KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Toronto-based Fintech company Blockstation to explore the possibilities of offering cryptocurrency trading to investors.

“We are excited to implement this service with our clients, satisfying considerable investor interest in digital assets. We are also proud to be at the forefront of bringing innovation to capital markets,” said Marlene Street Forrest, Managing Director of the JSE in a joint statement with Blockstation.

“We are very comfortable moving forward based on the training and support provided by Blockstation, and because their trading platform incorporates familiar compliance rules to ensure a fair marketplace.”

Through this agreement, JSE may become one of the first international stock exchanges to deploy an online digital currency and token trading platform, including trading, quotes, execution and settlement services, in a format that aligns with current regulatory and compliance standards.

JSE said the market will be notified of ongoing developments as the framework and platform to effect such trading is currently being examined.
