We’re thrilled to announce an exciting new product for our institutional clients: BlockFi Prime, an integrated trading platform for digital assets. BlockFi Prime adds greater transparency, a full suite of capabilities, and improved ease-of-use for all institutional trading needs.
BlockFi Prime is the newest addition to our comprehensive Prime Services offering, an integrated platform where institutional investors can easily access, trade, and borrow digital assets. Our bundled solution provides investors with the financing and trading tools they need to meet their investment objectives and gain both physical or synthetic exposure to cryptocurrency markets.
Financial institutions already know that BlockFi is one of the best places to get customizable lending and OTC trading services for cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, and US dollars, powered by our retail cryptocurrency balance, one of the largest and fastest-growing digital asset pools on the planet.
Now, with the introduction of BlockFi Prime, hedge funds, market makers, family offices, and a variety of other institutional investors will receive an unparalleled degree of control, insight, and convenience in managing their organization’s crypto assets.
“Developing and launching BlockFi Prime is a natural next step for us as we continue to respond to the evolution of digital assets and institutional investors adjust their trading strategies,” said David Olsson, Vice President and Global Head of Institutional Distribution at BlockFi. “Just in the last year, we have added lending, trade execution, private client services and new products in order to help our clients meet their investment goals, and BlockFi Prime gathers all of those resources in one tool.”
So what’s unique about BlockFi Prime? For one, it provides a portal into your institutional account, increasing visibility by displaying all the transactions you’ve made, open loans, margin balances, term sheets, and margin call percentages. Trades made on BlockFi Prime are automated and don’t have to go through a trading desk, making the process quicker and more efficient than ever before. Plus, you can benefit from:
Real-time streaming quotes
Trade up to your settlement limit via a 24-hour settlement cycle
View your trade and loan history with access to downloadable term sheets and outstanding balances
Easy-to-use trading UI, which features a built-in exchange calculator
Flexible pricing model that allows an organization to select features that best fit its needs, including TWAPs and spot
Integrated API that lets you fold all these capabilities into your own system for high-frequency trades or programmatic traders
In addition to these existing features, we are developing enhancements to the tool that include margin trading, derivatives, and automated margin lending, which will be rolled out in the coming months.
You can still access 24/7 voice or chat support with our trading team around the world, or use Telegram, Symphony, Slack, and Bloomberg to connect with us any time.
