  • Diginex stock went live on Nasdaq Thursday morning under the ticker symbol “EQOS, which resembles the company’s trading platform – Diginex warrants will trade under the “EQOSW” symbol. 
  • A critical development that facilitated the Nasdaq listing came recently when the company raised $50 million.
