Today's guests are Alan Silbert, North America CEO of INX, and Itai Avneri, COO of INX. INX aims to offer a fully-licensed and regulated cryptocurrency, security token, and derivatives trading platform. They also endeavor to be a leader in the regulated security token platform space. INX announced in January 2018 its submission of a confidentially-filed draft registration statement to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for an initial public offering of the INX Token. INX is one of the leading platforms from a regulatory and compliance perspective; they are a broker-dealer, have various alternative trading system licenses, and a cash fund to safeguard platform capital. Alan Silbert, CEO North America of INX. He joined the Company in March 2018 as Executive Managing Director. Since joining INX, Alan has been responsible for facilitating the build-out of the director and advisor team, raising capital, growing operations and infrastructure for North American operations, and leading the regulatory processes for broker-dealers and money transmitter licenses. Alan's career in finance spans almost 25 years, where he has held executive positions in various large banks.

He designed and built advanced information systems specializing in trading, BI & CRM solutions, marketing, KYC automation, and payments and integration hubs. We discuss various topics, including INX, Security Tokens, Regulation, and much more.
