Hata Receives ALP from SC for DAX and Broker

Hata, led by David Low, former APAC General Manager of Luno, has received Approval-in-Principle (ALP) from the Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) to register as a Recognized Market Operator for both Digital Asset Exchange (DAX) and Digital Broker (DB).

This makes Hata the fifth regulated DAX in Malaysia, allowing Malaysians to securely buy, sell, and store cryptocurrencies on a local platform. Additionally, Hata is the first entity to obtain DB approval from the SC.

David Low, CEO of Hata, expressed excitement about the conditional approvals and the company’s plans to obtain full approvals from the SC before opening its platform to Malaysian customers by early 2024. Hata aims to be a reliable one-stop platform for digital asset access and investment, catering to institutional investors, businesses, and high-net-worth individuals.
