HashKey Exchange launches new FX service

“As a trusted and secure compliant exchange, the introduction of the US dollar to Hong Kong dollar service is a step forward in our continuous efforts to enhance the platform.”

HashKey Exchange, a Hong Kong-licensed virtual asset exchange, has launched a new foreign exchange service, aimed at offering users a more convenient and efficient trading experience.

The FX service currently enables two-way currency exchange between the Hong Kong dollar and the US dollar, but the platform has plans to expand the offering by adding more fiat currency exchange options.

FX service currently offers USD/HKD

With this new feature, users can now directly exchange US dollars for Hong Kong dollars on the HashKey Exchange platform. This eliminates the need for additional steps in currency conversion and transfer processes for deposit transactions.

Hong Kong is recognized as one of the world’s major over-the-counter (OTC) cryptocurrency centers. HashKey Exchange, in addition to facilitating cryptocurrency-to-fiat exchanges, now offers a stable and convenient one-stop currency exchange channel.

The FX service provides a broader platform for global users to engage in cryptocurrency transactions in a regulatory-compliant manner. HashKey Exchange is also looking to strengthen its collaborations with banks, aiming to offer customers more options in deposit currencies and trading pairs.

Livio Weng, COO of HashKey Group and CEO of HashKey Exchange, said, “As a trusted and secure compliant exchange, the introduction of the US dollar to Hong Kong dollar service is a step forward in our continuous efforts to enhance the platform. Our goal is to make global transactions with digital assets more accessible for our users through this service. We are committed to introducing more innovative services in the future to meet our users’ evolving needs.”
