On today's tech podcast, Aries Wang, Co-Founder of Bibox sits down with me to talk about the digital asset exchange based on AI technology.
The top ten cryptocurrency exchange platform, Bibox, has officially launched in Europe with fiat-to-crypto currency trading of the Euro (EUR) with Bitcoin and Ethereum now open. But I wanted to dig a little bit deeper and learn more about the story behind the launch.
Looming economic uncertainty means that European citizens are increasingly looking for alternative investment opportunities and BiboxEurope appears to be meeting this challenge by offering access to new economic possibilities for retail and institutional investors looking to build their own digital asset portfolio.
Aries discusses why Europe's concise regulatory and legal framework for cryptocurrencies makes it a hotbed of development. We also discuss how the future of cryptocurrency trading and A.I will become inextricably linked as well as his experience as a partner for Blockwater Capital, a leading digital asset fund.
