Noteworthy steps and milestones in 2022 are expected to lead the company forward
During 2022, the company has taken significant actions to put in place innovative technology that allow the pioneering of a new and responsible digital economy. Management focused on forging new and strategic global partnerships and advancing multiple initiatives to expand the company’s services, promote brand recognition and drive future revenues.
The company reached a major milestone when it launched INX.One, the world’s first fully regulated platform integrating cryptocurrency and SEC-registered security token trading, investment opportunities in primary security token offerings, and related capital raise services under a single platform available 24/7 to retail and institutional investors in the U.S. and globally. INX.One is integrated with multiple public blockchains through INX proprietary technology and is intended to be blockchain agnostic.
INX’s main focus remains on creating a go-to holistic solution for founders and corporate partners to raise capital utilizing SEC-regulated security tokens.
Taking advantage of the path created by the issuance of the INX Token, since the third quarter of 2022 and to date, INX has launched its capital raise services and brought four (4) primary offerings to market, which are available for investment exclusively on INX.One.
It includes Trucpal, a digital financial and tax software company for logistics-industry-based in China; Advent Entertainment, an entertainment, gaming, and virtual reality company based in Utah, US; Treasure Experience, a virtual marine exploration and treasure hunting company based in Florida, US; and TurnCoin, digital trading cards in talented individuals trading platform company, based in Gibraltar. After the completion of the primary raises, security tokens in these entities and projects will be listed on INX.One for trading in the secondary market.
In addition, during 2022, the Millennium Sapphire (“MSTO”) Token was also added for secondary market trading on INX.One. Token holders are entitled to receive dividends from Millennium’s NFT Studio.
Within the cryptocurrency offering, the company offers select digital assets and stablecoins for trading, investing, and funding of accounts. Moreover, the company continues to expand its money transmitter licenses and registrations, allowing the company to offer cryptocurrencies in 43 U.S. states and territories. INX.One also continues to expand its offering to over 160 countries globally.
The company continues to lead in providing solid, sustainable solutions for the future, a critical, much-required effort in today’s climate.
In December 2022, the company announced a strategic partnership with SICPA, a global leader in authentication, revenue realization, and secure traceability solutions, to help governments develop innovative and sovereign central bank digital currency ecosystems. The joint venture, incorporated in Switzerland, combines both blockchain-based infrastructure and digital cash technologies to address the key requirements for Central Bank Digital Currencies, including privacy, security, financial inclusion, resilience, and more – paving the way for the development and launch of a secure and scalable environment for all central banks to deploy digital currencies.
As INX predicted, security tokens are beginning to transform the ownership and trading of assets. The company is geared to provide a secure alternative in its multiple uses, such as recovery security tokens, digital bonds, and tokenized shares. As the market for security tokens continues to grow and rapidly expand across multiple blockchains, the company put efforts and resources into educating people worldwide to provide the required clarity of the new standard.
To execute the long-term vision, during 2022, the company strengthened its senior global leadership by filling a key role within the company, the Chief Financial Officer, who plays a strategic role in advancing the company’s vision and navigating the current market and regulatory environment. The company also expanded its Board of Directors to include two global financial leaders, who themselves made the transition from the traditional to the digital economy and will therefore guide and assist in promoting INX’s mission.
