May 11, 2022 - FX and precious metals ECN Spotex LLC, and Etana Custody, a Chartered Trust company, announced that they have executed the first fully funded and physically settled cryptocurrency trades between two Etana Custody held clients.
Etana’s custody and trade support solutions for fiat and digital assets provide clients with flexibility and peace of mind. As an independent, regulated custodian, Etana allows institutions to buy and sell fiat and digital assets directly from custody, eliminating risky transfers and inefficient transactions.
Spotex’s FIX compliant technology infrastructure paves the way for traditional financial participants to cross over into decentralised financial markets. Given the need for a reliable 24/7 execution network, adding digital assets to Spotex's product base was a logical progression.
Brandon Russell, CEO of Etana Custody, commented, “Partnering with Spotex’s established ECN and existing Institutional client base has enabled Etana Custody to broaden its Institutional client reach. As Institutional adoption of digital assets continues to grow, having a reliable partner in Spotex that provides Institutional grade pre- and post-trade execution services is vital to our growth in this sector.”
“We are excited to have entered the digital space with an accredited, regulated custodian like Etana Custody,” said John Miesner, CEO of Spotex LLC. “Whether digital or fiat, Institutional clients have expressed significant concern regarding the safety of their assets. Etana fulfills those needs for financial institutions entering the digital marketplace, from the custody of assets to buying power to physical settlement.”
