AlphaPoint, a blockchain company focused on enabling institutions to launch and operate digital asset exchanges, today announced that it now supports XTZ, the native asset of the Tezos blockchain.
This integration enables more than 40 AlphaPoint software-powered exchanges to support XTZ for deposits, withdrawals, custody, and trading with fiat and cryptocurrency pairings.
Several exchanges in AlphaPoint’s network successfully piloted support for XTZ, and already list it for trading. Additionally, AlphaPoint will be delivering sub-token support to power STO exchanges focused on Tezos based security token offerings as a follow-on project.
“Our goal is to enable our clients to provide access to digital assets globally and we are enthusiastic to support XTZ. AlphaPoint believes in Tezos as a long-term solution for digital transactions including smart contracts and STOs, and we are also excited by the many projects happening in the Tezos ecosystem.”
