Former Citadel Securities Global Head of Business Development, Jamil Nazarali, will serve as Managing Director of EDXM and was pleased to share the announcement of the platform with a statement:

It’s interesting to see another cryptocurrency exchange pop up, especially following last week when another major crypto exchange, FTX, just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Nonetheless, with EDX Markets backed by such big players in investments and the stock market, this may be a little better than most crypto companies that seemingly collapsed overnight or lost millions of dollars quickly. As EDX Markets launches, stay tuned for more updates and news on cryptocurrency and the NFT space.
