Unified FIX API, aggregated liquidity for all major crypto exchanges, and a standalone professional trading platform.Watch our Video
XTRADE will launch a universal low latency FIX based API connecting to all major crypto exchanges to make it easy for institutions, hedge funds, and algorithmic traders to access all cryptocurrency markets by coding to just one FIX application - in one format - with which they are already intimately familiar.
XTRADE will launch XTRADE Pro in 2018 - a highly robust, multi-exchange standalone trading platform for active traders. The platform will include, among other features, advanced consolidated order books, hotkey order entry, and custom order types, with 24x7 uptime.
XTRADE will aggregate liquidity across exchanges by launching a unified, Single Point of Access. XTRADE SPA will be facilitated via Joint Venture (JV) partnerships with existing exchanges to minimize the regulatory hurdles as XTRADE will function purely as an execution technology provider.

The XTRD utility token will be utilized on the XTRADE network by market participants to pay for execution, VPS, market data, software licensing, credit interest spreads, and other fees. Market participants will be able to purchase XTRD tokens directly from Xtrade’s internal liquidity pool and secondary liquidity sources. The XTRD token will be fully ERC20 compliant to ensure that it functions properly on the Ethereum blockchain, similarly to other ERC20 tokens.
SAFT, or Simple Agreement for Future Tokens, is an agreement being utilized by Xtrade to allow accredited investors and institutions to participate in a future Token Generation Event. It is a token presale open to accredited investors, or those with an annual income of least $200k or net assets of $1M, exclusive of their primary residence.
The SAFT is modeled after the Simple Agreement for Future Equity, or SAFE, which originated out of Y-Combinator, and when used properly is fully compliant with US Securities laws and regulation D. As the SEC recently confirmed that the federal securities laws now apply to token sales per its recent SEC investigative report on DAO Tokens, Xtrade is taking a proactive approach to the XTRD token sale by properly utilizing the SAFT and ensuring that the risks which come with early-stage investment opportunities are made clear to those accredited individuals or institutions that participate.
Xtrade is raising funds via a Token Generation Event in Q1 2018.
Following the SAFT presale, if necessary, Xtrade will conduct a crowd sale of the XTRD token to accredited investors under Reg D and non-US investors under Reg S.
Non-accredited US investors will not be allowed to participate in the Token Generation Event to ensure proactive compliance with current US securities laws and regulations.
65% Balance Sheet for SPA
20% Platform Development and Operations
5% Legal and Compliance
5% Sales and Marketing
5% Acquisition Fund
XTRD Tokens will be generated at a fixed dollar amount per token with a hard cap. Tokens will be created continuously on the token sale generation date and onwards as funds are exchanged for tokens, including the SAFT agreement tokens which will be issued per agreed upon discounts for accredited investors via a whitelisted wallet address system.
Once the hard cap target is reached, no additional XTRD tokens will ever be generated beyond the total pool of created tokens.
