Drawing support from top market influencers
The recently launched crypto exchange is not only supported by Black.one. It also has the strong backing of some of the world’s top business leaders in both the crypto space and the financial world. The list includes Galaxy Digital, Hong Kong billionaire Richard Li, U.S. hedge fund manager Louis Bacon, fund manager Alan Howard, as well as billionaire entrepreneur Peter Thiel. The exchange announced,
Bullish will use @EOSIO to securely execute and immutably record all financial movements on the platform.
The company wants more customer involvement
Many have viewed it as the first exchange to provide the best form of both centralized and decentralized space. The former provides comprehensive development, efficiency, and provides compliance. On the other hand, its decentralization offers new innovative products like DeFi.
Brendan Blumer, Chief Executive Officer of Block.one, commented on the development. He stated that Bullish’s plan to go public will enable the customers to become active participants and partakers in the company’s goals and aspirations. It will enable the customers to hold a piece of the company without the jurisdictional limitations or regulatory uncertainties of a profit-sharing token issuance.
