The transaction was completed through an asset purchase agreement, the details of which were not provided.

Bitvo clients meanwhile will be migrated to the Bitbuy platform, with no action required on their end.

“The acquisition of Bitvo’s clients represents a non-dilutive acquisition for WonderFi, with immediate cash flow, increased scale, and an expected payback period of less than six months. This acquisition also accelerates our growth efforts, and diversifies our client profile with Bitvo’s strong institutional client base. We look forward to working with the Bitvo team to ensure a smooth transition,” commented Dean Skurka, CEO of WonderFi.

WonderFi Tech last traded at $0.14 on the TSX.
