Diginex CEO Richard Byworth believes more and more crypto-related companies will eventually go public. According to Byworth, this will increase the level of confidence in the industry.
In the meantime, Diginex launches its own cryptocurrency exchange called EQUOS and operates an over-the-counter and custodian service.
Original plans to be listed on NASDAQ were scheduled on March this year, but had been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the change in the listing dates.
Diginex shareholders must approve the decision during the final vote on September 15, and from September 20 to 23, the company will be re-registered on NASDAQ.
