The approval from FINMA underscores the robust organization, technology, and processes employed by Taurus, ensuring a secure and compliant environment for all transactions.
Retail clients, along with professional and institutional investors, can now engage in trading digital assets and tokenized securities on TDX using various fiat currencies, including Swiss franc (CHF), Euro (EUR), and US dollar (USD). This expansion brings multiple benefits to both issuers and investors, fostering enhanced liquidity and efficient capital raising for companies.
