We are EQUOS, a cryptocurrency exchange with a focus on compliance, fairness, trust, and innovation. If you have been following us for a bit, you probably know this already. Our parent company, Diginex, is a crypto financial services company and is listed on NASDAQ — making us the first crypto exchange to list in the US.
Diginex Limited (“Diginex” or the “Company”), a digital assets financial services company, announced today that it has completed its business combination transaction (the “Transaction”) with 8i Enterprises Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: JFK) (“8i”), a special purpose acquisition company (“SPAC”). The Transaction, which was approved at a Special Meeting of Shareholders on September 15, 2020, creates the first listed company on Nasdaq with a cryptocurrency exchange.
A lack of regulation and transparency in the digital asset sphere has been cited as deterrent for institutional adoption of crypto, but this reticence is now receding with the emergence of trusted next-generation exchanges that place market integrity at their core.
