US Institutional Crypto Exchange Seed CX Expands to Asia With New Partnership

Cointelegraph By Adrian Zmudzinski

United States-based institutional cryptocurrency exchange Seed CX has partnered with Singapore-based fintech company Hydra X to offer its trading service in Asia. Seed CX announced the development in a press release published on March 21.

Per the announcement, Seed CX will join the list of supported digital asset trading venues available on the Sigma trading platform offered by Hydra X, which is currently in public beta. The partnership will also reportedly allow institutional Sigma users to access Seed CX’s fiat-crypto gateway.

Seed CX is a licensed digital asset exchange for both spot market and U.S. Commodities and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)-regulated derivatives. As Cointelegraph reported at the time, Seed CX closed a $15 million funding round led by alternative investment firm Bain Capital in September last year.

More recently, in January, the exchange launched an on-chain wallet solution and then also spot trading, with both solutions limited to institutional clients.

An analysis released earlier this week by crypto index fund provider Bitwise Asset Management argued that 95 percent of volume on unregulated exchanges appears to be fake or non-economic in nature.
