ASX was founded 2019 by Paddy Power, the son of David Power who co-founded the bookmaker of the same name, and is one of several startups eager to take advantage of liberalised gambling laws in the US. ASX is building a virtual stock market that allows players to buy shares in players and compete in leaderboards against other players for cash prizes.
