SC: Malaysia only has 3 Digital Asset Exchanges (DAX) currently

Following the coming into force of the Capital Markets and Services (Prescription of Securities) (Digital Currency and Digital Token) Order 2019 on 15 January 2019, and the subsequent issuance of the revised Guidelines on Recognized Markets on 31 January 2019 to introduce new requirements for DAX operators, the SC has now registered three Recognized Market Operators (RMOs) to establish and operate digital asset exchanges in Malaysia.

Entities which have not been approved by the SC, including those which have previously been operating under the transitional period, are required to cease all activities immediately and return all monies and assets collected from investors.

These lists will regularly be updated and members of the public are encouraged to refer to these lists when dealing with digital asset exchanges.
