Swyftx’s NZ exchange unveiled

Recently, the exchange announced the launch of its New Zealand platform offering a huge range of cryptocurrencies, unlike any other NZ-based crypto exchange. It now offers over 280 crypto assets.

Though the exchange already had a base of 5,000 local customers, with the opening of its NZ version, New Zealand’s digital asset market is likely to grow around NZ$210 million, with 800,000 Kiwis planning or investing in some form of cryptocurrencies by the end of this year, as reported by Financial Services Council.

Moreover, the platform would soon extend its local market to another 48 high-cap coins as well as small-cap coins.

Reason for introducing exchange's NZ version

According to Swyftx’s CEO, Alex Harper, the NZ version was launched as the exchange's first international market because of its regulatory parallelism with Australia.

Benefits to Kiwis

With the launch of the New Zealand-based platform, more crypto trading will be done in the NZD.

Moreover, it would give New Zealanders a level of protection, for the Swyftx exchange is now registered with the FSPR, i.e., financial service providers register.
