October 03, 2022 - Online trading bank Swissquote is launching its own centralised trading platform for cryptocurrencies, which it says will provide a more competitive and secure trading environment.

Marc Bürki, CEO of Swissquote, commented on the launch of Swissquote's new crypto exchange, "Swissquote is at the forefront of innovation and was one of the first institutions in Europe with a banking license to offer cryptocurrency trading. The launch of our own crypto exchange is an important step forward in offering our customers deeper liquidity and faster execution. In terms of services for institutional clients, SQX also represents an increase in competitiveness when it comes to offering trading and custody services to other banks and brokers.”

SQX will aggregate crypto price liquidity from a network of Crypto exchanges and will make trading available 24/7.
