Jamaica Stock Exchange to trial Bitcoin trading

posted 21 days ago
The Jamaica Stock Exchange plans to trial Bitcoin trading with help from Canadian fintech firm Blockstation. The two firms entered into an agreement to enable live trading of digital assets including security tokens in a “regulated and secured” environment.

The trial will see broker-dealers sign up, and onboard retail investors through a KYC process in order to help them trade Bitcoin. Marlene Street Forrest, the JSE’s managing director said “This is an unprecedented opportunity for the JSE to diversify its product offerings and attract new listings and inbound investments.”
