London Block Exchange

The London Block Exchange is the UK's first dedicated cryptocurrency exchange built to help consumers and institutions join the digital money revolution.

The London Block Exchange (LBX) is the first multi-cryptocurrency exchange dedicated to the UK market. Based in Canary Wharf, LBX provides a credible, safe and accessible exchange for consumers and institutional investors alike through its app and online platform. LBX’s full trading experience is expected to be live at the beginning of April 2018.

The platform is underpinned by educational content – delivered through the ‘College of Crypto’ and daily market reports - alongside bank-grade security and strong governance. Four cryptocurrencies will be available for trade upon launch, with more to be added periodically. LBX also offers an over-the-counter (OTC) service which grants institutions and professional traders a seamless way to place trades worth over £25,000.

LBX is currently in the process of applying for its FCA Electronic Money Institution license. For more information visit https://lbx.com.
