Bitcoin Group relodges IPO prospectus, as ASIC withdraws stop order

Further to LeapRate’s earlier article on Bitcoin Group’s IPO being rescheduled, there has been some development regarding this topic.

The Melbourne-based Bitcoin miner on Friday (September 4, 2015) officially relodged its prospectus with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). The regulator, which had issued several stop orders regarding the planned IPO on the Australian Securities Exchange, on Friday revoked the stop orders.
