Avelacom, a provider of connectivity and IT infrastructure, has added Gemini Trust Company, a digital asset exchange and custodian, to its list of cryptocurrency exchange technology vendors in Equinix’s NY5 data centre.
With this new partnership, Avelacom’s clients, including those that are already Gemini clients, can connect directly to the exchange’s infrastructure to access market data and order routing via FIX protocol.
Meanwhile, Gemini clients will get additional connectivity options via Avelacom’s network presence that includes destinations such as New York, Dublin, Frankfurt, Zurich, San Jose, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Seoul.
“Both companies’ clients can access the ideal environment for implementing diverse strategies requiring institutional grade infrastructure. Round-trip latency from Tokyo’s markets to Gemini is just 136ms,” says Avelacom in a release issued today.
The firm’s CEO, Aleksey Larichev, adds: “Gemini provides fundamental components to a robust, mature, and well-functioning cryptocurrency market, including infrastructure for trading and custody. We believe this partnership will be beneficial for all involved as we match our tech capabilities to serve high-end trading firms across the US, Europe and Asia.”
