QUOINEX Review 2019

QUOINEXReview

Quoinex is a financial technology (fintech) company that offers multiple products powered by blockchain technology. In addition to providing the trading and exchange of cryptocurrencies, Quione also a global liquidity platform which is backed by the proprietary QASH token. Quione is fully regulated in Japan by the Japanese Financial Services Authority (JFSA) with cryptocurrency license number 0002.

  1. Quoinex Exchange
  2. Qryptos
  3. Qash
  4. Liquid +

Supported Countries

Traditionally, the JFSA has encouraged financial services and fintech companies that it licenses to provide services to the Japanese public only, and discourages the sourcing of clients from outside Japan. Quoine’s offices are however located not only in Japan, but also in Singapore, and Vietnam, with the Japan office serving as its headquarters. The appeal of the cryptocurrency trading products on Quoinex is global in orientation and all countries of the world are accepted, with the exception of Iran, Myanmar and North Korea.
