CryptoTrading Technologies, a peripheral of Voyager Digital Holdings Inc., has launched a new service platform that squarely focuses on the institutional market. The company recently announced the recruitment of Glenn Barber as their new Chief Institutional Officer.
The launch, and Barber’s recruitment’s timing, is partially attributed to the immediate and rising institutional demand experienced by Voyager. This demand rose following the announcement of the company’s intentions to unveil its first offering. This offering is basically a commission-free mobile exchange platform for retail capitalists. It implements exceptional execution utilizing smart order routing innovation.
Voyager CEO’s Sentiments
Stephen Ehrlich, the CEO, says, “Expanding our offering and leveraging our infrastructure to include the institutional community was always a part of our long-term strategic roadmap. Based on the sheer number of conversations since we announced our retail offering; it’s clear that there is a void in the marketplace and an immediate desire by institutions to participate in and offer their clients access to this emerging asset class without the significant resources, costs, and time that would be required to develop an in-house solution.”
He further indicated that institutional investors would be able to directly access the organization’s infrastructure by writing to its APIs. As such, they will be able to offer cryptocurrency trading services to their customers while perpetuating the existing user interfaces.
