Latest News: Cavirtex Acquired by VC-Backed Coinsetter
Coinsetter, the global bitcoin exchange based in New York City, announced this week the acquisition of Canadian Virtual Exchange, commonly known as CAVIRTEX, a major Canadian bitcoin exchange operating since 2011. The acquisition marks the first major consolidation in the bitcoin exchange market, and represents one of the largest M&A deals to take place in the burgeoning digital currency space.
Alongside its acquisition, CAVIRTEX today has reopened its doors to customers and resumed trading under Coinsetter’s leadership. Both exchanges will remain open for business in their own names, sharing technology, capital, management and banking access to maximize the value to traders. CAVIRTEX will move to employ Coinsetter’s technology stack, and incorporate their advanced security standards and practices. Previous account holders at CAVIRTEX and Coinsetter will continue to be able to use their existing login credentials at the same websites to access their accounts.
The acquisition was completed through a negotiated agreement with CAVIRTEX voting shareholders. Coinsetter chief executive Jaron Lukasiewicz has been named CEO of CAVIRTEX and Marshall Swatt will assume the role of CTO of CAVIRTEX, effective today.
Jaron Lukasiewicz, CEO of Coinsetter and CAVIRTEX said, “Coinsetter is proud to make Canadian bitcoiners a core focus of our company through CAVIRTEX, the most profitable and longest-running bitcoin exchange in Canada.

Please do not run the .jar, and if you have, please contact us immediately.
