Seed CX, an exchange for institutional trading and settlement of spot digital asset products, announces that investors can now access its market via Deltix’s crypto-trading platform, CryptoCortex.
Deltix, which launched the CryptoCortex platform this year, provides quantitative research, analytics and algorithmic trading solutions for equities, futures, options and FX.
“Deltix’s CryptoCortex trading platform is preferred by the world’s most sophisticated quantitative trading firms and market makers, and we expect strong demand for trading on Seed CX’s spot and derivatives markets,” says Ilya Gorelik, founder and CEO of Deltix.
“We are excited about connecting Deltix’s CryptoCortex platform to Seed CX, as it allows for frictionless access to our markets,” says Edward Woodford, co-founder and CEO of Seed CX. “Partnering with Deltix is another step in Seed CX becoming the digital asset trading standard for institutional investors.”
David Neulle, managing director at Chicago-based Hehmeyer Tading + Investment, says that his firm is excited to begin trading on Seed CX, adding: “We believe that Seed CX will bring the level of professionalism to the digital asset markets that we have come to expect in other conventional markets. The combination of a broad product mix and superior technology will enable Seed CX to become a leading exchange in the digital asset space. We also believe its business model as a regulated SEF will appeal to the institutional community. We intend to be very active on Seed CX from inception.”
Avelacom announced that it has partnered with XTRD to “provide low latency access to all major crypto exchanges globally”.
The sub-millisecond market data and order routing, delivered over the Avelacom network, is designed to help XTRD to aggregate liquidity across exchanges in Asia, Europe and the US in the fastest way. In particular, this partnership should enable improved arbitrage strategies across the top 10 Asian cryptocurrency exchanges, such as BitMEX, Binance, Bittrex, Huobiand OKEx.
Commenting on the partnership, Aleksey Larichev, Avelacom’s managing director, says: “We found a big gap between the demands of our institutional clients and the typical solutions provided over the Internet. Web-based applications will never meet the expectations of institutional investors. We are best known for working with global market makers and HFTs, so it was natural for us to adapt our IT infrastructure for institutional crypto trading. We are glad to be part of the crypto evolution and to help shape it into a more developed and professional-grade market.”
Serg Gulko, XTRD’s CTO and founder, comments: “Our team has over 30 years of experience building robust, battle-tested trading systems in FX, equities, derivatives, and other instruments. Definitely our aim in cryptocurrency markets is to provide the same grade solutions for our investor clients. Avelacom came up with a solution that helps to improve market data services and allows us to provide our institutional clients with best-in-class services in crypto markets.”
