Our long-term vision is that all markets will eventually trade on the digital asset rails, and we’re excited to build for the future today.”

Johnny Lyu, KuCoin CEO, noted that with the development and growth of the crypto industry, more and more traditional financial institutions have begun to enter the market. He added:

“In light of the growing participation of institutions in the cryptocurrency market, the KuCoin exchange is focused on supporting projects and companies that simplify their market entry and provide the necessary technologies for streamlining trading operations. As Talos develops software that enhances market participants’ connectivity to liquidity destinations, trade execution tools, analytics and other services, the KuCoin exchange values its latest partnership and is confident that cooperation will benefit both parties and the market at large.”
