A cryptocurrency exchange holding its launch celebration at an established institution as highly regarded as London Stock Exchange is nothing short of a landmark moment in the crypto industry. AAX is an institutional-grade platform, for everyone, and that is reflected in everything we do.
We started this morning with interviews with publications from the crypto world, mainstream media, and key opinion leaders. In addition to our launch, there was great interest in how AAX is strengthening its relationship with London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) in the context of joining LSEG’s Partner Platform, but also in the partnerships we are pursuing.
Following media engagements, our CMO, Sheel Kohli, welcomed a distinguished league of guests which included top institutional investors, and other participants in finance from around the world. Robert Barnes, CEO of Turquoise, and Alex Riachi, who leads business development and spoke on behalf of LSEG, shared their perspectives on the relationship between AAX and LSEG as well as the significance of the event.
Our CEO, Thor Chan, and COO, Michael Wong, spoke about what it took to build AAX, our plans for the future, but also what opportunities they see in the crypto market and the financial landscape at large. After the talks, and a viewing of our special brand video, there was an opportunity for networking.
Guests who signed up to our platform were given a welcome bonus of $50 USD worth of Bitcoin each and were automatically included in a lucky draw. At the end of the event, three winners were given 100 EOS, 10 Ethereum, and 1 Bitcoin, respectively.
The day ended with a VIP dinner for some of our distinguished guests at the Merchant’s Tavern in the heart of London.
