Matrixport Files Virtual Asset Trading License Application with Hong Kong SFC

Matrixport applied for a virtual asset trading license with Hong Kong’s securities regulator on Feb. 26. A roster published on the Securities and Futures Commission website showed that the platform’s Hong Kong-based branch is called Flying Hippo Technologies. Matrixport’s filing comes as the deadline nears for Hong Kong-based VA trading platforms to file applications for a license. Failure to submit by Feb. 29 will result in mandatory cessation of operations by the end of May. Last year, Hong Kong’s SFC introduced stricter regulations for digital asset firms. This included a licensing system for cryptocurrencies, which came into effect in June.
