Richard Byworth, Chief Executive Officer at EQONEX Group, said: “Fiscal year 2022 is set to be yet another transformative year for EQONEX. Throughout the past year, most of our core business lines began operations which positioned us to start the new fiscal year rapidly scaling our business. As we began the quarter, EQONEX Exchange saw explosive growth in trading volumes and was able to transition from a more incentivized fee structure to one where the vast majority our trading volumes are fee paying, resulting in substantial and sustainable revenue growth. The Exchange generated US$2.4 million in revenue during the quarter with commission rates now coming into our targeted average range of 2-4 basis points per trade.”

“Launched in April this year, the EQO token has been instrumental in driving that growth. Investors have realized that by trading on EQONEX Exchange, their profitability can be significantly enhanced due to the structure of the token. EQO, and the growth in volumes it has generated, have acted as a fly wheel for market makers and institutional clients alike in joining the platform. In the traditional financial world, we say flow begets flow, and here it is no different. As we add more participants and grow our supporting ecosystem it becomes very apparent to all stakeholders that our exchange is creating quite a differentiated profile of flow.” 

The structural design of our ecosystem means market volatility is good for business: directional moves matter less. While the remaining parts of our business did not contribute materially to revenues yet, they are primed to do so as the year continues. Volumes, assets and revenues are all increasing as traction with our key targets of institutional clients grows. This fiscal year will no doubt be yet another transformative year for the company, and we look forward to delivering increasing value to our shareholders.”
