B2B digital asset infrastructure provider Zero Hash has appointed FX industry veteran William Klippel as their new Vertical Head of Investment Platforms.

Mr. Klippel is a highly experienced FX industry professional, having spent 15 years at StoneX’s associated brands including GAIN Capital, GTX, and FOREX.com. Most recently, he spent nearly three years at trading automation and analysis platform Capitalise.ai, where he worked as its head of sales.

Klippel kicked off his career back in 2004 as a financial representative at Mutual Financial Network. He also co-founded a startup called DTK Studios in January 2020.

“We’re thrilled to have Will on board,” said Edward Woodford, CEO of Zero Hash. “His extensive experience within the brokerage industry will continue to strengthen Zero Hash’s position as the default infrastructure provider for investment platforms.”

William Klippel, Vertical Head of Investment Platforms at Zero Hash said, “Zero Hash has built a crypto-as-a-service platform already trusted by leading investment platforms. I’m excited to be joining the team to build on the great progress they have made in the sector and to drive its growth globally.”

Zero Hash is a subsidiary of Seed CX and has registered the unit as a Money Services Business and FX Dealer with FinCEN. Moreover, Zero Hash is a registered Money Transmitter in over 45 US states.

Zero Hash enables businesses to embed digital assets within their product offering with low technical lift and no regulatory burden.

The Zero Hash settlement service currently supports spot settlement of fiat and cryptocurrencies, as well as for repo, forwards, and other product types. The product was already implemented into the trade cycle of traditional brokers, single-dealer platforms, FX ECNs, and other institutional trading venues including tastyworks (now owned by IG Capital), Banxa, Wirex, MoneyLion and DraftKings.

Zero Hash lending infrastructure also enables neo-banks, broker-dealers, payment groups, and non-financial consumer brands to automate collateral management and loan settlement, thereby helping manage the counterparty risk and simplifying the acceptance of multiple forms of collateral.
