  • Regulated digital currency exchange provider Zipmex has recently expanded its footprint across the Asia-Pacific region, launching in Indonesia, with discussions underway for a Thailand-centric exchange. 
  • Advisory board members include former Stock Exchange Thailand chairman Dr. Sathit Limpongpan and Professor Dr. Chaiya Yimwilai, Vice Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand. 
  • Zipmex has partnered with Indonesian fintech leader ALTO, an interbank network, which holds several payment licenses and has a money transfer business. 

MEDIA RELEASE, October 15th, 2019: Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange Zipmex has announced that more than IDR$67 billion has been traded on its Indonesia-centric platform since it formally launched in the market earlier last month. 

Zipmex is now accepting Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) from customers and is aiming to offer the best prices for cryptocurrencies, namely BTC, ETH, EOS, XRP, XRP, and LTC. 

Zipmex CEO and co-founder Marcus Lim said the move by the country’s regulator to classify Bitcoin as a trading commodity had prompted a rapid expansion of the crypto market in Indonesia.  

“Indonesia is ripe for cryptocurrency adoption and Zipmex will bring a safe, fast and secure digital asset exchange to the market, offering seamless Rupiah (IDR) onboarding and competitive BTC prices,” said Mr. Lim. 

Aiming to legitimize its offering in the local market, Zipmex has partnered with Indonesian fintech leader ALTO, an interbank network, which holds several payment licenses and has a money transfer business. 

“Zipmex seeks to form partnerships with industry bodies and finance leaders in all of our markets, as part of our aim to be the Asia-Pacific region’s most trusted digital assets exchange provider,” said Mr. Lim. 

“We are beginning to see crypto assets transition from the fringe to mainstream financial investments. Zipmex is aiming to capitalize on this momentum by becoming Asia’s fastest-growing cryptocurrency exchange.”

Zipmex aggregates volume from some of the world’s largest exchanges and OTC desks, aiming to provide significantly higher liquidity and competitive prices for users. The launch in Indonesia follows Zipmex’s recent expansion into the Australian market. 

To commemorate the commencement of operations in the country, Zipmex is in talks with local Indonesian projects regarding local opportunities. 

Zipmex also plans to be the first Asia-Pacific cryptocurrency exchange to launch and support the world’s first fully audited, vaulted, and insured gold-backed token, xbullion. 

Receiving support from some of Asia’s most prominent finance leaders, Zipmex’s advisory board members include Dr. Sathit Limpongpan, former chairman of Stock Exchange Thailand, and Professor Dr. Chaiya Yimwilai, Vice Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand. 

“Zipmex not only brings a wealth of financial knowledge and expertise to the cryptocurrency market but a proven track record of funds management on both our core team and our advisory board,” said Mr. Lim. 

Mr. Lim said Zipmex had developed a multi-approval security process on its platform to adhere to the highest security standards. 

“Zipmex will also offer 100 percent insurance on digital assets,” said Mr. Lim. 

Zipmex is a regulated digital currency exchange provider that is seeking to become a market leader in the Asia-Pacific region by offering fast trades, high liquidity, and a broad choice of cryptocurrencies.
