Openfinance CEO Jim Stonebridge stated that “INX and Openfinance share the same vision of providing a safe and regulated ecosystem for listing and trading of digital assets. We believe that regulatory oversight, combined with liquidity, will make digital assets the financial instrument of choice for companies and investors seeking to access and raise capital. The consolidation of two leading platforms will be the catalyst needed to move this industry forward.”
