The Walt Disney Company, one of the world’s leading producers of entertainment, could become a new owner of two cryptocurrency exchanges – Bitstamp and Korbit.
Back in January, NXC Chairman Kim Jung-ju announced plans to sell 98.6% of NXC shares. Kakao Corp, Tencent, Netmarble Corp, and Electronic Arts Inc were among the potential buyers. Kim, however, seems to be particularly interested in Disney.
As a reminder, in October 2018, NXC acquired a majority ownership stake in Bitstamp through its subsidiary investment firm NXMH. NXC also owns a 65 percent stake in South Korean cryptocurrency exchange Korbit.
