Interviewed By Emmanuel Daniel

At Hong Kong FinTech Week 2023, Anna Liu, general manager of tokenisation at HashKey Group, and Leo Li, CEO of the subsidiary HashQuark, talked about HashKey’s business model and network infrastructure

HashKey Group, the company behind one of the first licensed cryptocurrency exchanges in Hong Kong, HashKey Exchange, is solidifying its Web3 ecosystem while expanding its tokenisation services.  

HashKey Group is a leading end-to-end digital asset services provider in Asia catering to retail investors, institutions, family offices, funds, and professional investors. It offers a wide range of services, including a licensed virtual asset exchange, brokerage platform, custody services, and global digital asset management. Its subsidiary, HashQuark, is a Web3 infrastructure service provider focused on ‘staking’ services using proof-of-stake blockchain technologies worldwide.

Its home base, Hong Kong, has introduced new rules to support the growth of the digital asset industry, including the authorisation of digital asset platforms to serve retail investors. 

Liu said: “Our goal remains the same: to be based in Hong Kong and make it a hub for high-quality Web3 projects and a gathering place for global capital. This way, it aligns more with the government’s aspiration to make Hong Kong a global hub for Web3.”  

She also highlighted the opportunities for collaboration on digital assets in Asia and beyond, hinting at potential partnerships with financial institutions for the tokenisation of traditional financial assets.  

“Traditional financial institutions have also approached us. Their interest in collaboration with us comes from tokenising traditional financial assets. Currently, it’s more in this direction but in the future, it’s not ruled out that we will also have business cooperation,” said Liu.
