Diginex is a Hong Kong-based blockchain and fintech development company.[1]

Overview

Diginex was founded in 2018 by Miles Pehlham. In February 2019, the company hired Will McDonough, a former Goldman Sachs vice president who started a brand management company representing NFL quarterback Tom Brady.

In July 2019, Diginex announced that it was going public through a reverse merger with 8i Enterprises Acquisition Corp, and would be listed on Nasdaq. The deal was valued at $276 million, including debt, according to a press release. The company's CEO Richard Byworth said Diginex hoped the deal would give the company "broader market visibility."[2] On July 30, 2020 the company said that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission had approved the upcoming exchange listing which was forecast to occur in late September.[3]

Products and services

Diginex offered financial and tech advisory services, as well as developing software tools for corporate blockchains.[4] It spun off its blockchain enabled "Solutions" business according to a May 30, 2020 announcement in order to focus better on its digital assets business.[5]

The company said it launched EQUOS.io on July 30, 2020. EQUOS.io is a Singapore-based crptocurrency trading platform.[6]

Earlier in July, Diginex announced that it had licensed Tbricks from financial services technology provider Itiviti for use by the company's institutional clients. Tbricks is a risk management engine used in conjunction with trading and portfolio management. [7]
