Rick Steves

XBTO ProTrading will include the XBTO Trader UI and a ProTrading access account integrated with Stablehouse, all hosted within the XBTO-Stablehouse Custody platform. This offering marks a well-rounded solution for users concerned with both execution and asset protection.

XBTO, a leading platform specializing in digital assets management and investment solutions, has announced the early-access launch of its ProTrading platform, with general availability set for October 25th.

The announcement marks a significant milestone for the company following its pending acquisition of Stablehouse in August 2023.

XBTO ProTrading for trade execution and asset protection

The platform is intended to serve financial institutions and high-net-worth individuals, offering an institutional-grade trading environment that addresses several bottlenecks in the digital asset trading space. XBTO has built ProTrading to streamline execution and focus on robust asset protection, thereby bridging the gap between traditional finance and decentralized finance (DeFi).

Two of the most pressing issues faced by both individual and institutional investors—inefficient trade execution and varying levels of risk—are directly addressed by XBTO ProTrading. The platform leverages Talos technology for its user interface and features a Smart Order Router along with a comprehensive counterparty network to tackle the inefficiencies in trade execution.

Javier Rodriguez-Alarcon, Chief Commercial Officer of XBTO, commented on the platform’s focus on asset security. “We believe in giving access to professional-grade trading services to institutional clients to facilitate an effective adoption of digital assets. With XBTO ProTrading, we’re making it possible for qualified investors, regardless of their scale, to experience secure, efficient, and high-touch trading that was previously accessible only to a segment of experts. Our priority is to offer confidence and safety while facilitating a seamless trading and custody experience.”

ProTrading features OTC Trading Desk for customized order execution

XBTO ProTrading will include the XBTO Trader UI and a ProTrading access account integrated with Stablehouse, all hosted within the XBTO-Stablehouse Custody platform. This offering marks a well-rounded solution for users concerned with both execution and asset protection.

Moreover, the platform provides a high-touch service environment, including features like a dedicated Relationship Manager and an Over-The-Counter (OTC) Trading Desk for customized order execution.

“XBTO ProTrading offers a robust alternative to the current digital asset trading landscape, providing a holistic platform that enhances the trading experience and offers a unique value proposition for both qualified and institutional investors,” concluded Rodriguez-Alarcon. “Investors are encouraged to explore and register for the XBTO Pro Trading early access program, embracing a new era of secure, efficient, and high-touch digital asset trading and custody.”

The acquired crypto custodian Stablehouse is licensed as a digital asset business by the Bermuda Monetary Authority. This regulatory oversight adds an additional layer of credibility and assurance to the services offered by XBTO ProTrading.

With the acquisition, the broad range of digital asset services provided by XBTO will now include everything from custody and institutional trading, to asset management, and designated market making.

Originally incubated by XBTO Group and funded by several industry-leading venture capital funds in 2019, Stablehouse will continue to be led by chief executive Philippe Bekhazi, who will also assume the role of CEO of XBTO Global.

The Stablehouse custody infrastructure incorporates omnibus custody accounts with integrated trading. It also offers segregated vaults where assets are verifiable on the blockchain at all times, and is built upon a warm storage solution where the keys are protected across distributed environments. The platform ensures an end-to-end bankruptcy remote state between custody and trading.
