Crossover Markets partners with Hidden Road on CROSSx spot crypto trading
Institutional crypto solutions provider Crossover Markets has announced a new partnership with Hidden Road, the global credit network for institutions. Through this partnership, Hidden Road clients will have streamlined access to CROSSx, Crossover’s execution-only crypto electronic communication network (ECN) for the purposes of executing spot cryptocurrency transactions.
Crossover was started by former FXCM/Jefferies prime brokerage heads Brandon Mulvihill and Anthony Mazzarese as was exclusively reported here at FNG last year. The company and CROSSx are backed by a number of leading players in the FX and CFDs brokerage trading world including Exness, GMO and Pepperstone.
Crossover said it aims to avoid conflicts of interest by decoupling trade execution from custody and brokerage, giving institutions the ability to freely choose their own credit counterparties. Hidden Road is the first partner onboarded and certified with CROSSx to provide prime brokerage services for spot cryptocurrency transactions as institutional adoption of digital assets continues to grow.
Brandon Mulvihill, Co-Founder and CEO of Crossover said:
“In the non-fungible world of cryptocurrency platforms, Hidden Road has widened trading capacity for institutions by bringing to market fungibility. We believe this significant removal of operational friction from the ecosystem will materially increase trading volumes and decrease the costs of trading. In this environment, only the truly elite trading technologies will win, so this collaboration is naturally synergistic for Crossover and our flagship product, CROSSx.”
Commenting on the partnership, Hidden Road’s Global Head of Business Development Michael Higgins said,
“Crossover shares Hidden Road’s desire to institutionalize digital asset market structure by removing conflicts of interest, helping to bring transparency and trust back into the ecosystem. Their unbundled approach to execution fits well with Hidden Road’s partner- and technology-agnostic philosophy, and we are excited to add them to the credit network.”
This partnership comes at a time of momentum for Crossover, which recently announced the launch of CROSSx and the firm’s seed investment round.
