Kasikorn Business-Technology Group (KBTG) is preparing to enter the digital asset market through Kubix Digital Asset, an initial coin offering (ICO) portal, with an aim to become the leader in the investment development sphere.

Ruangroj Poonpol, KBTG chairman and the board chairman of Kubix, said Kubix received Securities and Exchange Commission approval to operate an ICO portal business on Sept 7 and is awaiting its business licence activation by the regulator.

To reach the forefront of the investment development sphere, Kubix aims to launch a full-fledged system for digital token offerings in the primary market via blockchain this year.

The company is preparing the platform to provide digital asset-related knowledge to the Thai public.

Kubix strives to enhance confidence in the digital asset market by converting tangible assets with real-world value into tokens in order to decrease risks from volatility.

The conversion is intended to create novel investment formats that allow businesses easier access to funding sources while also offering investors more extensive and diverse investment opportunities that match their lifestyles, he said.

Mr Ruangroj said Kubix's goal is to redefine investment in Thailand and persuade Thais to invest more as the company believes the ultimate outcome of investment goes beyond monetary gains.

The company aims to allow customers to invest in new forms of assets and build sustainable returns, he said.

Mr Ruangroj said investment in the digital asset market recorded rapid growth last year.

In operating Kubix, KBTG seeks to utilise Kasikornbank's investment knowledge and experience, combining it with the company's strength in financial technology.

KBTG also forged a partnership with the Stock Exchange of Thailand to establish the Thai Digital Asset Platform, working towards realising this ecosystem.
