Aurus, the decentralized precious metals tokenization platform launches its new headquarters in Dubai’s DMCC Crypto Center, introduces its new board of Directors, and acquires a cryptocurrency trading license, which focuses on proprietary trading in crypto-commodities. Aurus’ open-ended blockchain ecosystem enables the tokenization of gold, silver, and platinum in a decentralized and sustainable manner.
Aurus Markets DMCC, as the headquarters of Aurus in the MENA (Middle-East & North Africa) and SEA (South East Asia) regions, will focus on the onboarding of local and regional partners (crypto-exchanges, bullion refineries and brokers), as well as the expansion of Aurus precious metal-backed tokens to the global retail market.
The Aurus team welcomes Aurus Markets DMCC Director Jeremy Hussey and three Non-Executive Advisors: Kashan Rafique, Dale Vine, and Eric Fore.
“It is a privilege to be a member of the DMCC, the world’s leading free zone, and a key global commodities hub. Dubai is at the forefront of fintech innovation in blockchain technologies and we are grateful for the support provided by the Dubai Government and the DMCC to this sector. We look forward to connecting participants of the traditional precious metal markets and new users with innovative and leading technologies.” – Jeremy Hussey, Director of Aurus Markets DMCC.
“The swiftness of the regulatory acceptance and adoption of digital assets aligns with the vision of Aurus while scaling. Aligned with current moves in the precious metals and crypto markets, the opening of a new regional headquarters in Dubai was the logical next step.” – Guido van Stijn, CEO at Aurus.
“We saw immediately that Aurus’ Founders understand the challenges and limitations of the traditional, physical metals markets and the opportunity to fundamentally change the industry by applying blockchain technology to it. Digitizing precious metals and being able to generate a yield from that process creates so many efficiencies and passive investment income that do not exist today. We are incredibly pleased to advise and represent this company, and we look forward to the exciting times ahead of us.” – Eric Fiore (on behalf of Advisors), Non-Executive Advisors at Aurus Markets DMCC.
