Vancouver, British Columbia – March 19, 2015 – Newnote Financial Corp. (the “Company”), (CSE: NEU; OTCQB: NWWTF; FSE: 1W4) is pleased to announce the Company has acquired Canadian based Bitcoin exchange Cointrader.net, the CoinZero Point-of-Sale System and ATM machines in London & Tokyo among other assets for CDN $1,500,000 in cash and stock, making Newnote the world’s first and only publicly traded Bitcoin exchange listed on three stock exchanges.
CoinTrader.net is a leading North American Bitcoin exchange; one of the top two Bitcoin exchanges in Canada by volume founded by the Bitcoiniacs whom were responsible for the installation of the world’s first Bitcoin ATM in Vancouver, Canada, as well as the opening of the world’s first physical Bitcoin Brokerage in July of 2013.
• Canada’s fastest growing Bitcoin exchange
• Processing more than CDN $1,500,000 per month in transactions
• 10,000 active users with a signup rate of over 1000 new users per month
• Key strategic partners and business relationships in place
CoinTrader.net‘s imminent entry into the U.S. and European markets; with the help of strategic partner Vogogo Inc. (TSXV:VGO), will enable users direct bank transfers in all 50 states and many countries throughout the Eurozone later this year.
Cointrader.net offers its users 100% insured Bitcoin deposits through partner XAPO and unparalleled security from partner Crowdcurity, a service offering white-hat hackers a fee for identifying potential security threats. The Cointrader.net API allows developers direct access to the exchange’s order book which can be used to execute automated trades, pull market data or interface with Bitcoin ATM machines. CoinTrader.net currently has nearly 1000 Bitcoin ATMs connected worldwide: in Canada, the UK, Japan, Singapore and over 800 terminals connected through the ZebraPay network in Romania. The acquired ATM machines currently located in Tokyo and London utilize the Cointrader.net API to automatically buy and sell Bitcoin directly from the order book on the exchange.
In addition to Cointrader.net, the Company has also acquired Point-of-Sale system CoinZero. CoinZero enables retail merchants and online stores the ability to accept Bitcoin for merchandise. CoinZero offers a plethora of features such as inventory tracking and simple accounting to name a few. Most importantly, CoinZero offers Bitcoin to fiat conversion, positioning Newnote to compete with BitPay and Coinbase which also offer a similar service.
CEO & President of Newnote, Paul Dickson, reports: “This transaction positions Newnote as the de-facto leader in the crypto-currency space in Canada. Cointrader.net, CoinZero and the ATM network offer our shareholders direct exposure to the primary revenue generators in the digital currency space; it is our mission to deliver on our promise to offer the most innovative products and services available.”
