More Than Just a Crypto Exchange

Norwegian Block Exchange (NBX) started as a spin-off from Norwegian Air Shuttle to introduce cryptocurrency payments to the air industry with the incentive to reduce cost related to payments, and the potential to be a leading exchange. NBX today is a pioneering, truly Norwegian cryptocurrency exchange, custodian and a payment system that sets the standard for user experience, transparency and security. NBX was founded by the NAS founder, Bjørn Kjos, who also founded Bank Norwegian.

NBX sees the potential to becoming a hub for financial services in the cryptocurrency economy. Aiming so, NBX evolves in a reliable marketplace for buying, selling and making payments in cryptocurrencies or other digital assets with convenient fiat gateways.

Every cryptocurrency platform promises security, of course — when we’re talking about your money, that’s serious business. We take that a step further ensuring that security and transparency go hand in hand. NBX has worked to be best-in-class in compliance and regulatory transparency, putting AML/KYC due diligence front and centre, making it clear how we operate. This attracts institutional clients as well, who demand stability, robust security and risk mitigation, the confidence to use NBX technology to trade and use payment services securely. While cryptocurrency and digital asset trading has been until recently shrouded in mystery and seemingly walled off to all but the most tech-savvy investors, NBX aims to make cryptocurrency exchange a part of all kinds of investors’ everyday experience.

NBX is regulated by the Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway (Finanstilsynet).

NBX is audited. The auditor for NBX is Moore (https://www.moore-global.com).

Trade and Fly

Maybe it should be enough to be part of revolutionizing the financial landscape, but trading with NBX offers more than that. When you use NBX to trade, you earn Norwegian Reward CashPoints — getting you up in the air and seeing the world faster than ever. Use them to buy flight tickets, reserving your favorite seat, making changes to your booking or other services from Norwegian Air Shuttle. It makes sense: NBX was an idea that came about in conversation related to Norwegian Air Shuttle. In essence, what could Norwegian do in the burgeoning cryptocurrency and blockchain space that would upend expectations in much the same way as Norwegian did for low-cost air travel? In discussing cryptocurrency exchanges and enabling crypto-based payments, we realized there was a bigger picture.

Next Step: An everyday way to pay

We also think there can be more to cryptocurrency trading and investing than just “playing the market”. In aiming to refashion cryptocurrency as a solution as normal as paying with cash or credit cards today, we firmly believe that there must be real-world applications and benefits tied to participating in NBX exchange services. You should be able to make payments for goods and services using your cryptocurrency, and businesses should be able to accept crypto in exchange for goods and services. Crypto payments should be as transparent and hassle-free as any other payment method available today. With this in mind, we built our NBXPay service idea. In order to make it happen, we’re going to obtain the E-money License and release the payment solution in 2021.
