MINDEX Secures Fourth License, Launches First Virtual Assets Marketplace in Mauritius

MINDEX secures fourth licence

MINDEX has achieved another milestone, securing their fourth license from the Financial Services Commission (FSC). This latest license allows them to launch the very first virtual assets marketplace in Mauritius, marking a significant step forward for the nation’s financial landscape.

MINDEX leverages blockchain technology to offer innovative financial products within a regulated framework. This has instilled confidence in both established market players and retail investors who were previously hesitant to enter the digital asset space. The new marketplace provides a central and user-friendly platform for these participants to trade various virtual assets, including tokenized real-world assets, stablecoins, and cryptocurrencies.

This achievement strengthens MINDEX’s existing digital asset ecosystem, which already encompasses a digital securities exchange, secure custody solutions, and a clearing & depository house. The marketplace provides a seamless way to interact with these services, fostering greater financial inclusion.

Industry leaders like MINDEX Chairperson Manisha Dookhony and Christian Angseesing, Chairman of MINDEX Digital Custodian, see this development as a game-changer for Mauritius. It positions the island nation as a leading FinTech hub in Africa, actively supporting technological innovation and contributing to the success of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).

MINDEX CEO Jessica Naga emphasizes the benefits for investors. This platform offers a secure and regulated environment for them to explore and access investment opportunities across Africa.

With the launch of the virtual assets marketplace, MINDEX solidifies its commitment to building a complete digital ecosystem for Africa. They aim to leverage blockchain technology’s transformative power to streamline financial services and boost liquidity throughout the continent.
