The First Full Digital Asset Ecosystem Listed on Nasdaq
Offering Innovative Products and Services that are Compliant, Fair, and Trusted
July 7, 2021
EQONEX Group is a digital asset financial services and advisory company focused on delivering innovative products, architecture, and infrastructure to foster the mainstream adoption of the digital asset class. The group was listed on Nasdaq in September 2020 under the ticker “EQOS”.
Diginex Limited (Nasdaq: EQOS) & EQUOS rebrand as EQONEX
The EQONEX brand will carry on the company’s legacy as a leading digital asset ecosystem.
Diginex Limited (Nasdaq: EQOS), the digital asset financial services company, is pleased to announce that it is unifying its businesses under the brand, EQONEX.
The rebrand brings together under the EQONEX Group brand, its cryptocurrency exchange, custody platform, multi-venue trading business, over-the-counter (OTC) offering, its asset management solution, securitization business and the upcoming investment products and borrowing and lending businesses.
EQUOS, the cryptocurrency exchange will be known as EQONEX and Diginex Capital, the digital asset securitization business will be rebranded to EQONEX Capital. The upcoming investment products business will be called EQONEX Investment Products and the anticipated borrowing and lending platform will become EQONEX Lending.
Diginex Access, the multi-venue trading platform, will rebrand to Access Trading. Digivault, the UK Financial Conduct Authority-registered crypto-asset custodian, will continue to operate under its current name. Bletchley Park, the crypto fund of funds, will also operate under its current name.
The company’s corporate name will remain Diginex Limited and the company will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange as Diginex Limited (Nasdaq: EQOS), pending a resolution to rename the corporate entity at the company’s AGM later this year. The rebrand follows the divestment of Diginex Solutions, the ESG blockchain solutions company, in May 2020 and the impending lapse of the license to use the “Diginex” brand at the end of the month.
Since its launch, growth on the EQONEX exchange, has been tremendous, with exchange volumes growing by over 50 times since the company became public in October 2020. Last week, the EQONEX exchange achieved its strongest 24-hour volume day in excess of $260 million and is currently reporting over $4.5 billion in 30-day volume.
This momentum has been driven by the April launch of the exchange token EQO, which offers fee reduction and staking rewards for traders on the platform and will soon offer even more utilities, such as being available for use as collateral for derivative positions and providing enhanced yield on balances that are lent via the platform. At a $29-million fully-diluted market capitalization, compared to $11.5 billion to $63 billion market capitalization for other exchange tokens, new investors and traders have started to trade and earn EQO on the exchange. The company launched the token without a token sale, instead the token is provided to users of the platform like air miles.
The new EQONEX brand focuses on the crypto element of the business, reflected in the EQUOS and EQO brands, whilst recognizing its history as Diginex. The value proposition to customers remains the same – offering fairness, governance, and innovation to all of its stakeholders.
The brand also reinforces the company’s mission to drive harmony and equilibrium between traditional finance and cryptocurrencies, bringing digital assets to the world.
“As we progress in our focus of delivering digital assets to a broad cross section of clients, it is important for us to unify the key pieces under a single brand. The new brand EQONEX signifies all the strongest elements of our existing brands. We provide a regulated, compliant and secure ecosystem with equality for all clients, both institutional and retail,” said Richard Byworth, CEO at EQONEX.

Strategy Day: Roundtable, The Growing Appeal of Digital Assets and the Triggers to Greater Adoption
A panel of experts gathered to discuss the future trajectory of digital assets, led by David Nage, Principal of Arca, and joined by our Head of Strategy, Maya Vujinovic, Owen Lau, Executive Director of Research at Oppenheimer & Co, Alon Goren, Founding Partner of Draper Goren Holm, and Juan David Mendieta Villegas, co-Founder of Keyrock.
What is Cryptocurrency?
Cryptocurrency can seem a bit ambiguous for those who aren’t as technologically informed. A good comparison is that of casino chips. It represents money in that specific environment, but you’ll first have to exchange real currency for the cryptocurrency to acquire the good or service.
Part of the appeal of cryptocurrency is its use of blockchain technology. Blockchain, or Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), uses decentralization and cryptographic hashing to make the history of any digital asset unalterable. This makes cryptocurrency trustworthy because there’s a log of all it’s transactions and lower risk in the case of systemic failure.
Let’s look at the most popular example: Bitcoin.
Bitcoin (BTC), launched in 2009 by developer Satoshi Nakamoto, became the world’s first and largest cryptocurrency. This digital currency functions on a peer-to-peer controlled network using advanced blockchain technology. Which means trading bitcoin should reduce risk, eliminate fraud and promote transparency in all dealings.
Anyone can invest in Bitcoin. The first step is to create an account with a licensed and trusted cryptocurrency exchange, such as EQONEX. Once you have set up your account, verified your identity, and added some funds, you can begin buying and trading BTC. You can exchange several different currencies across EQONEX, including it’s very own EQO coin.
So why is cryptocurrency important?
Many believe cryptocurrency to be the currency of the future. Supporters of crypto site cryptocurrencies decentralization and technological recording as key benefits. When central banks are removed from managing the money supply, it’s less likely the value of money will decrease due to inflation. Additionally, blockchain technology allows the network to see the exact history of the digital asset, providing more security and transparency.
According to CoinMarketCap, the total value of all cryptocurrencies was greater than $1.6 trillion on February 18th, 2021. The cryptocurrency market is predicted to continue growing with a CAGR of 56.4% from 2019 to 2025, meaning now is a great time to invest in and get on a good crypto exchange.
EQONEX group is committed to delivering on crypto derivatives and digital securities, by offering products and infrastructure to meet the massive opportunity in derivatives, and by disrupting traditional financial markets through digital asset securitization.
Today, crypto derivatives volumes are approximately 3x spot, where traditional markets like FX see derivatives volumes dwarfing spot at over 100x. But at 100x spot, the crypto derivative opportunity would exceed US $400bn in daily trading volume.
Enter the EQONEX Cryptocurrency Exchange.
EQONEX is a regulatory-focused, institutional-quality exchange, built to meet the derivative opportunity. It has addressed the reputational risk factors prevalent in the crypto industry, implementing robust KYC/AML processes, crypto-asset provenance checks, enhanced security, and institutional architecture designed to bank-grade standards.

Who are we and what do we do?
We are paid advertisers, also known as stock touts or stock promoters, who disseminate favorable information (the “Information”) about publicly traded companies (the “Profiled Issuers”).
How is the Information published?
We publish the Information on our Website, in newsletters, audio services, live interviews, featured “research” reports, on message boards and in email communications for specific time periods that are agreed upon between us and the Profiled Issuer or third party paying us.
Our publication of the Information is known as a “Campaign”.
Will everyone receive the Information at the same time?
No. The Information may be sent to potential investors at different times that are minutes, hours, days or even weeks apart.
How is a potential investor impacted if he receives the Information later than other investors?
Typically, the trading volume and price of a Profiled Issuer’s securities increases after the Information is provided to the first group of investors. Therefore, the later an investor receives the Information, the more likely it is that he will suffer increased trading losses if he purchases the securities of a Profiled Issuer.
What will happen to the shares that we hold during the Campaign?
We will sell the shares we hold while we tell investors to purchase during the Campaign.
What will happen when the Campaign ends?
Most, if not all, of the Profiled Issuers are penny stocks that are illiquid and whose securities are subject to wide fluctuations in trading price and volume. During the Campaign the trading volume and price of the securities of each Profiled Issuer will likely increase significantly. When the Campaign ends, the volume and price of the Profiled Issuer will likely decrease dramatically. As a result, investors who purchase during the Campaign and hold shares of the Profiled Issuer when the Campaign ends will probably lose most, if not all, of their investment.
Why do we publish only favorable Information?
We only publish favorable information because we are compensated to publish only favorable information.
Why don’t we publish negative Information?
We don’t publish negative information because we are not paid to publish negative information. We are paid to publish only favorable information.
Is the Information complete, accurate, truthful or reliable?
No. The Information is a snapshot that provides only positive information about the Profiled Issuers. The Information consists of only positive content. We do not and will not publish any negative information about the Profiled Issuers; accordingly, investors should consider the Information to be one-sided and not balanced, complete, accurate, truthful or reliable.
What we do not do?

The Information is provided to us by the Profiled Issuers and/or the person who hires us. We may also obtain the Information from publicly available sources such as the OTC Markets, Google, NASDAQ, NYSE, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Edgar database or other available public sources.
If we say we make “stock picks,” are those picks our own?
No, they are not. We are compensated to advertise the securities we are told to advertise.
What will happen if an investor relies on the Information?
If an investor relies on the Information in making an investment decision it is highly probable that the investor will lose most, if not all, of his or her investment. Investors should not rely on the Information to make an investment decision.
Who pays us to publish the Information?
The source of our compensation varies depending upon the particular circumstances of the Campaign. We are compensated by the Profiled Issuers, third party shareholders and other parties related to the Profiled Issuers such as officers and/or directors who will derive a financial or other benefit from an increase in the trading price and/or volume of a Profiled Issuer’s securities.

What do we urge potential investors to do?
We urge Investors to conduct their own in-depth investigation of the Profiled Issuers with the assistance of their legal, tax and investment advisers. An investor’s review of the Information should include but not be limited to the Profiled Issuer’s financial condition, operations, management, products or services, trends in the industry and risks that may be material to the profiled Issuer’s business and other information he and his advisers deem material to an investment decision. An investor’s review should include, but not be limited to a review of available public sources and information received directly from the Profiled Issuers or from websites such as Google, OTC Markets, NASDAQ, NYSE, www.sec.gov or other available public sources.
Why is this Disclaimer being provided?
We are providing you with this disclaimer because we are publishing advertisements about penny stocks. Because we are paid to disseminate the Information to the public about securities, we are required by the securities laws including Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and Section 17(b) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to specifically disclose our compensation as well as other important information, This information includes that we may hold, as well as purchase and sell, the securities of a Profiled Issuer before, during and after we publish favorable Information about the Profiled Issuer. We may urge investors to purchase the securities of a Profiled Issuer while we sell our own shares.
The anti-fraud provisions of federal and state securities laws require us to inform you that we may engage in buying and selling of Profiled Issuer’s securities before, during and after the Campaigns.What are other risks that investors should be aware of?
Any investment in the Profiled Issuers involves a high degree of risk and uncertainty. The securities may be subject to extreme volume and price volatility, especially during the Campaigns. Favorable past performance of a Profiled Issuer does not guarantee future results. If you purchase the securities of the Profiled Issuers, you should be prepared to lose your entire investment. Some of the risks involved in purchasing securities of the Profiled Issuers include, but are not limited to the risks stated below.
We do not endorse, independently verify or assert the truthfulness, completeness, accuracy or reliability of the Information. We conduct no due diligence or investigation whatsoever of the Information or the Profiled Issuers and we do not receive any verification from the Profiled Issuer regarding the Information we disseminate.
If we publish any percentage gain of a Profiled Issuer from the previous day close in the Information, it is not and should not be construed as an indication that the future stock price or future operational results will reflect gains or otherwise prove to be advantageous to your investment.
The Information may contain statements asserting that a Profiled Issuer’s stock price has increased over a certain period of time which may reflect an arbitrary period of time, and is not predictive or of any analytical quality; as such, you should not rely upon the (favorable) Information in your analysis of the present or future potential of a Profiled Issuer or its securities.
The Information should not be interpreted in any way, shape, form or manner whatsoever as an indication of the Profiled Issuer’s future stock price or future financial performance.
You may encounter difficulties determining what, if any, portions of the Information are material or non-material, making it all the more imperative that you conduct your own independent investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities with the assistance of your legal, tax and financial advisor.
We or other stock promoters may receive free trading shares as compensation or we may acquire such shares in open market transactions before and during the Campaigns, and we may sell the shares we acquire at any time, even during the Campaigns while publishing the Favorable Information. When we sell the shares of the Profiled Issuers that we hold, the price at which investors can sell their shares will dramatically decrease and will likely cause investors to suffer trading losses.
We may sell securities of the Profiled Issuers for less than target prices set forth in the Information, and we may profit by selling our securities during the Campaigns while investors encounter losses.
When we acquire, purchase or sell the securities of the Profiled Issuers, it may (a) cause significant volatility in the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (b) cause temporary but unrealistic increases in volume and price of the Profiled Issuer’s securities; (c) if selling, cause the Profiled Issuer’s stock price to decline dramatically; and (d) permit us to make substantial profits while investors who purchase during the Campaign experience significant losses.
The securities of the Profiled Issuers are high risk, unstable, unpredictable and illiquid which may make it difficult for investors to sell their securities of the Profiled Issuers.
If we are compensated in improperly free trading securities of the Profiled Issuers, either directly or indirectly from persons who claim to be non-affiliates of such Profiled Issuer, we and the Profiled Issuer or third party could be subject to SEC Enforcement Action, including allegations of an illegal distribution in violation of Section 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act.
We may hire third party service providers and stock promoters to electronically disseminate live news regarding the Profiled Issuers, yet we have no control over the content of and do not verify the information that the Profiled Issuers and/or third party service providers publish. These third party service providers are likely compensated for providing positive information about the Issuer and fail to disclose their compensation to you.
If a Profiled Issuer is an SEC reporting company, it could be delinquent (not current) in its periodic reporting obligations (i.e., in its quarterly and annual reports), or if it is an OTC Markets Pink Sheet quoted company, it may be delinquent in its Pink Sheet reporting obligations, which may result in OTC Markets posting a negative legend pertaining to the Profiled Issuer at www.otcmarkets.com, as follows: (i) “Limited Information” for companies with financial reporting problems, economic distress, or that are unwilling to file required reports with the Pink Sheets; (ii) “No Information,” which characterizes companies that are unable or unwilling to provide any disclosure to the public markets, to the SEC or the Pink Sheets; and (iii) “Caveat Emptor,” signifying buyers should be aware that there is a public interest concern associated with a company’s illegal spam campaign, questionable stock promotion, known investigation of a company’s fraudulent activity or its insiders, regulatory suspensions or disruptive corporate actions.
If the Information states that a Profiled Issuer’s securities are consistent with the future economic trends or even if your independent research indicates that, you should be aware that economic trends have their own limitations, including: (a) that economic trends or predictions may be speculative; (b) consumers, producers, investors, borrowers, lenders and government may react in unforeseen ways and be affected by behavioral biases that we are unable to predict; (c) human and social factors may outweigh future economic trends that we state may or will occur; (d) clear cut economic predictions have their limitations in that they do not account for the fundamental uncertainty in economic life, as well as ordinary life; (e) economic trends may be disrupted by sudden jumps, disruptions or other factors that are not accounted for in economic trends analysis; in other words, past or present data predicting future economic trends may become irrelevant in light of new circumstances and situations in which uncertainty becomes reality rather than predicted economic outcome; or (f) if the trend predicted involves a single result, it ignores other scenarios that may be crucial to make a decision in the event of unknown contingencies.
The Information is presented only as a brief snapshot of the Profiled Issuer and should only be used, at most, and if at all, as a starting point for you to conduct a thorough investigation of the Profiled Issuer and its securities. You should consult your financial, legal or other adviser(s) and avail yourself of the filings and information that may be accessed at www.sec.govwww.sec.gov, www.otcmarkets.com or other electronic media, including: (a) reviewing SEC periodic reports (Forms 10-Q and 10-K), reports of material events (Form 8-K), insider reports (Forms 3, 4, 5 and Schedule 13D); (b) reviewing Information and Disclosure Statements and unaudited financial reports filed with the OTCMarkets.com; (c) obtaining and reviewing publicly available information contained in commonly known search engines such as Google; and (d) consulting investment guides at www.sec.gov and www.finra.org. You should always be cognizant that the Profiled Issuers may not be current in their reporting obligations with the SEC and the OTC Markets and/or have negative legends and designations at otcmarkets.com.
