Cryptocurrency exchange BeQuant has launched operations in Malta and opened a new office on the island, the London-based company announced today.
BeQuant Exchange’s Malta division will allow customers to trade a wide range of crypto assets on a safe, two-factor authentication platform. Clients will pay only 0.1% with volume discounts on every market trade. With BeQuant Exchange’s leading API, customers will be able to take full advantage of their trading bot, low latency data and execution feeds.
This comes at a time where cryptocurrency regulation is increasingly important. Malta has led the way in establishing clearer rules and regulation for the asset class, and BeQuant Exchange aims to further establish itself as a leading, well-regulated exchange for serious investment.
The announcement follows BeQuant being named as a keynote speaker for the highly anticipated Delta Summit. The Summit will bring together leaders in the cryptocurrency sector as well as local ministers passionate about the cryptocurrency sector on 3-5 October. A range of topics will be discussed during the event, including Blockchain, KYC and the future of the sector.
For the Delta Summit, BeQuant’s CEO, George Zarya will feature in the panel discussion on Zooming In on Global Trends in Blockchain, Regtech and Digital Asset Regulation. Erik Wilgenhof Plante, chief compliance officer at BeQuant, will also feature in the “Blockchain and AML/KYC – What’s Next” discussion.
Zarya said: “With challenges around Brexit causing the UK regulator to delay any controls on cryptocurrencies, many businesses in the sector are looking for ways to establish themselves as a reliable source for trading and investment. Malta has been pioneering the future of crypto, making it a crypto-friendly jurisdication with due regulatory oversight that is so needed. Our work with the Maltese government has already helped to build BeQuant’s reputation as a trusted exchange in the region.”
The new office will be located in Malta’s business district at St Julian’s.
