HashKey Exchange Enters into Strategic Partnership with Eddid Financial to Enhance Virtual Asset Deposit and Withdrawal Services for Clients

Hong Kong, June 28, 2024 — HashKey Exchange, the largest licensed virtual asset exchange in Hong Kong*, announces a strategic alliance with Eddid Financial. As a part of the collaboration, HashKey Exchange plans to provide Eddid Financial's subsidiary, Eddid Securities and Futures Limited (“ESFL”), with the Omnibus VA deposit and withdrawal service, providing clients^ with convenient, safe, and efficient virtual asset deposit and withdrawal services.

ESFL's clients can now trade virtual assets or cryptocurrencies approved by the Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC”), including Bitcoin and Ether, directly on the HashKey Exchange platform through Omnibus. This one-stop service will allow clients to benefit from traditional financial services while also easily entering the virtual asset market. Looking ahead, both parties will delve deeper into the field of virtual assets and work together to build a compliant, efficient, and robust virtual asset market future.

ESFL recently uplifted its license with the SFC, becoming one of the first brokers in Hong Kong to offer both traditional financial and virtual asset trading services. Members of Eddid Financial hold type 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 9 regulated activity licenses issued by the SFC and have been dedicated to providing comprehensive financial services to institutions and individuals, while also actively exploring the virtual asset market.

Dr. Ricky Yeung, Head of the Virtual Assets Department at Eddid Financial, said, "We are delighted to collaborate with HashKey Exchange. Our group has always been committed to expanding our virtual asset business. This partnership combines Eddid Financial's wealth of experience and in-depth understanding of the investor community with HashKey Exchange's expertise and leading advantages in the virtual asset market. Together, we will promote the popularization of virtual asset trading within the regulatory framework, further solidifying Hong Kong's position as an international financial center and a hub for virtual asset trading."

HashKey Exchange CEO Livio Weng stated, "HashKey Exchange has always been dedicated to becoming a leader in the field of virtual asset trading. The cooperation with Eddid Financial not only brings new growth opportunities for our business but also a strong partner from traditional finance. We believe that through our joint efforts, we can provide investors with a safer and more transparent trading environment. We look forward to bringing more innovation and value to the virtual asset market in Hong Kong through this collaboration."

*Note: As of June 27, 2024, HashKey Exchange has achieved a total trading volume of 450 billion Hong Kong dollars since its inception, ranking in the top 10 on CoinGecko, making it the highest-ranked licensed virtual asset exchange in Hong Kong.
