The Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX), a new cryptocurrency exchange based in Gibraltar (UK), has announced a soft launch for its platform. The early access period will have 300 pre-qualified retail accounts and a select number of institutional participants trading a number of available digital assets.
The first official users of the cryptocurrency operator, partaking in its soft launch, will have full access to the GBX exchange right from the start and will be required to give feedback on their experience using the exchange.
The feedback provided by the first retail and institutional users will help the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange to make substantial improvements to the platform in order to better cater to investors’ needs, including the development of the finalized User Experience (UX) of the GBX.
Nick Cowan, Chief Executive Officer of the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange, commented:
“This serves as a significant step in our journey to becoming a leading digital asset exchange and token sale platform. The soft launch of the platform will mean that we can continue to work as effectively as possible toward providing an institutional-grade token sales springboard for utility tokens and top-quality digital asset exchange for the global blockchain and trading communities. This is the first step of many in our provision of exceptional service to our users and community.”
“We are dedicated to offering our community a premier experience. Our early-stage users will be instrumental in allowing the GBX team to develop the platform so that it meets the needs and requirements of our users across the globe. This is another step in our continued work towards the development of a robust token market, characterized by fairness, transparency, efficiency, and safety. As a pioneer of industry best practices, we recognize the necessity of providing a top-class service to all those interested in trading or being listed upon the GBX,” Cowan added.
The digital asset exchange’s Sponsor Firm network was also updated by the recent addition of Blockchain Worx as a sponsor firm. The network now boasts ten sponsors across the world.
The company also boasts GBX GRID, a token sale platform which is aiming to become a world-leading institutional-grade platform for initial coin offerings. GBX GRID is hosting the Strykz token sale later this month, in collaboration with award-winning Stryking Entertainment GmbH, which focuses on the creation and support of interactive entertainment platforms based on high quality online and mobile games for the digital mass market. The ICO will be the second token sale launched upon the GBX GRID following the Traceto.io early access token sale.
“2018 has been a year of great progress and success for the GBX thus far. We have successfully launched the GBX GRID, which has already hosted its first token sale, and are continuously adding promising blockchain businesses and solutions providers to our Sponsor Firms network. Today’s launch provides a basis upon which we will continue to build as the year continues, and will leave us in a position of strength to continue our work towards promoting industry best practices within the blockchain and token markets across the globe”, Cowan concluded.
