Delivering faster and more secure trade execution and settlement flows

NEW YORK, June 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fireblocks (www.fireblocks.com), an institutional platform for storing, transferring, and issuing digital assets, announced today it will be supporting BlockQuake, a regulatory-driven digital asset exchange upon its upcoming launch. BlockQuake will utilize Fireblocks' unique MPC-based wallet infrastructure to advance its exchange operations increasing the speed at which customers can access and withdraw funds. BlockQuake will also join the Fireblocks Network, in order to connect with some of the largest financial institutions and exchanges.


"We are proud to partner with Fireblocks as a solution to the increasing demands for wallet security," says Antonio Brasse, CEO, and Co-Founder of BlockQuake. "Fireblocks was created by some of the best technologists that we have encountered in the cryptocurrency space. Like BlockQuake, they also strive for regulatory compliance.

Fireblocks also aligns with BlockQuake on its focus on regulatory compliance, performance, and security. Its addition to the BlockQuake Exchange will bring traders a highly trusted and secure trading platform that is more equipped to handle peak trading volume.

Upon launch, BlockQuake's centralized exchange plans to provide traders with six fiat on-ramps, seven cryptocurrencies, and seven stable coins. With the goal of providing traders with the greatest number of options on a single platform, it plans to continuously onboard additional fiats, cryptocurrencies, and other digital assets.

The BlockQuake Exchange will allow traders from over 140 countries to deposit funds via their  credit/debit card and feature a trading fee of .2% for both makers-takers and no fees for withdrawals. It will also increase accessibility to retail and institutional traders through accepting corporate, retirement, and trust accounts. Towards being an industry-standard in global compliance, BlockQuake has partnered with qualified custodian Prime Trust and applied for a New York State BitLicense, currently pending approval.
