Digital asset firm Galaxy Digital has taken another step in its relocation from the Cayman Islands to Delaware by filing a registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

  • The domestication move also comes with a planned listing of Class A common stock on Nasdaq under the “GLXY” ticker symbol. Galaxy Digital, which was founded by Mike Novogratz, currently trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the same symbol.
  • The process is undergoing an SEC review, and the new listing is dependent on stock exchange approval.
  • The proposed reorganization is also subject to approval by Galaxy Digital shareholders and the applicable regulatory authorities, including the Toronto Stock Exchange.
  • In November, Galaxy Digital said it agreed to sell $500 million worth of notes exchangeable for shares in a private placement.
