MaiCoin, a crypto exchange based in Taipei, is considering selling shares on Nasdaq within two years, Bloomberg reported, citing people with knowledge of the matter. A definitive decision, however, has yet to be made.

  • The exchange is completing a Series C funding round that may value the company at $400 million, Bloomberg said.
  • MaiCoin did not respond to a request for comment from CoinDesk.
  • The exchange makes the majority of its revenue from Taiwan, according to publicly available figures. It counts Taishin Venture Capital, a subsidiary of Taiwan’s Taishin Bank, as one of its investors.
  • Traders on the exchange are able to use the Taiwan dollar through domestic bank transfers. They can also buy crypto at many convenience stores.
  • MaiCoin expects trading revenue to rise more than 70% annually through 2025, documents reviewed by Bloomberg showed.
  • MaiCoin’s MAX exchange pushes around $20.4 million trading volume a day, according to data from CoinGecko.
  • A Taiwan dollar stablecoin project is also being backed by MaiCoin, but regulatory challenges from the island’s Central Bank may hamper its development.
