AAX was founded in early 2018 and after over 18 months of research and development, the exchange was officially launched in November 2019.
From the outset, the goal was to create a digital asset exchange that would be attractive to the vibrant community of retail traders, while still being able to withstand regulatory scrutiny and suit institutional financial market participants.
To create a world-class exchange suitable for both retail and institutional investors, we have brought together professionals from the world of cryptocurrencies, creatives, as well as from corporate structures such as HSBC, IBM and JPMorgan.
AAX has offices throughout the Asia-Pacific region and a team of 200 is led by CEO Thor Chan. Drawing on his experience as Deputy CEO of FDT Group, product management experience at App Annie and Microsoft, and experience in building low latency trading systems, Chan successfully established AAX as the leading institutional-grade exchange in the region in less than a year.
A strong team, robust technology, and a strong commitment to safety, market integrity, and performance: we believe that as the industry continues to evolve and regulation truly begins to take root, these elements will be key to success, long-term sustainability, and mainstream adoption.
Looking to the future and deeply convinced that cryptoassets will play an increasingly important role in the world, AAX was built with durability in mind.
The future belongs to cryptocurrencies. The future is AAX.
We are trusted by over 3 million crypto investors
