Builds on relationship established in December with FTX US for crypto spot, futures and options markets
NEW YORK / NASSAU, Bahamas, April 26, 2022 – Eventus, a leading global provider of multi-asset class trade surveillance and market risk solutions, and FTX.COM (“FTX”), a leading global cryptocurrency exchange, announced today that FTX has contracted with Eventus to deploy the firm’s Validus platform for trade surveillance and risk monitoring on all FTX markets throughout the globe.
The firms made the announcement at the start of the FTX Crypto Bahamas conference, featuring collaboration and networking among leading players in the cryptocurrency and traditional finance industry. The move represents a substantial expansion of the relationship established late last year, when FTX US chose to deploy Validus for trade surveillance and risk monitoring on the FTX US spot market and on FTX US Derivatives, its licensed cryptocurrency futures and options exchange and clearinghouse.
Eventus CEO Travis Schwab said: “We’re incredibly honored that FTX.COM has placed its full confidence in our platform after experiencing first-hand its power and versatility for meeting compliance and regulatory goals. The exchange has made abundantly clear the importance of a fulsome trade surveillance program to its overall mission, and we’re particularly pleased that FTX leaders recognize how Validus can meet its changing needs as the company continues to grow at such a stunning pace and establish new regulated markets in jurisdictions throughout the world.”
Mike Castiglione, Eventus Director of Regulatory Affairs, Digital Assets, will speak on the U.S. Crypto Regulation panel of the Crypto Bahamas Conference on April 28
