CEZEX is Asia's first licensed digital assets exchange platform for asset-backed securities tokens, allowing for the digitalization/tokenization and trading of any traditional asset classes. CEZEX is bridging the gap between traditional financial markets and cryptocurrency markets by providing market participants access to tokenized assets through the operation of a regulated market.
CEZEX is currently conducting an exclusive financing round to raise capital of up to USD $20M. The capital will be deployed for operating the exchange platform, further development of IT systems and technology infrastructure, investments in marketing and sales, setup of back office systems and the establishment of an accelerator fund for digitalization of assets. Initial seed funding has been received from Pinnacle Digital, Inbase Partners, Katalyse, IP Ventures (IPE Global), KaikakuFund, PPDE and Global Oriental Berhad.
The initiative for CEZEX is led by a consortium in partnership with the Philippine government. The CEZEX team has been successful in building and operating fintech, capital markets and trading platforms such as Coinhako(crypto wallet & digital currency exchange platform), Katalyse(previously known as Fundyourselfnow, Asia’s leading crypto crowdfunding platform), Inbase Partners (digital assets investment bank), PPDE (leading derivatives operator in Cambodia).
The development of CEZEX is backed by the Cagayan Special Economic Zone ('CEZA'), the Philippine government-owned and controlled corporation tasked to manage and supervise the development of the CEZA and Freeport.
