Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange enters new phase
The move is one that is coming at a crucial time for the regulated token sale platform and digital asset exchange, as its digital asset platform is on the verge of listing new tokens.

Nick Cowan said of Looyens’: “His vast experience in finance, business development, and regulatory matters will provide the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange with essential leadership to cement its position as a leading digital asset exchange.”
