Gallant Exchange today announces the launch of its sports and digital asset trading platform. The platform opens for trading today with the announcement of Gallant’s President, Rick Beaman, former CEO of Nasdaq Futures Exchange (NFX).

Rick Beaman is an exchange executive who is the former chief executive officer of Nasdaq Futures Exchange (NFX), Nasdaq’s U.S.-based energy exchange. Following his success at NFX, Mr. Beaman transitioned to the chief executive officer of San Juan Mercantile Exchange (SJMX) in December of 2018. He has been involved in the Exchange, Clearing, and Brokering of Commodities for 23 years and today joins Gallant Exchange as President.

“I am extremely proud to lead and be a part of today’s launch of the Gallant Exchange, to bring Passion of two incredible worlds of Digital Assets and Sports together on one trading platform.  Gallant Exchange will allow fans of digital assets and global sports to converge and trade both.” – Rick Beaman, President, Gallant Exchange

Simon Grunfeld, Gallant Exchange Founder, and CEO, who since 2008, has been at the lead of numerous global retail and institutional trading and exchange platforms, remarked, “Our team is thrilled to have Rick at the helm. A world-class operator and leader of leaders, his proven experience within the world of capital markets will no doubt help Gallant achieve success on the road to come.”

The Gallant Exchange is designed for fans and athletes, first. The platform is built to support the trading of Athlete Coins (ACs) as well as the largest digital assets. Athlete Coins are minted on the ERC20 protocol, tradeable on the Gallant platform, and increase or decrease in value subject to market forces. Users can enter into trading competitions, contests, raffles for real-world collectibles and memorabilia of the respective athlete as a coin holder; in time, Gallant aims to provide more lucrative ‘experience’ prizes, providing fans direct interaction with their favorite athlete. When the value of the prize increases, so do the parameters of qualification to win.

Gallant intends to provide endorsed or “Athlete Backed” Coins by working with athletes directly to provide fans direct ownership in athlete’s contracts, business ventures, or endorsements. Gallant’s Initial Player Offering(IPO), seeks to provide direct investment opportunities by tokenizing an athlete’s contract or future endeavors.

In partnership with the Financial Commission’s Blockchain Association (an international, non-governmental self-regulatory organization), Gallant provides end-to-end client services and support across Athlete Coin and digital asset transactions. Gallant currently accepts digital asset payments including Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin, and USDC; users may withdraw to USDC or their preferred digital assets as wanted.

On behalf of Team Gallant,
