XTRD Product and Partnership Update
The easiest way to describe this is “work as usual”.
Our team is working to deliver highly-demanded Binance connector followed by Bittrex and OKEx. We discovered that we can easily handle all instruments traded on Binance in terms of managing orders books in a real-time and keeping historical market data. This means that instead of the original idea of providing only ETH, BTC vs fiat pairs for trading, XTRD will give access to the vast majority of tokens.
We are continuing to explore different partnerships that might bring more value to crypto community. One of them is possible co-operation with Blockchain Terminal. It’s still a bit premature to articulate about it’s exact nature but both companies are seeing a lot of synergies and ways how we can work together.
XTRD is looking to extend existing FIX API by providing crypto-related real-time news sourced from one of the industry-leaders — NewsEdge.
FIX protocol has special message times designated exactly for news delivery so, with market data, execution, and news coming from a single provider — XTRD might become a one-stop shop for graphical-rich trading platforms.
