14 October 2020. iExec obtained a Visa from the ‘Autorité des Marchés Financiers’ (the French equivalent of the SEC) for its new Enterprise Marketplace token swap offering, allowing enterprises to exchange cloud resources in a regulated and compliant environment.

Another key feature coming to the marketplace is the ability for companies to generate/get invoices according to the resources they provided/consumed, which is an accounting requisite of all companies when doing invoice reconciliation.
