INX Limited is a blockchain-based platform for trading digital securities and cryptocurrencies in accordance with SEC, FINRA and EU regulations.
Founded in 2017 and registered in Gibraltar, INX was founded by financial market, cryptocurrency and technology experts with a shared vision of revolutionizing the world of finance and financial crypto trading.
INX announced in January 2018 its submission of a confidentially-filed draft registration statement to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for an initial public offering of the INX Token.
In August 2020, INX announced its initial public offering of up to 130 million INX Security Tokens. INX set the offering price at $0.90 per Token with a minimum investment of $1,000.
INX intended to use a portion of the net proceeds raised from the sale of INX Tokens in the Offering for the continued development and operation of INX Trading Solutions.
Four days after the INX Security Token IPO was announced, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) declared effective the INX registration statement on Form F-1 filed in connection with the initial public offering. INX, then, became the first SEC Registered (F1) Security Token IPO in US history.
In October, 2020, INX announced its application for listing of its digital security, the INX Token, on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”). Richard Carleton, CEO of the CSE said about this: “The CSE is working hard towards listing solutions that cater to a rapidly changing and increasingly digitized capital markets environment. Digital securities represent a logical evolution in how investment instruments are constructed, issued, and traded on a regulated marketplace. It comes as no surprise that new product innovations are originating from Israel, where the culture of entrepreneurship and technical leadership are a perfect fit with our exchange.”
INX has created a blockchain-based platform for trading digital securities and cryptocurrencies from where they offer a fully-licensed and regulated cryptocurrency, security token and derivatives trading platform.
INX team has over 60 years of combined experience in regulated global financial markets, trading, fintech, banking and brokerage, over 5 years of experience in cryptocurrency and blockchain-related services, and over 30 years of enterprise-grade R&D and system architecture design.
