MAJURO, Marshall Islands, Feb. 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Gate Group, the world-leading exchange, is committed to expanding its presence in the Hong Kong market by applying for a new crypto license which will allow them to launch Gate HK, a new platform designed for the Hong Kong market. Following on from Gate Group’s Hong Kong-based company, Hippo Financial Services Limited (Hippo FS), obtaining its Trust or Company Service Provider (TCSP) Licence last August.
Last August, Hippo FS obtained the TCSP license, permitting them to provide virtual asset custodial services to global users.

Having obtained the TCSP License in HK, Gate Group is also preparing for a crypto license and fine-tuning Gate HK, a new platform tailored to serve HK’s growing crypto market, stay tuned.”
The impending launch of Gate HK following the group’s new cryptocurrency license application and the acquisition of the TCSP license are significant steps toward the growth and expansion of blockchain and virtual asset adoption. These moves not only deepen the group’s relationship with global crypto investors but also provide added confidence to investors who entrust Gate Group.
“Hong Kong is a global strategic market for Gate Group, not only because Hong Kong is the hub for many financial institutions and investors, but more importantly, the industry-leading regulatory regime of Hong Kong helps boost confidence for the whole industry and provides additional stability for investors.” Dr. Lin Han added.
