Cryptocurrencies have been part of the forex trading scene for a few years already, mainly in the form of Bitcoin CFDs, but very recently they seem to be taking over the industry in the form of new offerings, platforms and services.
How should the established brokerages and startup ventures react to this drastic shift? How do you discern what technology is really transformative and what is just plain hype? At the upcoming Finance Magnates London Summit 2017, to be held at Old Billingsgate on November 15, a panel of industry leaders will help brokers make sense of the changes.
Leading up to the event we will be interviewing the panel members to get their personal takes on the matter. giving you a chance to delve deeper into their thinking process.
The first panellist is Matthew Miller, COO of Shift Forex, who advises businesses on expanding into cryptocurrency trading.
We discussed how to find liquidity providers, which trading platforms are most suited for cryptocurrency trading. We asked him if this is the trend that could push MT4 from dominance.
The panel will be composed of five leaders from the cryptocurrency, financial trading and blockchain technology space:
- Richard Olsen, CEO of Lykke
- Yonni Assia, CEO of eToro
- Matthew Miller, COO of Shift Forex
- Rosario Ingargiola, CEO of OTCXN
- Carolina May, Strategic Advisor, NewsBTC
