Avelacom adds connection to institutional crypto exchange Seed CX
May 23, 2019
Avelacom, a high-performance, global connectivity and IT infrastructure provider for the financial services industry, today announced a partnership with Seed CX, a digital asset exchange built particularly for institutional investors.
Institutional customers of Avelacom including proprietary trading firms and hedge funds will now be able to access Seed CX’s real-time market data and order-routing solutions. Avelacom’s IT infrastructure is located in Equinix NY4/NY5, providing clients with high-quality access to Seed CX’s digital asset liquidity points globally.
Through its subsidiaries, Seed CX offers a licensed exchange for institutional trading and settlement of spot digital asset products, and plans to offer a market for CFTC-regulated digital asset derivatives.
“We began working in cryptocurrency in 2018 to respond to global institutional requirements. What we found were massive tech issues, such as low uptime, slow matching engines, insufficient support and platforms that are not friendly for latency and jitter sensitive applications. Seed CX is a true benchmark in the digital assets space. We are delighted to support this healthy ecosystem by providing our clients with low latency access to the digital asset space to facilitate trading at the highest standards.”
“We are very excited to be working with Avelacom. This partnership will not only expand Seed CX’s global presence but also allow clients already leveraging Avelacom’s high-performance network to connect to our markets. It is our view that this and similar partnerships will aid in the adoption of digital assets by institutional investors.”
