AlgoTrader is an institutional trading technology developer for digital assets. It covers the entire trade lifecycle, from pre-trade risk checks to order generation, automated settlement and custody reconciliation.
Fenbushi Capital partner Rin Huang said: ?The segmentation of crypto markets, and the related price differences, have always posed major problems for institutional traders. As Asia first blockchain-focused VC firm, we are very well acquainted with these challenges and have seen how AlgoTrader innovative solutions open up new opportunities for banks, brokers, OTC desks and market makers, giving them greatly enhanced access to this burgeoning sector.
?We are excited to support AlgoTrader vision and to help them onboard the next wave of institutional traders into the digital asset ecosystem.p>
