The arrangement sees Conexus acquiring 51% of Bitcoin Direct, in exchange for 500 shares of Conexus’s Series H preferred shares, stated to be worth $500,000. Conexus will also provide a credit facility of $300,000 to Bitcoin Direct, to be maintained by revenue from operations. Another clause allows for Bitcoin Direct to repurchase 10% of shares for $250,000 over a five-year period.
Bitcoin Direct says to operate ATMs in New York and Montreal, and through stated relationships with bitcoin miners, plans to expand operations to additional locations.
The merger brings another Bitcoin company into the publicly traded sphere. Several have made the move this year, suggesting greater acceptance of the industry in the mainstream to some observers.
