UK crypto app Tap Global announced in a press release on 10 January that it became the first listing on the Aquis Stock Exchange in 2023. The listing was achieved through the acquisition of the crypto app by a listed company Quetzal Capital, which traded $24.9 million of its own stock in return for control over the company. Quetzal also issued new shares to raise a further $3.8 million. Tap Global CEO David Carr said the company determined to continue the listing process despite the negative market sentiment as it would like to provide a regulated option for UK residents.
