Ripple XRP joins Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange

Blockchain , Cryptocurrencies

The Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX), an institutional-grade, regulated and insured token sale platform and digital asset exchange, has today added Ripple (XRP) to its Digital Asset Exchange (GBX-DAX), a state-of-the-art exchange created with the high expectations of professional crypto-traders in mind. 

Nick Cowan, Managing Director and Founder of GSX (Gibraltar Stock Exchange) Group Limited, said, “Ripple is a major player within the blockchain industry. In ways similar to our work at the GSX Group, it aims to re-shape the old methods of finance and banking, transforming payments through blockchain technology. XRP is a globally traded token and by joining the GBX-DAX it further extends its liquidity and reach.”

Ripple was created to bridge digital asset exchanges, payment providers, and banks via RippleNet for frictionless money transfers globally. RippleNet utilises advanced blockchain technology, boasting scalability and interoperability between networks. XRP, the digital asset used within the Ripple ecosystem, is a source of liquidity for their customers, which include major institutions such as Santander, Standard Chartered, and American Express.

The GBX-DAX is a digital asset exchange  built on institutional-grade best practices and good governance, derived from the capital markets experience gained through the GBX’s parent company, the Gibraltar Stock Exchange (GSX), an EU-regulated stock exchange. The GBX-DAX platform has been designed to be highly intuitive and easy to use. From strict verification requirements to the listing of a wide range of assets, every aspect of the GBX-DAX works towards creating the most professional and secure trading environment possible.

“In November last year, we were granted a full licence to operate by the Gibraltar Financial Services Commision (GFSC) and, following this, we introduced insurance coverage for assets listed on the GBX-DAX. As we move into 2019, we plan to build on this momentum with new digital assets listed on the GBX-DAX, with Ripple as the first of these new tokens,” concluded Cowan.
