Gibraltar blockchain exchange now open to the public

The Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange’s Digital Asset Exchange (GBX) is now open to the public, trading with six cryptocurrencies including its own.

Trading for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, and the exchange’s Rock Token (RKT) has now begun following test run of 300 people in June. GBX combines being a cryptocurrency exchange and an ICO marketplace, vetting for advertising and sponsorship that sits within established guidelines.

Nick Cowan, CEO of GBX, said: “Today marks the most exciting development on the GBX journey thus far and is a significant indication that Gibraltar is open for business.”

RKT raised $27 million during its ICO, with around 3,500 people investing in the coin.

Back in March Cowan claimed to have ‘up to 200’ applications from prospective ICOs ahead of launch, saying: “GBX has to date been approached by up to 200 applicants seeking to launch their ICO through the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange.

“[GBX is] scaling up its regulatory team to cope with the demand to ensure it hits its target of five day turnaround on ICO applications for first response.”
