Social trading and investment platform eToro unveiled the launch of eToroX at Paris Blockchain Week today. The new platform is a digital asset exchange regulated by the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission.
Doron Rosenblum, Managing Director of eToroX, said, “We are proud to be one of the first companies in the world to obtain a license for cryptoassets, and one of only a handful of regulated exchanges in the crypto space.”
The exchange supports six cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, ether, ripple, dash, bitcoin cash, and litecoin. eToroX will also support eight fiat stablecoins, including:
- eToro New Zealand Dollar (NZDX)
- eToro Japanese Yen (JPYX)
- eToro Swiss Franc (CHFX)
- eToro United States Dollar (USDEX)
- eToro Euro (EURX)
- eToro Pound Sterling (GBPX)
- eToro Australian Dollar (AUDX)
- eToro Canadian Dollar (CADX)
“In the coming weeks and months we will add more cryptoassets, stablecoins and tokens to the exchange and will work with other exchanges to encourage them to list our growing range of stablecoins,” Rosenblum added.
eToro, which has 15 cryptocurrencies on its platform, launched eToroX in 2018 to support tokenized asset trading. eToroX’s cryptocurrency wallet and, soon, exchange, help drive the company’s aim to allow everyone to trade, invest, and save.
“Just as eToro has opened up traditional markets for investors, we want to do the same in the tokenized world. We want to bring crypto and tokenized assets to a wider audience, allowing them to trade with confidence,” said Yoni Assia, co-founder and CEO of eToro. “This is the future of finance. Blockchain will eventually ‘eat’ traditional financial services through tokenization.”
eToro most recently showcased CopyFunds for Partners at FinovateEurope 2017. Originally known for being a social trading platform, the company began pioneering bitcoin trading in 2013 via CFDs and in 2017 allowed clients to trade and invest in Ethereum, XRP, Litecoin, and other cryptocurrencies. eToro has raised $223 million since it was founded in 2007.
