Crypto Market Making

Liquidity provision services for ICO's and cryptocurrency exchanges

Liquidity problem for ICO's

Many ICO companies raised a substantial amount of capital during the past 2 years. Unfortunately, many of them faced the following challenges:

  • Lack of liquidity: investors and project founders could not monetize their investment due to a lack of liquidity in their token
  • Low trading volume: traders and investors are not incentivized to trade the token because of high transaction costs due to market impact
  • Price manipulation: low liquidity makes it easier for bad actors to manipulate the price of a token
  • Low interest in the ICO project: difficulty in liquidating positions makes investors less likely to invest in an ICO project after launch
  • Difficulty listing on major crypto exchanges: lack of market makers and committed liquidity in a token makes it more difficult to list on major crypto exchanges, giving less visibility and interest in an ICO project

Market Making Program for ICO's

By adopting a market maker who provides liquidity on pre-agreed terms, ICO companies can potentially expect the following benefits:

  • Higher liquidity: by having enough liquidity available in the token, investors and founders can invest or liquidate their positions more easily
  • Higher trading volume: higher liquidity potentially attracts more interest and trading in the token due to lower transaction costs and market impact
  • Lower probability of price manipulation: higher liquidity makes it more difficult to manipulate the price of a token since more capital is needed to move prices
  • Higher interest in the ICO project: more people trading in the token and possible listing on bigger exchanges create more interest and discussion around the ICO project
  • Easier listing on major crypto exchanges: more reputable crypto exchanges are more likely to list a token on their platform knowing that there is a market maker committed in providing liquidity 24/7

Market Making Program for Crypto Exchanges

We can support both established and new crypto exchanges to help them achieve the following potential benefits:

  • Higher trading volume: traders are more likely to trade a cryptocurrency if there is enough liquidity available because of lower market impact and execution costs
  • Lower probability of price manipulation: higher liquidity makes it more difficult to manipulate the price of a token since more capital is needed to move prices
  • Higher interest in the crypto exchange: usually liquidity attracts more liquidity, and at the same time more interest from traders and associated revenues for the exchange
