CEX.IO Named ‘Best Cryptocurrency Platform in Europe’ By Digital Assets Awards

The company’s eligibility and credentials were vetted by The Digital Banker’s judging panel, and fulfilled all necessary requirements for success in this category.

CHICAGO, Oct. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CEX.IO, a global ecosystem of products and services that connects curious participants to the cryptocurrency economy and decentralized finance (DeFi), was named “Best Cryptocurrency Platform in Europe” by the 2023 Digital Assets Awards. Hosted by The Digital Banker, a global news and business intelligence outlet, the program recognizes companies offering best-in-class services for retail and enterprise clients across financial sectors.

As an early innovator in the crypto space, CEX.IO achieved its status as a tenured leader by building intuitive, user-centric products aimed at promoting pathways to financial empowerment. Since 2013, the company has helped drive efforts to bridge traditional finance (TradFi) with emerging opportunities in the crypto ecosystem. This award arrives as CEX.IO is poised to celebrate a decade of providing exemplary, trusted access to the digital economy.

“It’s a true honor to receive this award among an increasingly crowded field of forward-thinking solutions,” said Oleksandr Lutskevych, Founder and CEO of CEX.IO. “In accepting this recognition, we endeavor to let its inspiration fuel the ongoing refinement of our product ecosystem. While we appreciate the accolade, to achieve global crypto adoption, we can’t risk resting on our laurels.”

Recently, the company expanded its presence in Europe by acquiring new licenses for Lithuania, and hired a dedicated MLRO for the region. This move aligns with CEX.IO’s rigorous AML/CTF approach, and signals a readiness to work with regulators to implement new guardrails following Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) legislation taking effect for EU-member countries. 

“As a globally registered and regulated exchange, CEX.IO has advanced global financial inclusion through the adoption of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology,” said Nirav Patel, Managing Director & Editor of The Digital Banker. “CEX.IO has been awarded these honors after stringent adjudication by The Digital Banker’s judging panel, under which the organization has successfully fulfilled the criteria for this category.”

The Digital Assets Awards gala was held virtually on October 5th, 2023, where CEX.IO’s Head of Communications, Becky Sarwate, spoke on behalf of the company.
