Cryptocurrencies have followed an incredible trajectory over the past 12 months, with the total market cap rising from $ 198 billion in April 2020 to over $ 2,000 billion today.
Along with this meteoric rise is growing consumer adoption driven by major announcements from big names, such as Square, Visa and PayPal, who now accept digital assets as a means of payment or settlement.
Electric car maker Tesla announced in February that it would accept bitcoin as a payment method for its cars, while demonstrating its commitment to crypto by making a $ 1.5 billion bitcoin purchase for its balance sheet.
At the same time, the industry has experienced a resurgence of institutional adoption like never before. Hedge funds have rushed into the market, stock investors have flocked to publicly traded crypto companies, and commercial banks are adding more crypto services. While central banks around the world eagerly watch, many are thinking about their own digital currencies.
With such rapid and fundamental changes in the landscape in just 12 months, EQUOS examines what the future of digital money looks like for the next 12 months and years to come.
In tomorrow’s webinar hosted by EQUOS, Roger Ver, Founder of Bitcoin.com, and Richard Byworth, CEO of Diginex, will take a look at what themes are driving the market today and how they will develop in the future. They will examine how traditional models will evolve and how crypto will become a staple in all facets of our lives.
EQUOS to the BCH list
The next webinar follows the decision of the EQUOS Rating Committee to approve the listing of Bitcoin Cash on the exchange in March.
Roger Ver is a strong supporter of BCH, which has larger block sizes to handle massive transaction throughput at high speeds, like real digital money or a true peer-to-peer electronic payment system.
âEQUOS has provided a platform that focuses on delivering innovative products in transparent and fair markets and is happy to list BCH as an ever-evolving, developing and resilient crypto that has successfully passed its rating committee.â , explained EQUOS.
EQUOS, launched in July 2020, is an available institutional-level crypto exchange. EQUOS is part of Diginex (Nasdaq: EQOS), which became the first company listed on Nasdaq with a crypto exchange in October 2020.
Listing Diginex was a milestone for the cryptocurrency industry and opened the door for financial institutions to participate in the digital asset market through a public company.
EQUOS recently launched its own token, EQUOS Origin, which rewards traders with exclusive perks for using EQUOS, such as increased interest, reduced fees, and it can be used as collateral. The Diginex Group also includes digital asset trading technology platform Diginex Access, digital asset custody provider Digivault and investment management firm Bletchley Park Asset Management.
