The Crypto Harbour

Building Towards the World’s Leading Token Sale Platform and Cryptocurrency Exchange


Redefining Token
Listing Standards

The Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX) will be a world-leading institutional grade token sale platform and cryptocurrency exchange. Built upon principles of decentralisation and community consensus, we seek to create a new era of trust, openness and global acceptance for the crypto industry, one quality token listing at a time.


A Crypto Exchange Unlike Any Other


Based on the ideals of public consensus and trust, coupled with AML / KYC best practices, the GBX Trusted Listing Process will allow the community to flourish, whilst protecting all participants, in a governed environment.


With a rules based system established by the community for enhanced clarity and infrastructure, the GBX will set the stage for greater confidence, credibility and transparency for all members of the crypto community.

The GSX is regulated by GFSC under License number FSC 1231B and operates as an EU-regulated market,

With a wealth of capital markets experience at its helm, in a time where uncertainties and risks loom over the industry.

The GBX has the solution to turn fear, uncertainty and doubt

The GBX Trusted Listing Process

A Crypto Harbour For The Community.

To bring clarity and order with a rules-based system that is anchored on community consensus, the GBX has established an international forum with representatives from cross sections of the community to form the GBX Alliance.

The GBX Alliance allows the best minds of the crypto industry to gather and form thought leadership around the growing token industry. The GBX Alliance also serves as a thinktank to shape the evolution of Gibraltar’s crypto economy.

From within the GBX Alliance, members are elected to form the GBX Alliance Council.

The council, representing the voices of the community, works hand in hand with the GBX to establish and review guidelines and standards that govern token listing and trading. The council is also pivotal in instating codes of conduct, sponsor firm admission criteria as well as an appeals committee.

In order to list on the GBX, a token candidate is required to appoint a GBX accredited Sponsor Firm. Sponsor firms are body corporates and key influencers, with proven industry expertise, that have met the admission criteria set forth by the GBX and the Alliance council to be enlisted in the GBX trusted partners network.

Sponsor firms are responsible for rigorous due diligence, advice and communication between the token candidate and the GBX throughout the entire listing process. Sponsor firms are key to upholding best practices and assurance of quality.

The nature of the listing protocol sets a high entry bar to ensure quality, safety and transparency in all token listings on the GBX.

01 – To initiate the Token Generation Event (TGE), token candidates must first possess substance and viable proof of concept in order to enlist the services of a Sponsor Firm.

02 – The Sponsor Firm (SF) then prepares the token candidate for their application review, adhering to the guidelines and codes of conduct put in place by the GBX Alliance Council. In addition, an innovative sponsor staking mechanism will further enhance the quality assessment of candidates.

03 – The GBX will make a final decision after a series of reviews in line with the regulatory framework and successful token admissions will then be announced and approved for trading on the secondary market.

With the GBX governance, the community is rewarded with another high quality token listing and with it, synergy and opportunities.
