Caspian partners with B2C2 in major move for crypto OTC market

Institutions can access Caspian’s full stack crypto trading platform and ecosystem to complement B2C2’s existing liquidity provisions

San Francisco – 2nd October 2018 – Caspian, the full-stack crypto trading and risk management platform for professional traders and investors, has partnered with B2C2, the cryptocurrency market maker and liquidity provider, in a move that makes life much easier for larger investors wanting to increase their exposure to cryptocurrency markets.

“B2C2 is one of the largest crypto market makers and it is therefore great to have them as a partner. Our goal is to build an ecosystem of partners that can help sophisticated traders to work effectively and efficiently, so we are very happy to have B2C2 adding to our offer,” says Robert Dykes, CEO of Caspian.

The partnership is significant because of the liquidity that these kind of investors need if they are to move further into cryptocurrency markets. While Caspian provides a suite of tools designed to make accessing and trading these different markets much more easy, B2C2 is experienced in providing the OTC liquidity that this type of investor requires. Users of the Caspian platform will be able to “point and click” trade liquidity streamed by B2C2 via API connectivity directly into Caspian.

“We’re delighted to be joining Caspian as they seek to increase institutional involvement in crypto trading. Many retail brokerage firms already trust us to provide liquidity for their crypto trades and we believe the multi-functional Caspian platform will appeal to these clients too,” says Max Boonen, Director and Co-Founder of B2C2.

While the OTC liquidity nature of the partnership is unique, B2C2 is the latest in a long list of companies that have joined the Caspian ecosystem. As well as a recent partnership with Coinbase, the trading platform is actively partnering with wallet providers, exchanges, custody services and more to attract institutional investors to their platform and to the crypto industry in general.

Caspian’s crypto trading platform has been specifically designed to meet the needs of larger investors who are implementing a diverse strategy that currently requires them to execute trades and maintain target allocations across many exchanges. The fragmentation of crypto-exchanges creates liquidity and slippage issues, as well as a challenging audit and compliance environment.

B2C2 was founded in 2015 by Director and Co-Founder Max Boonen, after he left his job as a fixed-income trader at Goldman Sachs. It works with hedge funds, asset managers, brokers and family offices to facilitate large OTC crypto trades between big investors. B2C2 provides 24/7/365 liquidity for trades from  at least 0.01BTC, and executes hundreds of trades per second.
