HANGZHOU, China, February 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ebang International Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: EBON, the “Company,” “we” or “our”), a global blockchain technology company, today announced that the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary Ebonex Australia Pty Ltd (“Ebonex Australia”) has received registration approval from Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC) as a digital currency exchange as of December 3, 2021.
Mr. Dong Hu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “Last year, we began our expansion in Australia by setting up subsidiaries and office space and establishing our local professional team. And now we are proud to announce that AUSTRAC has approved Ebonex Australia’s registration as a digital currency exchange (DCE). AUSTRAC, an Australian government financial intelligence agency responsible for detecting, deterring and responding to criminal abuse of the financial system, oversees registration of any business that offers cryptocurrency exchange services. We consider Australia a major financial hub and recognize its significant influence in the global market; therefore, receiving the DCE approval is of great importance to us. Our cryptocurrency exchange project team, which consists of senior industry technical experts, has been developing and testing the cryptocurrency exchange tirelessly, and we anticipate that the exchange will be introduced to the market in the near future. We are confident that the DCE approval will add substantial value to our business growth and believe this latest approval is the most recent milestone in the Company’s transformation into a diversified and vertically integrated blockchain company with comprehensive involvements in the value chain of the blockchain industry. We will continue leveraging our technological strengths to contribute to the development of the cryptocurrency exchange business.”
