The extreme volatility of the cryptocurrency markets has long caught the attention of the traditional financial space. However, what started out as outright dismissal has gradually led to increased participation and now, some may argue, institutional traders are leading the charge. As the regulatory framework has become clearer and the infrastructure more resilient and robust, institutional crypto trading has taken off in earnest.
Gold is prestigious. Bitcoin is exciting. Gold is well understood worldwide. Bitcoin is still emerging as an investable asset for many people. Both have significant advantages - and some disadvantages - but what are they and which should you invest in? For professional investors and individuals alike, this debate has become louder as traders assess which asset represents a better hedge.
EQONEX has acknowledged the importance of key partnerships from inception and has sought to integrate its industry-leading solutions with conventional trading tools and platforms, in order to make digital assets and cryptocurrencies more accessible to a growing institutional investor base.
Chi-Won Yoon, EQONEX Chairman, Michael Schwartz, Partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, David Gibson-Moore, Gulf Analytica President and CEO, spoke at the "SPAC to the Future - Wall Street's Hottest Product?" AIM Summit Webinar.
2020 has been a phenomenal year for crypto so far, with bitcoin overtaking gold as the year’s top investment. Paypal’s cryptocurrency announcement this month resulted in bitcoin passing the $12,000 mark. On top of this, U.S. Bitcoin (BTC) Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) may finally become a reality following a milestone announcement out of the US last week.
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.
As governance on digital asset markets reaches equivalence with conventional finance, the banking sector is increasing its involvement in the space.
Stablecoins are displaying astronomical growth, with a new study showing that on-chain activity for these digital assets has increased 800% in the last 12 months. The most liquid are now the most used: ERC20 tokens have pushed Ethereum blockchain daily transactions to their highest since the frothy market days of July 2019. Now — what is a stablecoin and why are we seeing such rapid growth?
One of the most important values that underpins the EQONEX exchange is demonstrating adherence to robust regulatory standards. We have set our sights on becoming the bridge between traditional finance and the existing virtual asset community, and as such we felt it was crucial to align our business to a jurisdiction that had both innovative and trustworthy legislation for virtual currency trading.
Bringing digital assets to the world.
