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 and giving access to these investment opportunities to investors globally.
Taking advantage of the path created by the issuance of the INX Token, in the fourth quarter of 2022, INX has launched its capital raises via the issuance of security tokens.
In Q2 2023, three (3) new primary offerings were brought to investors and customers of INX, exclusively on INX.One trading platform, with a total of seven (7) new SEC-registered security tokens listed since Q4 2022 and currently raising capital in their primary offerings. Following their initial offering, security tokens are expected to be offered to INX customers for trading in the secondary market on INX.One alongside already actively trading INX Token.
The primary offerings on INX.One now include Trucpal (TRUCPAL), a digital financial and tax software company for logistics-industry-based in China; Advent Entertainment (ATX), an entertainment, gaming, and virtual reality company based in Utah, US; Treasure Experience (TRZX), a virtual marine exploration and treasure hunting company based in Florida, US; and TurnCoin (TXC), digital trading cards in talented individuals trading platform company, based in Gibraltar, and the most recent addition of XManna (XMNA), metaverse and web3 technology company focused on expanding commerce and fan engagement in professional sports, advertising and gaming, based in Florida, US; Hashrate Asset Group (HAG), digital assets technology and Bitcoin mining company registered in the British Virgin Islands and based on Singapore; Convertible Concepts North America (CCNA), technology company focused innovative automotive and freight transportation solutions with a proprietary freight system, based in Alberta, Canada, registered in Delaware, US.
The company continued to strengthen its compliance and technology framework by reaching multiple meaningful milestones in Q2 2023.

Moreover, during the quarter, INX further expanded its money transmitter licenses and registrations, allowing the company to offer cryptocurrencies in 46 U.S. states and territories. INX.One also continues to expand its offering globally, with over 160 countries supported on INX.One.
Strategic Partnership and Collaboration with Republic
During Q2 2023, INX entered into a strategic collaboration agreement with Republic (“Republic”), a global financial firm operating a digital merchant bank and a network of investment platforms, pursuant to which the parties will seek to expand the breadth and depth of tokenization infrastructure and access to digital assets for investors worldwide. Concurrently, Republic also agreed to make an investment of $5.25M in INX at an approximate US$50 million pre-money valuation (the “Transaction”) and intends to enter into a non-binding term sheet, which contemplates a transaction in which Republic will acquire 100% of INX common equity at a valuation of up to $120 million.
By combining INX’s digital trading infrastructure and expertise in tokenized primary offerings with Republic’s well-established primary distribution, both companies are poised to introduce a wide range of compliant solutions for both primary and secondary markets and redefine the way capital is raised, empowering both institutional and retail investors globally.
“As the market for security tokens continues to grow and rapidly expands across multiple asset classes gaining momentum among institutions, it is evident that the steps we have taken in the past years were crucial and built the right foundation for INX to further grow and flourish. INX will continue to invest significant resources into educating investors and issuers globally to provide the required clarity on the new technology and opportunities it enables,” remarked Shy Datika INX CEO.
