Tradu: FXCM-sister multi-asset platform taps Crossover’s ECN for crypto offering
“We believe that our distribution, coupled with CROSSx’s technical prowess, creates one of the most compelling digital asset trading offerings on the market.”
Crossover Markets Group Inc., a digital asset technology firm, has announced its collaboration with Tradu, the upcoming multi-asset “super app” for active traders.
Tradu, part of Stratos Group International just like renowned retail CFD brokerage FXCM, LLC and a subsidiary of Jefferies Financial Group Inc., is set to launch this month for UK residents and in early Q1 2024 for international markets.
Tradu’s crypto flow will be routed through Crossover’s CROSSx ECN
As part of this partnership, Tradu’s cryptocurrency flow will be routed through Crossover’s CROSSx electronic communication network (ECN). CROSSx is designed to offer tailored liquidity, high-speed execution, maximum throughput, and tight spreads, specifically catering to the needs of institutional and intermediary clients. The platform aims to execute spot cryptocurrencies efficiently, aligning with Tradu’s objective to provide institutional pricing to retail traders.
The partnership between Tradu and Crossover is seen as a significant development in the digital asset market, reflecting the rapid maturation of market structure in digital assets. It represents a fusion of traditional finance (TradFi) best practices with modern, 24×7 trading platforms and workflows.
Tradu, headquartered in London, aims to offer comprehensive client support with a global team proficient in over two dozen languages. Stratos, the parent company of Tradu, also operates FXCM, a well-established FX and CFD platform, and plans to offer FXCM services alongside Tradu’s multi-asset platform.

We believe that our distribution, coupled with CROSSx’s technical prowess, creates one of the most compelling digital asset trading offerings on the market.”
