Following its licensing as an electronic asset service supplier under the Digital Assets Issuance Law of El Salvador, which was granted in April 2023, Bitfinex Securities, the encoded securities trading platform of Bitfinex Exchange, is expected to make its El Salvadorian debut in the next months. Bitfinex Securities is formally establishing its platform, after the government of El Salvador’s completion of the infrastructure and important rules about the electronic asset regime last year.
In a statement released on January 31, Bitfinex Securities stated that with the first spot Bitcoin BTC tickers down $42,041 exchange-traded funds (ETF) officially beginning trading in the United States, the company anticipates a large demand for authorized digital investing services.
Bitfinex Securities Believes That Interest Has Increased Post The Introduction Of ETF
Head of operations at the company Jesse Knutson told Cointelegraph, “We believe that corporate enthusiasm for Bitcoin and products based on Bitcoin has increased, especially since the U.S. spot ETFs were introduced.” According to the executive, the platform anticipates a rise in demand for tokenized securities and physical assets. They intend to offer a pipeline of products with this new launch, including stock and bond-like issuances, which we anticipate announcing in the coming months. “It’s good to have a variety of both foreign and domestic issuers in our pipeline,” Knutson remarked. According to Knutson, Bitfinex Securities launched in El Salvador intending to assist the exchange in growing its footprint in Central and South America. Apart from authorized regions, he said, the site has been accessible to individual and institutional investors globally. Knutson claims that since September 2021, when El Salvador accepted Bitcoin as official money, the country has made great strides. The executive stated: “Since Q4 2021, El Salvador’s financial performance has also exceeded regional peers and expectations, which has been partially supported by Bitcoin-driven investment and tourism into El Salvador.”
