Suretypedia Converts to a #Crowdsourced Platform

gbafNews28

Suretypedia, the free encyclopedia for surety bonds, launches a major upgrade to https://www.suretypedia.com/, which provides a brand new interface and allows surety experts to contribute articles, update information and submit forms on its vast encyclopedia of surety bonds. The new home page provides users a dashboard to easily navigate the thousands of dedicated surety bond pages, browse featured articles, news, upcoming events and legislative updates affecting the surety industry.

In August 2018, we opened up our entire database of downloadable, interactive bond forms and saw an explosion of activity on the site with many industry experts reaching out with a desire to contribute content, update bond forms and generally further Suretypedias mission. At that moment, we knew we had the opportunity to transform our platform to a crowdsourced treasure trove of content powered by the Suretypedia community, said Bjorn Simundson, Founder/CEO of Suretypedia creator, Moonshot Works. Providing our community with a single platform to engage and learn from one another poses tremendous benefit to the industry. We expect our database and content to continue to expand as a go-to resource for all of our users, Simundson added.

We are extremely pleased with the enhanced functionality of the site. Surety professionals, principals and obligees alike will be able to engage on a single platform, which is a unique concept in the marketplace. The Suretypedia team will vet all contributed content to ensure Suretypedia remains a trusted source of information on surety bonds, allowing our Contributors to raise their profile as thought leaders in the surety community. We cant wait to further engage with the Surety community! Simundson said.

Suretypedia began in 2018 as an encyclopedic reference for every surety bond. With this latest enhancement, the site is rapidly becoming the go-to resource for all things surety.

gbafNews28

Diginex is the first company with a cryptocurrency exchange to be listed on Nasdaq

HONG KONG, Oct. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Diginex Limited ("Diginex" or the "Company"), a digital assets financial services company, announced today that it has completed its business combination transaction (the "Transaction") with 8i Enterprises Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: JFK) ("8i"), a special purpose acquisition company ("SPAC"). The Transaction, which was approved at a Special Meeting of Shareholders on September 15, 2020, creates the first listed company on Nasdaq with a cryptocurrency exchange.

Diginex Limited will trade on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol "EQOS" where it will offer investors the opportunity to participate in the growth of digital assets. The Company’s warrants will trade under the ticker "EQOSW".

Approximately US$50 million was raised, comprising both Diginex’s private raise completed in advance of the listing and the cash remaining in the SPAC. This will strengthen the Company’s balance sheet and will enable it to realize its vision to build a digital assets ecosystem that offers innovative product and services that are compliant, fair and trusted.

Richard Byworth, CEO of Diginex, commented, "This is a watershed moment for both Diginex and the cryptocurrency industry with the listing of the first-ever company with a crypto exchange on Nasdaq. This also presents the first opportunity for anyone trading in the US capital markets to buy directly into the equity of a digital asset ecosystem and opens the door for financial institutions to participate in the enormous opportunity that digital assets present."

"Diginex offers a unique set of innovative products and institutional-grade infrastructure. Our EQUOS.io exchange is regulatory-focused and will offer features such as segregation of duties, portfolio margining, and cross collateralization, which are not commonly available in the crypto exchange marketplace."

"While EQUOS.io forms the core of our ecosystem, we are also the first company to have an integrated offering comprising a regulated asset manager, cold and warm custody solutions, and capital markets advisory as well as a multivenue trading platform that plugs into some of the world’s leading trading technology providers."

Chi-Won Yoon, Chairman of Diginex said: "We are delighted to have reached this milestone for both the industry and Diginex. The Nasdaq listing demonstrates our commitment to bringing transparency and accountability to the digital assets industry. This should give investors greater assurance about the long-term growth and viability of this asset class."

Chardan acted as a financial advisor and Loeb and Loeb LLP acted as legal counsel to 8i. Winston & Strawn LLP acted as legal counsel to Diginex.
