The company has also hired former LCG Chief Marketing Officer Amedeo Moscato as the Head of DX.Exchange’s Retail Division.

The investment from NFX is meant to help DX.Exchange build the world’s leading regulated crypto exchange. DX.Exchange apparently attracted NFX’s attention due to its free trading business model and ultra-modern trading platform.

Other NFX investments include ride sharing company Lyft, web intelligence company SimilarWeb, and casual games company Playtika, which was acquired for $4.4 billion.

DX.Exchange has already registered over 500,000 users and has started opening accounts with full KYC as of July 2. DX.Exchange allows institutions and individuals to purchase Cryptocurrencies with Fiat, trade Cryptocurrencies, and convert Crypto back to Fiat. All this can be done with no trading fees and a 10 Euro monthly membership for the Lite account.
