Diginex Launches Its Digital Assets Exchange, Equos
The listing has been delayed since March due to the worldwide coronavirus crisis. The listing would unlock a new achievement in the US stock markets where many private startups compete from different parts of the world and are insufficiently regulated.

With its deal with the merger acquisition company successful, Equos will be poised to become the first digital asset exchange listed in the United States. The exchange will facilitate cryptocurrency spot trading initially. They have intentions of launching the perpetual swaps, futures, options, and derivative products soon.
