(the "Company" or "DeFi Technologies") (NEO: DEFI) (GR: RMJR) (OTC: DEFTF), a technology company bridging the gap between traditional capital markets and decentralized finance, is pleased to announce that DeFi Technologies' common shares (the "Common Shares") are now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement through the Depository Trust Company ("DTC").
DTC is a subsidiary of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, a U.S. company that manages the electronic clearing and settlement of securities for publicly traded companies in the United States.
