“I specialise in crypto and digital assets at GCEX. Brokers must be aware of limitations and core requirements in order to provide the best liquidity sourcing and delivery possible”, said Henry Price, Quant & Digital Assets Specialist at GCEX. “Having begun my career in the crypto industry, I’d like to explain a few nuances of the market and asset class in general, how they differ from traditional markets, and how to capitalise on opportunities at an institutional and regulated level.”
