GSTechnologies has signed a contract with a provider of crypto exchange infrastructure to build out the exchange and provide the underlying operations technology. GST plans to launch the new crypto exchange in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The company noted that acquiring a European license for its crypto exchange is a significant milestone as part of its plans to expand the adoption of its Sablecoin across the region.

GSTechnlologies noted that its primary objective with all its fintech businesses was to roll out GS Money starting with three initial use-cases: a private stablecoin, borderless accounts and international money transfers.

The firm intends to use the upcoming crypto exchange to push for the broader adoption of its stablecoin and the use of its international money transfer service and its borderless accounts. GST will also integrate the crypto exchange with its Angra Business.

Tone Goh, Chairman of GST, commented: “With the acquisition of Glindala, our total addressable market is now much broader, and it creates a step change in our combined offerings to our clients. For example, instead of solely relying on costly wire transfers to conduct cross-border trading transactions, Angra’s clients will soon be able to pay out and get paid in crypto assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, stablecoins, and other digital assets.”

So, should you buy GST shares? Today’s move is a vital sign that GST shares could be headed since they came off a significant support level. However, I’d monitor the stock for the next few days to see if we will get a retest and a better entry.
