Norwegian Block Exchange (NBX) started as a spin-off from Norwegian Air Shuttle to introduce cryptocurrency payments to the air industry with the incentive to reduce cost related to payments, and the potential to be a leading exchange. NBX today is a pioneering, truly Norwegian cryptocurrency exchange, custodian and a payment system that sets the standard for user experience, transparency and security. NBX was founded by the NAS founder, Bjørn Kjos, who also founded Bank Norwegian.
NBX sees the potential to becoming a hub for financial services in the cryptocurrency economy. Aiming so, NBX evolves in a reliable marketplace for buying, selling and making payments in cryptocurrencies or other digital assets with convenient fiat gateways.
Why to use NBX instead of another cryptocurrency exchange?
Besides being supervised by the financial authority, our goal is to be best-in-class in compliance and regulatory transparency, putting AML/KYC due diligence front and centre. This attracts institutional clients as well, who demand stability, robust security and risk mitigation, the confidence to use NBX technology to trade and use payment services securely. Even though on our platform we have listed the most popular cryptocurrencies in the world such as Bitcoin and Ethereum available for purchase or trading with fiat currencies (NOK, SEK, DKK, EUR), our over-the-counter solution (OTC desk) covers the most demanded cryptocurrencies that are available for purchase as a personalized service for customers that need to fill larger order.
NBX is the only exchange in Nordics that offers insurance for it’s clients by being a part of Ledger Vault’s insurance pool, and offers one of the lowest fees on the Scandinavian market.
While cryptocurrency and digital asset trading has been until recently shrouded in mystery and seemingly walled off to all but the most tech-savvy investors, NBX aims to make cryptocurrency exchange a part of all kinds of investors’ everyday experience.
