“Following the recent industry turmoil, this launch also means Hong Kong now has an app that is compliant, safe, and smooth for trading. HashKey boasts in compliance and security, providing features like safe asset custody, independent audits, and insurance coverage to ensure users’ assets are securely protected.


In addition, HashKey has leveraged its licensing advantage to establish fiat on-and-off ramps with multiple banks, including Hong Kong issuing banks. Users can directly deposit Hong Kong Dollars or US Dollars using their bank cards and engage in trading on HKD and USD trading pairs, alleviating concerns within industry related such as freezing of bank accounts. “
