About us

The way financial assets can be created, held and traded has changed.

Driven primarily by Blockchain technology, new efficient ways of funding and investing in businesses have emerged, creating new digital assets such as crypto-currencies and tokens.

Existing crypto trading venues have primarily targeted early adopters and the retail space. The traditional institutional investment community is not being catered for, as this new emerging world lacks the systems, controls and processes that they expect.

Archax is a new institutional-grade exchange for trading crypto/digital assets, built for institutions and run in a regulated manner with them in mind. Founded by experts from the financial markets and backed by an accomplished advisory board, Archax offers a credible bridge between the new Blockchain-centric ‘tech’ community and the traditional investment space.

The Archax team is used to working in a highly regulated world and has a deep understanding of this new ‘tech’ landscape too – and a vision of how to adopt it, evolve it and open up crypto/digital assets to institutions in a transparent manner.

An exchange designed specifically for institutions to trade in crypto assets and built using existing, proven, resilient, scalable, high-performance exchange infrastructure, hosted in top-tier datacentre space, and integrated into the existing institutional trading workflow.

Archax is based in London and the exchange is operated under the regulatory and best-practice principles that institutions expect, sitting alongside existing crypto trading venues and their communities, bringing in new interest, new liquidity and new investment from the institutional space.
