Swiss-based Market Synergy, a new business formed as part of the FXecosystem group, says it is now offering connectivity to cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex.
In addition to providing outsourced connectivity and hosting services to Bitfinex, Market Synergy says it can also manage co-location services for Bitfinex’s institutional clients and offer a FIX feed and ISP link to the digital asset gateway which Bitfinex recently launched in collaboration with Connamara.
“As the demand for cryptocurrency trading gathers momentum, we spotted a gap in the market for an institutional calibre cryptocurrency connectivity offering,” says James Banister, CEO, Market Synergy. “Following over two years of research and planning, we have launched Market Synergy to take us into a new asset class, with the aim of becoming the leading institutional outsourced connectivity provider in the cryptocurrency space.
“We have worked very closely with Bitfinex to evaluate their needs, select the ideal data centre and set up the correct infrastructure to create a bespoke network with connections to their digital asset gateway for professional traders,” he adds. “We are now ready to go live, having invested in and set up our infrastructure in a secure data centre in Switzerland which hosts servers for a number of major financial institutions.”
Paolo Ardoino, Bitfinex CTO, adds, “We are very pleased to collaborate with Market Synergy to facilitate improved access to digital assets via Bitfinex. We are experiencing first hand the immense institutional interest in cryptocurrency trading and we are excited to be able to pioneer its development.”
