Integral launched full crypto solution for banks, brokers, and funds
Earlier this year, Integral launched Integral Digital: a full extension of its trading and client distribution platform, traditionally catered to FX, to support cryptocurrencies and fiat-backed stablecoins.
Integral Digital was developed in conjunction with Mint Exchange Inc. and supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Stellar, CoDEX, and 100+ ERC-20 tokens. The platform caters to both regulated and unregulated digital asset businesses globally.
Services include aggregation and connectivity to over 30 crypto liquidity providers, desktop and mobile client trading, risk management, and hot and cold wallet custody solutions.
Available on a monthly subscription basis, the platform can easily integrate with in-house and third-party providers via FIX and Rest APIs.
Integral Digital also offers a fully integrated Prime Brokerage solution providing direct market access to multiple exchanges and market makers via a single account. This maximizes netting across multiple venues and reduces collateral requirements.
