CRYEX has filed an application with the Swedish Finansinspektionen (SFSA) to become a regulated clearing organisation and create a member-only marketplace with clearing and settlement for FX and digital currencies.

Cryex is managed by a highly experienced team of banking and exchange executives with a record across FX and capital markets, technology, regulatory, risk and security management.                               
Simon Nathanson, Chairman of Cryex Clearing AB and one of Sweden's most experienced exchange executives, says: “Cryex has a unique model to clearing and settlement and has all the necessary components in place; financial-grade architecture and technology partners, a seasoned team and a number of high profile strategic investors from the financial sector.”

Created to provide a trusted gateway between traditional regulated financial industry and digital currencies, CRYEX aim is for regulated market participants to trade a suite of spot and eventually derivative products in a highly secure and regulated environment.

CRYEX has received USD10 million financial funding from key venture capital firms White Star Capital, Northzone and a number of financial industry leaders.

Eric Martineau-Fortin, Managing Partner at White Star Capital, says: “We are delighted to be involved in delivering a truly innovative solution where Blockchain technology meets tier one exchange and clearing technology in a regulated environment, finally attracting financial institutions into the digital currencies ecosystem.”

Pär-Jörgen Pärson from Northzone, says: “CRYEX will transform crypto currencies from small, unconnected niche markets into a full monetary ecosystem and settlement network.”

The CRYEX trading and clearing platforms are underpinned by established and proven financial industry technology.
