CoinShares officially announced the first day of trading on the main Nasdaq Stockholm exchange on December 19, where CoinShares shares began trading under the ticker (symbol) CS.
This premiere represents a change in the listing location of CoinShares shares.

“CoinShares shareholders do not need to take any action in connection with the change of listing location,” the company noted.
According to the CEO of CoinShares, Jean-Marie Mognetti, the change in trading venue is intended to emphasize the company’s commitment to developing the firm into the “premier full-service digital asset trading and investment group”. He claimed:
“We believe the change in listing location will allow us to benefit from increased investor visibility and exposure, while supporting our ambition to increase our market share.”
