Atlas, an operator in the digital currency marketplace, and The National Stock Exchange (NSX), an electronic stock exchange, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to have NSX develop and enforce rules to regulate the former, and turn the exchange into the first regulated US digital currency exchange.

The Atlas exchange has recently been trading digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin, as well as options on digital currencies, or crypto-currencies. The Atlas regulatory rule will be based upon rules already in use by US stock and options exchanges.

Atlas is driven to be an industry player in operating a digital currency marketplace and providing products and services for the global trading community.
