360 Blockchain Inc (CSE:CODE), fomerly 360 Capital Financial Services Group Inc, started trading on the CSE with effect from October 10 as it advances into this emerging industry, which it believes will reshape business.
"By investing capital and expertise, we accelerate the development and application of public and private blockchain technologies.
"The company is completing its due diligence relating to several technologies in the blockchain and cryptocurrency fields. As 360 seeks to "Empower the Blockchain Revolution" its leadership is focused on early-stage opportunities," it said in a brief regulatory statement.
The firm noted that one key area of interest was eSports.
