2021: FTX partnered with Ledger and acquired LedgerX
The digital asset exchange has recently partnered with Ledger, a popular hardware wallet and gateway to Web3. Ledger’s self-custody application will have access to FTX’s liquidity, leverage, and trading options, thus enabling users in 150 countries to trade across 300 digital.
The partnership solves one of the ongoing dilemmas for crypto investors: where your assets are accessible and where they are safest. Hardware wallets are usually considered the most secure option, but they make transactions an unwelcomed extra step.
Deposit to and withdrawal from the FTX platform has become easy and speedy for the benefit of Ledger Live users, who will gain access to over 300 trading pairs, including BTC-ETH, BTC-SOL, while using the hardware wallet.
Also this year, FTX reduced the maximum leverage allowed on the platform and reported that average daily volume grew by over 150 times when compared to the same time last year with the peak of $993 million coming in a 24 hour period on April 22, 2021.
The exchange operator also acquired LedgerX, a CFTC-regulated exchange and clearinghouse, that operates as a Designated Contract Market (DCM), Swap Execution Facility (SEF), and Derivatives Clearing Organization (DCO) that caters to both retail and institutional investors.
