We hope that more companies in the cryptocurrency and blockchain markets will see The Bahamas as an ideal destination for their operations. I believe the relocation of the worlds third-largest cryptocurrency exchange to our shores sends a clear signal to the rest of the Finch world that The Bahamas is open for business, said Davis.

As a part of my governments forward-looking agenda, we recognize that digital transformation is key to unlocking the potential of our economy and expanding access for all people, Davis said.

Blockchain has a huge role to play in the transformation. The benefits of this technology have the potential to drive advancements in financial services, health care, the arts, and culture to create new opportunities for local professionals and improve the quality of life for many Bahamians.
