Even as the Indian government has explicitly acknowledged the need for Blockchain and has shown enthusiasm in acknowledging it, the country’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), effectively asks the Indian banks not to support the entities involved in cryptocurrencies.
As a result, India’s largest exchange Bitxoxo, shifted its operations to and is now incorporated in Australia and setting its sights on expanding into Singapore and the Middle East, where the regulatory environment is more welcoming.
The team is on the verge to complete all the legal compliance associated to run the cryptocurrency exchange in Australia. The company has also launched its Token Sale, which has already completed its pre-sale on the 30th of April, sold 5 million XOXO tokens.
The Token Sale was initiated to fund this expansion and the creation of new products and services, and will go live on the 5th of May and will last till the 31st of May, 2018, with 10M XOXO tokens available at a minimum price of USD 2.
Roger Ver (Founder & CEO, Bitcoin.com) and Mate Tokay (COO, Bitcoin.com) are extremely prominent influencers and investors in the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency ecosystem and have played a crucial role in helping Bitxoxo expand out of India.

Contributors into Bitxoxo’s Token Sale will be funding the creation of a BCH Marketplace, BCH E-University Certification Program and a BCH enabled PoS System to name a few. In addition, these funds will be deployed in taking Bitxoxo to markets like Singapore and UAE while expanding the company’s operations in Australia.
