BEQUANT has integrated crypto exchange KuCoin on its prime brokerage platform and added to the growing list of exchanges that the digital asset prime brokerage offers to its clients.

BEQUANT Pro acts as a broker, providing clients with access to the KuCoin exchange in addition to all of Pro’s features including transfer management, cross-margining, and leverage as well as access to another 12 major exchanges, including Binance, FTX, BitFinex, OKX, and BEQUANT Exchange.

Spot, Margin, Fiat, Futures, Staking and Lending

KuCoin offers Spot trading, Margin trading, Fiat trading, Futures trading, Staking, and Lending to its 10 million users in 207 countries and regions around the world.

The “top 1 altcoin exchange” boasts more than 600 tradable assets and over 1,000 trading pairs. BLOK, CHMB, VR, KMA, and DAO, among other projects, had their primary listing on KuCoin.

George Zarya, Founder and CEO at BEQUANT, commented “We are happy to integrate KuCoin into the BEQUANT platform. It will allow us to offer our clients unlimited access to KuCoin’s assets to our users.”

Johnny Lyu, Chief Executive Officer at KuCoin, said: “Investors are utilizing various derivative and spot trading models and our partnership with BEQUANT will help them achieve their aims. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with George and the team to facilitate the mass adoption of crypto.”

BEQUANT Pro caters to more than 100 institutional clients, offering them direct market access to multiple trading venues through one account and an ability to cross margin all balances.

The prime brokerage platform for institutional clients also provides its users with reduced trading costs, up to 9x leverage, dedicated 24/7 customer support, and an individual client manager, as well as OTC block trade execution and fiat-to-crypto trading.

Its breadth of products includes prime brokerage, custody and fund administration, as the Malta-regulated prime brokerage boasts a team of experts from institutional, retail, and digital financial services with experience in banking, derivatives, electronic trading, and prime brokerage.

KuCoin was established in September 2017 and is backed by IDG Capital and Matrix Partners. The digital asset exchange is usually among the top 5 crypto exchanges.

The firm has recently announced its plans to become the number one social trading platform within the digital asset space, having introduced multiple social trading features on its mobile app as retail traders are increasingly entering the markets from a community perspective.

The platform boasts a “special space” called KuCoin S, where invited users can experience new functions prior to their official launch on the KuCoin App.
