With EQONEX’s recent launch and Nasdaq listing, we thought it appropriate to tell you a little more about us.
EQONEX was established to drive digital asset and blockchain adoption for widespread use. We saw an opportunity to create an institutionally focused fintech player that understood the nuances of the emerging industry but remained compliant and fair to clients and regulators.
EQONEX has four divisions: our Exchange, our Capital Markets business, Custody and Asset Management. Our Exchange encompasses EQONEX and our trading businesses. Our Capital Markets business originates digital assets for companies and clients looking for alternative means of funding. Our Custody operations lie within Digivault, our warm and cold digital asset custody solution. Finally, our Asset Management business provides an ideal on-ramp into digital assets for institutional investors.
For the purposes of this article, let us dive into our Exchange.
EQONEX’s core business line is its crypto exchange. It is a response to EQONEX’s view of what is currently missing in the crypto industry: a compliant, fair, and trustworthy crypto exchange that differentiates itself with sophisticated product, available for everyone to use.
EQONEX aims to bring institutional and retail investors together to provide the ultimate place to trade in a compliant and fair way, and introduces the best features from the traditional finance investment industry to crypto. Currently, EQONEX offers a spot product for crypto investing, and with perpetuals, dated futures, and options coming soon, it will provide a rich trading experience that is unsurpassed by any other exchange.
EQONEX’s Exchange division also includes Access, our trading system, which allows investors in multiple exchanges to execute algorithmic trading strategies through a single, unified interface. A consolidated portfolio provides institutional-grade management to adeptly assess your market exposure, along with other checks and balances to control your risk.
EQONEX was listed in October of 2020 on Nasdaq, making EQONEX the first crypto exchange to be listed in the United States, and is aiming to create a new standard for traders and investors everywhere.
EQONEX is building the bridge between traditional finance and digital assets. By providing a fair, compliant, trustworthy marketplace, featuring a suite of innovative product, EQONEX hopes to drive crypto adoption across the world.

While today is a day of celebration, we’d also like to take the opportunity to reflect on some of our successes over the last year.
MATIC, the native token of the Polygon platform, has been one of the best-performing coins of 2021, with an overall increase in value of over 12,000%. What's more, the price spike isn't a result of speculative capital at play, rather an increase in adoption by Polygon's core users.
