Virtual Currency Systems ("VCS"), a subsidiary of Itex Corporation, today announced at the 26th Annual Roth Capital Conference at the Ritz-Carlton in Dana Point, California, it is offering licenses for its cloud-hosted virtual currency software platform to businesses and entrepreneurs worldwide.

ITEX Corporation, The Membership Trading CommunitySM, utilizes the platform to power its own b2b business model and virtual currency, the ITEX dollar. VCS is offering the hosted operating system to enterprising businesses and end users interested in creating a centralized virtual currency model. A centralized system determines the amount of currency in circulation, based on many factors, including the needs of its consumer or business customers.

"Virtual currencies that supplement cash, check and credit card transactions or are used as promotional or reward tools are increasingly used in a variety of business models. As the marketplace becomes more innovative and the acceptance of these currencies grows, VCS is well positioned to support the development of this emerging industry," stated Steven White, CEO of Virtual Currency Systems.

"Encrypted digital currencies like Bitcoin, Ripple or Litecoin are decentralized peer-to-peer payment platforms without a centralized authority. In contrast, VCS utilizes a centralized system where the licensee determines by its own policies and business objectives how to distribute, market, redeem and/or convert its own branded virtual currency."

Mr. White concluded, "Our virtual currency platform is hosted on Windows Azure, a global cloud platform that offers the scalability and reliability that VCS requires to run efficiently."
