SINGAPORE, May 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Diginex Limited (Nasdaq: EQOS), a digital asset financial services firm, today announced that combined 24-hour spot and derivative volumes on its EQUOS cryptocurrency exchange reached a level record, surpassing US $ 200 million at May 20, 2021. The volume of transactions in the last 30 days has increased by more than 40% for US $ 2.9 billion, just three weeks since the company announced a record US $ 2 billion in 30-day volumes in May 4, 2021.
Jakob Palmstierna, partner at GSR (www.gsr.io), a global leader in digital asset market creation, said today: “The volume growth on EQUOS has been very impressive. As the leading provider of liquidity on the EQUOS exchange, we can see that the volume growth on EQUOS has been very impressive. The trading activity is real and the volumes are real EQUOS has scaled at high speed and this is a testament to the strong financial engineering capabilities of the management team and the successful design of their EQO utility token. We look forward to working closely with Diginex as a valuable long-term partner. “
As a regulatory-focused, institutional-grade exchange, EQUOS is committed to providing transparency to the crypto industry. Diginex’s financial reports are audited as part of its obligations as a Nasdaq listed company in United States. EQUOS does not authorize the completion of the internal market and has put in place rigorous checks and balances to identify and suppress self-matched trades and to clear trade. These are key points of differentiation compared to a large number of exchanges currently in operation.
Diginex operates in multiple jurisdictions, overseen by multiple regulators in globally recognized financial centers, including Singapore, Switzerland, the UK and United States. Digivault, the global custodian of Diginex, was also the first independent custodian of digital assets to receive approval from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) of UK to register as a custodian wallet provider under money laundering regulations.
Diginex senior management brings decades of experience working as regulators under the oversight of global regulators. CEO Richard Byworth was previously Managing Director at Nomura (2000-2018) and Chairman Chi-won yoon was President and CEO, Asia Pacific and Vice President, Wealth Management at UBS (1997-2019).
Richard Byworth, CEO of Diginex said today: “EQUOS is one of the fastest institutional-level exchanges to reach these volume levels. This is even more impressive given that we do not have an internal market maker on exchange and that we have strong procedures in place to ensure that all volumes are comprised of valid trades Our commitment to providing a fair and transparent trading experience, as well as our institutional quality products and solutions, will continue to do increase long-term volumes.
“Our EQO exchange utility token contributes significantly to increasing volumes and customer acquisition. The price of the token, as traded on EQUOS, has proven resilient during recent periods of cryptocurrency price weakness: at about US $ 35,200, down 46% from April 2021. Over a similar period, EQO has remained stable and resilient, going from 0.50 USD at about US $ 0.75, a 50% increase from inception to early April 2021. This validates EQO’s unique structure, which has been specially designed to promote volumes on the exchange and reward clients for trading on the exchange and holding their tokens, “Byworth announcesded.
Chi-won Yoon, President of Diginex, concluded: “Today’s activity update highlights the result of the work the team has done since our listing in October 2020 with strong levels of oversight and control to support corporate strategy. We execute our roadmap in accordance with the interests of shareholders, customers, employees and regulators. Our board, the majority of whom are independent directors, is committed to the highest standards of transparency and surveillance. “
