The collaboration between DAG, provider of a crypto platform, and GMEX, provider of multi-asset exchange trading and post-trade solutions and technology, will be structured around a number of strategic areas.

Hirander Misra, chairman and CEO of GMEX, who has been appointed to the DAG advisory board as part of the joint venture, adds: “The DAG team has a pedigree of successful ventures in the financial services, fintech and wider technology space. This joint venture aligns its objective with our ethos to connect traditional financial services with emerging digital assets and the wider crypto economy to provide the leading trusted platform by bringing together established regulated banking, fund management and exchange business models with emerging innovation and blockchain technology.”
