Bitcoin Group SE holds Annual General Meeting 2019
- High approval rates for all proposed resolutions
- After successful acquisition on the road to further growth
Herford, July 12, 2019 - Bitcoin Group SE (ISIN DE000A1TNV91) today held its Annual General Meeting in Herford for the past 2018 financial year. The shareholders approved the proposals of the management with clear majorities in all agenda items.
The present shareholders of Bitcoin Group SE followed the recommendation of the management to discharge the members of the Board of Directors and the managing directors for the 2018 financial year. Baker Tilly Roelfs AG, Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Munich, was appointed as auditor and group auditor.
After the successful acquisition of futurum bank GmbH (formerly Tremmel Wertpapierhandelsbank GmbH) on July 10, 2019, the managing directors of Bitcoin Group SE reported on developments in the past financial year and glanced into the future. The company aims to further strengthen and expand its position in a dynamically growing crypto market. This includes an expansion of the range of services and the usability of Germany's only regulated trading platform for crypto currencies, Bitcoin.de. In addition, the business model will be further diversified, and new sales are to be tapped. The installation of the first Bitcoin ATMs and the launch of the Bitcoin.de app are among the short-term goals.
"We look to the future with optimism after a robust growth in the 2018 financial year. The dynamic increase in the prices of key crypto currencies and the growing interest of the media will drive our business. We are particular pleased about the successful acquisition of futurum bank GmbH. Now we can continue to work on further developing Bitcoin.de into a crypto currency exchange in the future and on expanding our range of services as a whole," says Managing Director Marco Bodewein.
The voting results are available on Bitcoin Group SE's website at bitcoingroup.com under Investor Relations.

Bitcoin.de is the only licensed Bitcoin marketplace in Germany and Europe's largest Bitcoin marketplace with more than 800,000 customers. After more than 7.5 years of operation, Bitcoin.de has the reputation of being one of the most secure Bitcoin marketplaces in the world. Since users do not transfer euros to a trust account but pay conveniently from their bank account, the euros used for trading are even deposit-backed. The cryptocurrencies managed by Bitcoin.de, on the other hand, are held 98% in secure cold wallets. Bitcoin.de is the first and only Bitcoin trading platform worldwide to have its customer credit balances audited once a year by a publicly appointed German auditing company (last audit as of 25 September 2018, next audit planned for September 2019). The unique integration with a bank account of the Fidor Bank via express trading allows trading to be carried out as quickly as on a stock exchange. In addition to Bitcoin, on Bitcoin.de Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin Gold (BCG) and Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) can be traded against Euro.
