We at Blockmanity had a chance to catch up with Mr. M Kishor and talk about his latest venture Future1Exchange.
Blockmanity: Cryptocurrency exchange is already a crowded market. Why do you plan to enter now?
M Kishor: The market is not regulated hence it is crowded. Once it is regulated only exchanges with the license will be allowed to operate. And Future1exchange is licensed and regulated in Estonia Europe. This gives us an advantage over other exchanges. We will soon see investors & traders moving over from unlicensed exchanges to licensed exchanges in the near futures and future1exchange will greatly benefit from it.
Our Exchange being licensed and regulated will build trust in the market.
Blockmanity: I see, and what separates Future One Exchange from other exchanges?
M Kishor: Future1exchange is an Institutional Grade Crypto Exchange catering to both retail and professional clients. The platform allows users to buy, sell, and store digital assets. We have tied up with Ecxx for their trading platform , ledger vault for custody solutions, Paxos and OSL for OTC , Accuity and Cynopsis for KYC and AML , KYC (Know Your Token) for Token Project listing due diligence , Bitcurate to offer forecast on crypto assets based on Artificial Intelligence in real time , DWF law firm for their legal services.
Blockmanity: The word Institutional grade has come up a lot in your answers. Could you tell us what it is and how does an institutional-grade exchange differ from a normal exchange?
M Kishor: In the financial world institutional exchanges are considered the best in class for service. They have the best security, are customer-focused, and provide a complete & world-class service to their users.
Future1exchange is bringing that to the retail investors. We are giving Fort-Knox Security, Multi-signature Custody Services, a High-Speed Matching Engine, 24/7 transaction monitoring engine, and instant deposits and withdrawals. We are also assuring our clients, that their digital asset on Future1exchange will be 100% reserved and won’t be used anywhere else.
Blockmanity: Ah I see, how did you get the idea of Future1exchange?
M Kishor: Being an Ex Hedge Fund Manager and working in the Financial Markets for over 3 decades I have seen governments, banks, and institutions controlling and manipulating the system for their own benefit at the cost of the public.
I believe Bitcoin and Blockchain will bring the power back into the hands of the people. Cryptocurrency will be the future of Money. Future1exchange was born to accelerate the world’s transition from a centralized based system to a decentralized system.
Blockmanity: How long have you been in the cryptocurrency space, and what attracted you here?
M Kishor: I have been in the crypto space since 2016. I was honestly bitten by the Bitcoin bug and was attracted to the amazingly positive impact of Crypto technology (i.e. blockchain, cryptocurrency, smart contracts, etc )
Blockmanity: What are the next steps for Future1Exchange?
M Kishor: We are expanding and will be opening offices in Europe, the Middle East, and SouthEast Asia and hire more people.
We have a stellar team – Herbert Sim from Huobi aka the Bitcoin Man, Eman Pulis founder of Malta blockchain Summit and Saleem Mohammad Founder & CEO of Tescon and World Blockchain Summit has joined our Board of Advisor.
Blockmanity: What’s your goal with Future1Exchange?
M Kishor: The goal is to provide retail investors with best in class exchange in the world.
My Vision is to create the most compelling Blockchain & Cryptocurrency company of the 21st century and to accelerate the world’s transition to adoption of Blockchain & Crypto.
Through Future1exchange Platform, everyone will be able to buy cryptocurrencies and startups will be able to raise funds for their ideas through token offering & listing.
