“At the cornerstone of the DeFi ecosystem, Uniswap has the breadth of assets and depth of liquidity that institutional traders need. And to have this partnership powered by Fireblocks, a digital assets infrastructure provider trusted by some of the most renowned institutions, is very fitting.”

Talos, a leader in digital asset trading technology, has partnered with Uniswap Labs, a prominent name in decentralized finance (DeFi), to introduce decentralized liquidity and onchain settlement for institutional traders.

This partnership enables Talos clients to access Uniswap’s liquidity in a real-time order book format, utilizing Talos’s advanced algorithmic strategies. Fireblocks supports the integration, providing custody and transfer of digital assets for Talos clients.

Enhanced pricing, MEV protection, and gasless swaps

Uniswap Labs’ Trading APIs will offer enterprise-grade access to a broad liquidity venue in DeFi, integrating thousands of assets in a familiar format for Talos clients. UniswapX ecosystem, offering enhanced pricing, MEV protection, and gasless swaps, will soon be accessible to Talos clients.

Anton Katz, CEO of Talos, highlighted the partnership’s role in expanding liquidity access and making digital assets more accessible in the open financial marketplace. “We are thrilled to be working with Uniswap Labs and Fireblocks to expand liquidity access for our institutional clients. At the cornerstone of the DeFi ecosystem, Uniswap has the breadth of assets and depth of liquidity that institutional traders need. And to have this partnership powered by Fireblocks, a digital assets infrastructure provider trusted by some of the most renowned institutions, is very fitting. Together, we share a vision of making digital assets more accessible in a financial marketplace that’s more open.”

Uniswap’s smart contract expertise and deep liquidity are pivotal for institutional traders, said Mary-Catherine Lader, COO of Uniswap Labs. “We welcome Talos clients to the Uniswap ecosystem: deep liquidity, expansive assets, and safe on-chain settlement 24/7. Uniswap Labs’ smart contract expertise has transformed blockchain-based markets. This integration brings institutions the deep liquidity they need and sophisticated smart-contract market structure that they’ve never had access to before. It’s a big step forward for adoption of onchain markets.”

Fireblocks, instrumental in this collaboration, has facilitated $6 billion in Uniswap deployments in the past year, according to CEO Michael Shaulov. “In the last 12 months, Fireblocks customers have deployed $6 billion into Uniswap. Being that we’ve long supported Talos’s integrations and have previously supported Uniswap Labs via retail connectors, we are thrilled that Uniswap Labs is now a part of this ecosystem to simplify workflows for Fireblocks customers. We’re committed to remaining at the forefront of providing enterprise-grade technology and are proud to work with Talos and Uniswap to deliver an important point of entry to a significant source of liquidity.”
