a revenue sharing agreement with Digitalx to onboard customers of Digitalx Direct bitcoin exchange onto ACX.io. In return, Digitalx would receive 50% of all revenue generated from customers introduced to the ACX.io.

Australia Warming up to Bitcoin

Bitcoin Used to Buy Stake in Company on the Australian Securities ExchangeAustralia announced last month that bitcoin’s double taxation will end on July 1. After over a year of delay, the government finally included the removal of the double taxation of bitcoin in its 2017-2018 budget.

“Currently, consumers who use digital currencies can effectively bear GST twice: once on the purchase of the digital currency and once again on its use in exchange for other goods and services subject to the GST,” the budget explains. Citing “the Government will make it easier for new innovative digital currency businesses to operate in Australia,” the budget details:

From 1 July 2017, purchases of digital currency will no longer be subject to the GST, allowing digital currencies to be treated just like money for GST purposes.
