Trive had previously invested $11.5 million in the first phase of its 2022 Series A round, as the latter reaffirmed its confidence in the exchange. The exchange said that expanding its operations will enable it to more effectively navigate the complex regulatory environment throughout Southeast Asia.

In April 2020, it received full approval from the Malaysian Securities Commission, making it the second-largest digital asset platform in the country. The company has also applied for a digital payment token license in Singapore under the current exemption.

The unique nature of Singapore’s regulations

Coinbase Singapore Country Director Hassan Ahmed recently shared his insights on the legislative landscape for digital assets in the city-state, acknowledging the government’s efforts.

“As a financial center, Singapore continues to provide a high level of regulatory transparency,” Ahmed said. “The Monetary Authority of Singapore(MAS) is among the most sophisticated regulators we work with around the world.”

According to Ahmed, Singapore is at the forefront of discussions on digital finance, creating an ecosystem in which crypto ventures can succeed and work with different regulatory frameworks.
