Hashkey Expands to Retail Users with New App
HashKey exchange is one of the two virtual asset exchanges approved to serve retail investors in Hong Kong.
As reported earlier, the group is also introducing the HashKey Exchange app. This application, which recently received the approval of the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), is designed to offer comprehensive mobile trading capabilities.
Through the app, Hongkongers can purchase bitcoin and ether using either Hong Kong dollars or US dollars, directly deposited from local bank accounts.
The launch of the HashKey Exchange app aligns with the Hong Kong government’s efforts to invigorate the virtual asset sector.
These endeavors include the introduction of a new mandatory licensing scheme for cryptocurrency platforms, aimed at allowing them to sell tokens with substantial market capitalization to retail traders.
Earlier today, Hong Kong’s treasury secretary said during the fintech week that the JPEX scandal won’t deter them from continuing to develop the web3 market in the city.
