BTL Group LTD - (TSX VENTURE:BTL) ("BTL" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has been invited to showcase its blockchain technology at the BC Tech Summit, January 18th & 19th, 2016 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
At the Summit, BTL will be launching Interbit, it's remittance platform, with a live demo showing real-time remittances and displaying the low transaction costs of those remittances. The live Interbit demo will demonstrate the ability of this platform to significantly reduce the cost of remitting funds from Canada to the Philippines and Mexico. In addition, BTL has accepted invitations to meet during the event with a number of companies seeking opportunities to innovate using blockchain technology. BTL seeks to build on its accomplishments by developing strategic business relationships and a client base for its innovative blockchain technologies.
"Now that core development of the Interbit platform is completed, BTL will be working on the development of strategic business relationships to embed this platform into broad based remittance products, while expanding the number of countries to which customers will be able to remit money," said Guy Halford-Thompson, CEO of BTL. "Strategically leveraging blockchain technology into our Interbit platform should reduce the cost of remittances by over 80%."
BTL has also started development on its second product offering, BTL Digital Asset Management ("DAM"), an immutable data store built on blockchain technology. By leveraging blockchain technology, DAM seeks to provide enterprise level customers secure data manipulation platforms that can be applied to numerous industries. DAM will have many applications, including to auditing, data security, biometric authentication and settlement.
With the completion of core development on Interbit and its listing on the TSX Venture Exchange, BTL has achieved the material milestones that it set out for 2015. In 2016, BTL will continue to utilize blockchain technology to build innovative real world applications that will aim to solidify its role as a leader in the continually growing and evolving blockchain sector.
