Aaron Carter, will remain the CEO of XPort Digital.  Mr. Carter has an extensive background in the financial industry and has worked with various fortune 500 companies in investment banking, online brokerage, market data and a prominent US equity exchange. At AlphaPoint, Mr. Carter played a pivotal role in building their whitelist exchange platform and developed a cohesive customer onboarding process that allowed sales to optimize their deal flow and exceed their target goals.  At BATS Global Markets (formerly known as Direct Edge), Mr. Carter developed the exchange’s surveillance and optimization programs which decreased latency and increased their daily trading volume market share while ensuring SEC regulations were adhered to. Mr. Carter has also worked closely with CEZA, the Philippines Cagayan Economic Zone Authority and helped establish their framework for trade data collection and analytics.

“My goal for XPort Digital Limited is to create a company that is, not only a key player in the crypto space, but one of the cutting edge industry leaders that other companies see as a benchmark for performance.  I’m excited to join the TechX team and look forward to building a solid and profitable business.  Merchants, exchanges and other cryptocurrency businesses can connect their cryptocurrencies to the platform and embed our white-label widget in their platform and be up and running within a few days” said Aaron Carter, CEO of Xport.  “Consumers will also be able to purchase cryptocurrencies without signing up for an account on our upcoming website, buybitfast.com in the very near future.

“We are beyond excited to announce the acquisition of XPort Digital.  With the explosion of exchanges and new tokens popping up daily and the lack of fiat to crypto on-ramping services, it’s a great opportunity for Xport and TechX,” said TechX CEO, Peter Green. “XPort’s fiat to crypto on ramping offers the quickest and easiest solution for consumers to buy Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies without setting up an account.”
