Regulatory oversight and cooperation between regulators, exchanges and financial institutions have been a bone of contention in the cryptocurrency industry for the last 4-5 years and appears to reach a level of maturity which could bring a whole new breed of services to customers. iCE3X have quietly been building their business since laying foundations back in 2013. They have a tight-knit team of highly experienced individuals with a clear vision of where they want to take the business.

We have opened a dialogue with some prominent financial institutions and are in the advanced stages of implementing our business development roadmap. 

said Gareth Grobler, Founder and CEO of iCE3X.

At iCE3X, Etsebeth will actively seek business opportunities and partnerships, constantly engage and work with regulators and concentrate on expanding the business with comprehensive policies and processes.

Grobler further commented:

Eugene’s expertise in payment systems, traditional finance, cryptocurrencies and respected position in the regulatory environment make him the ideal person to drive our vision for growth in South Africa. Cryptocurrencies operate in an environment that is yet to be defined in terms of regulation and how its interaction with FIAT can be monitored. Having Eugene’s experience and insight will be invaluable, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with him.

The Partnership

Eugene Etsebeth has a strong vision:

I look forward to making digital assets a safe, convenient and vital part of all South Africans’ wealth portfolios within the stable of iCE3X products.
