“A core part of any mature exchange”
BlockEx provides blockchain services to financial institutions. Its services are three: a cryptocurrency exchange building service, an ICO marketplace connecting projects and investors, and a digital bond service which uses blockchain technology to manage investor-to-company loans.

According to the BlockEx website, each DAXT token costs one euro, and there are 130 million of them available.
