8. June 2020, Zurich, Switzerland, WIRESWARM, the leading Enterprise crypto- and digital asset order- and execution management platform for banks, announces a strategic partnership with Deribit, a leading crypto derivatives platform for futures and options, allowing banks to trade crypto derivatives on behalf of their clients.
Over the last few years since its inception, Deribit has dominated the crypto derivatives landscape by being the largest crypto options exchange with unmatched open interest that has just seen a new record high of USD 1 billion in BTC options listed as of the 20th of May.
The partnership with Deribit enables all institutional WIRESWARM clients to gain direct market access to Deribit´s diverse crypto derivatives offering, including digital asset options, futures, and perpetual swaps instruments to satisfy the ever-growing appetite of institutional market participants for enterprise-grade market infrastructure and direct market access to crypto financial instruments.
With the addition of Deribit to WIRESWARM´s extensive list of the most liquid and regulated trading and execution venues, WIRESWARM enables banks and other financial institutions to maintain a single yet secure connection to major digital asset liquidity providers. A single standard FIX connection links the financial institution’s core banking or order management system to WIRESWARM, delivering seamless and secure access to a comprehensive array of exchanges, market makers, and brokers. Only this one single FIX connection is needed to gain access to the entire market. Using WIRESWARM, a bank can choose the optimal trading counterparties to ensure best price execution thereby fulfilling regulatory requirements.
The partnership will extend the reach of both parties’ customer footprints. WIRESWARM clients will be able to access Deribit`s broad range of crypto derivatives products to source liquidity directly from Deribit while Deribit will gain access to WIRESWARM´s pool of institutional clients.
“With more institutions entering the crypto derivatives markets, we are glad to partner with WIRESWARM.
