While Wall Street is only making baby steps to accept crypto, Jamaica takes a huge leap by deciding to list digital assets on its stock exchange. From now on, the Jamaican Stock Exchange (JSE) is launching a research project to come up with a platform that would make it easier for the country to use cryptocurrencies. Mainstream adoption is going to happen later this year.    

Marlene Street Forrest, the General Manager of the JSE, believes that the Jamaican people should be able to invest in cryptocurrencies along with other securities. She also claims that adding crypto assets to the exchange is primarily a safety measure.
