Nick Cowan, the CEO of GBX stated:

“This is a significant step in our journey to becoming a leading digital asset exchange and token sale platform. The soft launch of the platform will mean that we can continue as effectively as possible toward providing an institutional-grade token sales springboard for utility tokens and top-quality digital asset exchange for the global blockchain and trading communities.”

With the promise to provide a safe, transparent and efficient platform, the GBX GRID token was also launched successfully. Traceto and Strykz tokens will also be sold by using this platform.
