During the second quarter of 2022, INX Digital, the company's cryptocurrency trading platform, launched a referral program, quickly followed by the launch of a native mobile application for the trading of digital assets. The INX app is available on both Google Play and iOS app stores. These two significant initiatives, combined with other successful marketing efforts, brought over 73,000 new registered users to the INX trading platforms (compared to 17,674 in Q1 2022). To further fulfill its vision of bridging traditional and digital economies, INX continues to create new and innovative alternatives for individuals and businesses, as stated in this report.
The company received significant media coverage with the announcement on June 28, 2022, that INX had signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), a non-binding agreement, with SICPA, the leading provider and longstanding partner and advisor to global central banks. Through its deep expertise in identification and security solutions for physical cash, SICPA, based in Switzerland, develops innovative forgery-proof security features that protect monetary sovereignty. Utilizing INX's technology and blockchain expertise, the planned joint venture between INX and SICPA aims to enable global governments to expand their access to payment infrastructure, facilitate cross-border digital remittances, maintain sovereign currency control through rigorous regulation, and introduce privacy and safety measures. Under the terms of the MOU, the Company will engage in a joint venture with SICPA to establish a blockchain solution for Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and the supporting ecosystem to further bolster monetary sovereignty and growth for countries within the global digital economy.
The company's mission became even more critical and relevant in light of the growing economic crisis combined with volatility in the crypto markets. INX has consistently committed to adopting all regulatory requirements to create a trustworthy ecosystem. It is fully regulated on both its cryptocurrency and digital securities platforms.
In the past few months, traditional market and digital market events have highlighted the importance of both solid regulatory structures overlayed with strong liquidity risk management, the foundation on which the company was established.
During the second quarter of 2022, the company added multiple cryptocurrency assets to its cryptocurrency INX Digital trading platform. In addition, a number of engagement letters with new potential global issuers of digital securities were signed, as a growing number of companies on-board the unique solution for primary offerings, token management services, secondary listing, and trading offered by INX Securities.
The number of digital security issuers is projected to grow through the end of this year.
On the advocacy front, INX became a leading member of the Global Digital Asset & Cryptocurrency Association ("Global DCA") to further lead the establishment of a tokenized economy and expand its mission of bringing regulated digital asset opportunities to all investors.
In the past quarter, INX accumulated multiple money transmitter licenses, allowing it to offer cryptocurrencies to customers in 40 U.S. states and territories. It currently welcomes residents in every U.S. state for securities trading. Meanwhile, it is growing a pipeline of exclusive issuers to bring to the market as either IPOs or private offerings.
INX CEO Shy Datika: "INX has a clear mission to create access to diverse and innovative financial opportunities for all. In the past few months, we've seen this mission come to life through the adoption of new services, global partnerships, and collaborations. Furthermore, our unprecedented commitment to a regulated environment for cryptocurrency and digital securities trading has become more relevant than ever. Regulators are paying closer attention to cryptocurrencies, and current market conditions highlight the importance of regulation as a cornerstone. We are gradually establishing more avenues for responsibly accessing cryptocurrencies and digital securities. We will continue to design and strengthen INX's regulated digital asset trading ecosystem and lead the transition between traditional and digital economies."
