Coinbase is doing everything they can to take over the transition to cryptocurrencies in America – consistently developing projects that bring the company closer to the standard of existing financial institutions. Their new Institutional Suite takes it up another level.
The launch is a group services and software to make it easy enough for any interested investment funds to get into Bitcoin, no matter what their experience level. The competition for this type of software and these services is getting tight.
“At Coinbase, we welcome these developments as they help accelerate the world’s adoption of cryptocurrency by bringing new capital, greater awareness, and additional infrastructure to the space. This movement requires institutional grade products and services, something Coinbase has been developing with leading institutions and which we are proud to formally launch today.”
This piece was created in partnership with an SEC-regulated broker-dealer to provide the very best crypto-storage solutions. They are storing $20 Billion in cryptocurrencies.
This project works to solve the problems of liquidity in cryptocurrencies that result in the highly volatile market. It is not fully fledged out yet. Low latency performance, on-premise datacenter colocation services, institutional connectivity and access, and settlement and clearing services will be added in 2018.
This is essentially an upgrade to their current GDAX exchange platform. They will offer lending and margin financing products to qualified clients, high touch/low touch execution services like over-the-counter (OTC) trading and algorithmic orders, and new market data and research products. They are also planning for multi-user permissions and whitelisted withdrawal addresses.
