AAX, a tier-one digital asset exchange and financial service provider, is pleased to announce that they have joined Global Digital Finance (GDF), the industry membership body promoting the adoption of best practices and conduct standards for cryptocurrencies, digital assets and finance technologies.
AAX will join GDF alongside global leaders in the crypto-asset space, including BCGroup,
Circle, Coinbase, Consensys, Diginex, R3 and Solidus Labs, but also ING Group and London Stock Exchange Group. GDF members regularly convene to think through and articulate market and conduct standards in a shared engagement forum with market participants, policymakers and regulators.
AAX has also registered their self-attestation, committing to uphold industry standards around market integrity, KYC/AML, token sales and issuing.
“AAX was built in anticipation of increased institutional participation in the crypto markets, and the expectation that standards around performance, security and integrity would be raised in the face of mainstream adoption,” says Ben Caselin, AAX’s Head of Research and Strategy.
“We believe the lasting success of any attempt to promote codes of conduct, as well as the efficacy of research in advancing discourse, to be dependent on the extent to which these efforts are community-driven and inclusive of a wide array of perspectives. GDF has gained credibility in the crypto community as well as with regulators and policy makers. As such, GDF provides a unique meeting point for various stakeholders and we’re excited to be part of the conversation.”
AAX is a deep-liquidity and deeply trusted cryptocurrency exchange that is favored by more than half a million users. Powered by London Stock Exchange’s LSEG Technology, AAX offers crypto futures contracts, 50+ spot pairs, P2P fiat trading, savings products and top-grade API connectivity. AAX enables users to buy Bitcoin easily via its OTC and Quick Buy platforms and supports over 20 fiat currencies. AAX.COM
