  • Fragmentation across crypto trading platforms and exchanges creates challenges for clients who cannot get a unified look at their assets and liabilities, Samir Ghosh, FalconX’s head of product, told CoinDesk.

    FalconX 360 gives clients “turnkey access to 94% of global spot and derivatives liquidity through one account and one platform,” Ghosh said.

    Additional components of the new platform include access pricing from more than 70 liquidity venues with built-in smart order routing, treasury management, risk management and operations. Additionally, FalconX said its new "Orderbook" module allows investors to trade directly with FalconX, while "simultaneously benefiting from the best prices across global liquidity venues," according to a statement.

    In June, FalconX raised $150 million in a Series D financing round at an $8 billion valuation. The funding round followed FalconX’s registration as a U.S. swap dealer, which gives FalconX the chance to join the ranks of major Wall Street banks in offering the ability for customers to trade derivatives.
