New Offering Includes No Trading Fees for Early Access Participants,
Deep, Predictable Liquidity and Superior Price Discovery
NEW YORK, NY — Thursday Aug 19, 2021 – Apifiny, a global digital asset trading network, today announced its VIP Early Access Program for Apifiny HEX, a new class of hybrid digital asset exchange that is designed to combine the best advantages of centralized and decentralized trading into one, more powerful global trading platform. Eligible program participants will receive no-fee trading for life on Apifiny HEX order book trades.* Apifiny Hybrid Exchange is designed to provide professional and retail traders and liquidity providers with deep, predictable global liquidity and superior price discovery from over 25 connected exchanges.
Centralized digital asset exchanges (CEXs) generally have fast trading execution, small spreads, low fees, and deep order book depth. However, CEXs are also more susceptible to security breaches and do not allow traders to have full custody and control of their own digital assets.
Decentralized Exchanges (DEXs) have much better transaction transparency, better security, and allow users to have full control over their assets, including governance capabilities that empower user communities to shape the development and benefits of their platforms. However, DEXs also have slow trading speeds, large slippage, high fees, and insufficient compliance (e.g., KYC onboarding) procedures.
“Apifiny HEX solves the problems of centralized and decentralized exchanges by combining the predictability and power of automated market making with the advantages of centralized trading into one unified, global order book,” said Haohan Xu, chief executive officer of Apifiny. “As we accelerate toward our public offering, Apifiny HEX is an important milestone toward capturing a huge global, digital asset trading market opportunity.”
