Cryptocurrency exchange operator Diginex has announced the start of its listing and trading on Nasdaq.
Digital assets financial services company Diginex Limited announced on Thursday that it has completed a business transaction with 8i Enterprises Acquisition Corp., a Nasdaq-listed special purpose acquisition company, which allows it to list and trade on Nasdaq. The company details:
Diginex Limited will trade on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol ‘EQOS’ where it will offer investors the opportunity to participate in the growth of digital assets.
The announcement adds that the company’s warrants will trade under the ticker symbol EQOSW.
“This is a watershed moment for both Diginex and the cryptocurrency industry with the listing of the first-ever company with a crypto exchange on Nasdaq,” Diginex CEO Richard Byworth commented. “This also presents the first opportunity for anyone trading in the US capital markets to buy directly into the equity of a digital asset ecosystem and opens the door for financial institutions to participate in the enormous opportunity that digital assets present.”
The Diginex group includes cryptocurrency exchange Equos.io, digital asset trading technology platform Diginex Access, digital asset custody provider Digivault, and the investment management business Bletchley Park Asset Management.
The Equos.io exchange claims to be “regulatory-focused” with features such as segregation of duties, portfolio margining, and cross-collateralization. The exchange was launched in July, ahead of the transaction with 8i Enterprises Acquisition Corp., as news.Bitcoin.com previously reported.
