The Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX), a subsidiary of the Gibraltar Stock Exchange, has their token sale event in just a few days. Whitelisting closes on February 4, 2018, and the sale will launch February 7 and close February 14, or once the hard cap is reached. This crowdsale event follows a successful presale closed December 2017 that raised $21 million.

GBX aims to be an institutional grade token sale and exchange platform, and one of the first fully licensed and regulated exchanges operated by an EU regulated financial entity. Gibraltar’s Distributed Ledger Technology Regulatory Framework came into effect Jan. 1, regulating any distributed ledger project used to transmit or store value belonging to others and that is not regulated under another financial services framework. The GBX platform and all listed assets will fall under this jurisdiction, requiring a strict due diligence and admissions process that result in a higher standard of token issuance and trading compared to the current landscape.

Nick Cowan, CEO of the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange said in a statement, “The introduction of rules-based systems is necessary if the blockchain sector is to reach maturity and if actors are to be assured of market stability. Based upon principles of decentralization and community consensus, the GBX seeks to create a new era of trust, openness and global acceptance for the crypto industry, one quality token listing at a time.”

Rock (RKT) tokens issued by GBX will be used primarily as a medium of exchange on the platform and will also be used for early access to designated token sales, listing and sponsorship fees, as grants from the Blockchain Initiative Center, and as payment for any services rendered by GBX in preparing teams for token sales or listings. Funds from the sale of RKT tokens will be used to further development on the GBX trading platform and fintech ecosystem and to develop the capacity to support the business needs of blockchain projects at any stage of their development.

Cowan added, “The sale of RKT in tandem with a widespread user base will help the GBX achieve its intention of becoming a world-leading, institutional-grade token sale platform and cryptocurrency exchange. To see such overwhelming support for our project already in our successful presale period is both inspiring and humbling. The GBX is working to lay the foundation for the global expansion of a regulated cryptocurrency market with all proceeds raised in our token sale event helping further this vision and make it a reality.”
