Doing the unthinkable: Bridging the world of traditional finance, crypto, and DeFi 

Shift Markets has been an innovative leader in financial markets since the early 2000s and is continuing its mission of global financial equity by stepping into the crypto space. Shift’s crypto liquidity arm, Nexus Markets, provides clients with unique pairings of stablecoins, niche cryptos, and an easy-to-use platform. Shift Markets has not only partnered with DeFi projects such as Alkemi but has also recently launched a DEX (decentralized exchange) built on Algorand. This DEX, named Cables, integrates currency rails from traditional finance into crypto seamlessly. By creating a symbiotic relationship between TradFi and crypto, Shift Markets merges and reinforces the advantages of both financial ecosystems.

As blockchain and cryptocurrencies have become widely adopted over the last several years, history still shows a large disparity between them and traditional finance. TradFi has more to gain than lose from blockchain technologies, including greater transparency, increased accessibility, and enhanced security. With a very bright horizon for the merging of the two, thought leaders such as Shift Markets have changed their product offerings to be the best conduit for both parties. 

It’s not too late for market-makers and enterprises to start utilizing the next generation of financial technology. Shift offers a wide product offering to fit every business’s needs, big or small. With a global team and over 40+ years of expertise, the team at Shift provides an unparalleled experience to its clients.
