BlockQuake, an upcoming U.S.-based digital asset exchange and marketplace, is reportedly aiming to launch in June 2019. Antonio Brasse, Co-Founder and CEO of BlockQuake revealed the exciting news on Twitter earlier this week.
Founded in 2018, BlockQuake describes itself as a fintech company that is on a mission to be the NASDAQ/NYSE of cryptocurrency/digital asset exchanges through its first line of business. The company also aims to be the “industry standard” amongst exchanges for global regulatory compliance and transparency.
“BlockQuake was formed in early 2018 to address the need for trust and transparency in the blockchain and cryptocurrency communities through the development of a centralized cryptocurrency trading exchange platform.”
BlockQuake claims to be the first major global exchange to do the following:
- Tackle decoupling with multiple base cryptocurrencies with multiple fiats paired up against hundreds of cryptocurrencies.
- Accept retirement and other trusts, as well as corporate accounts.
- Be regulatory proactive.
- Be scalable and sustainable for a rapid growing market.
Speaking about the platform’s progress, Brasse stated on Twitter:
Still targeting a June launch and our team had a good catch up meeting yesterday with Ripple and @PrimeTrustCo and we’re meeting with our friends at @PolymathNetwork today. It’s great to see how everyone’s visions are aligned 😉
