Gold-i, a trading systems integration specialist for the financial services industry, has strengthened its cryptocurrency offering through a partnership with the U.K.-based market maker B2C2. Gold-i has integrated its Crypto Switch with B2C2 to enable brokers to hedge their clients’ trades on cryptocurrency CFDs.
Crypto Switch acts as a bridge between various technologies used in Forex and cryptocurrency industries by allowing brokers access to a number of global cryptocurrency exchanges and liquidity providers. The product has allowed Gold-i to introduce a large-scale cryptocurrency offering through the MT4 and MT5 brokers.
The Gold-i Crypto Switch to B2C2 offers access to a deep pool of cryptocurrencies, including CFDs on Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash versus USD and JPY. It also offers clients the ability to take positions in the underlying OTC markets with a greater focus on Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Ethereum Classic, and Zcash versus multiple fiat currencies.

Deploying the solution, brokers can add a diverse range of cryptocurrencies to their system and distribute them to MT4, MT5 or any other trading platform. Gold-i Crypto Switch provides brokers’ clients with the ability to trade the digital asset class through the underlying coins plus the CFDs instruments. It also enables brokers to sell their crypto liquidity via industry standard protocols such as FIX.
B2C2 is one of the largest OTC brokers/market makers in the crypto space and also provides related liquidity services. Founded in 2015 and headquartered in London, the privately held company advertises its offering as a solution that bridges the gap between traditional financial and cryptocurrency markets.
