One of Exodus’ top-level executives revealed that Exodus was previously listed on the tZero platform last September. Thus, Securitize is the second trade platform to list Exodus’ shares.
Commenting on this news, Exodus’ Chief Executive, JP Richardson, stated that “through our listing on the Securitize platform, we have onboarded nearly 7,000 retail investors and venture capitalists and raised nearly $80m. Also, this listing allows anyone to invest in Exodus or trade its shares through Securitize. We are thrilled about what the future holds with our company on this platform.”
Last May, Exodus ran an SEC-approved mini IPO sale offering where it generated nearly $80m. More importantly, Exodus won’t have any issue with the SEC as Securitize platform has a registered license with the SEC dating back to three years. Some of the famous institutional investors for the Securitize platform include blockchain capital, Coinbase, and Morgan Stanley investment corporation.
Increased Exposure And Earnings
Carlos Domingo, the head of operations at Securitize, said, “Exodus should get ready to be exposed to a large market for their products, shares, and liquidity potential. That is what happens when the shares of any firm become publicly listed on our platform.”
When it was launched seven years ago, Exodus started by offering crypto exchange services and selling software for crypto-wallets. The company’s updated annual performance report was released this past week and showed that Exodus’ revenue for the past fiscal year rose by about 340% year-on-year, with reported earnings up to $95m. The current TradingView data shows that EXOD trades at $15.8 as of March 15.
