Gold-i, B2C2 Partner To Offer Crypto Contracts Trading

Announcements, News | May 2, 2018 By:

Trading systems integration specialist Gold-i has teamed with cryptocurrency market maker B2C2 to enable brokers to hedge their ‎clients’ trades on cryptocurrency contracts for difference (CFD).

Founded in 2008, Gold-i claims to provide retail brokers with the same execution and risk management tools as institutional brokers at a fraction of the cost. It has developed and owns the IP for an evolving suite of products, many of which are developed in response to specific customer needs. The company invests heavily in research and development (R&D) in order to continue to introduce ‘industry first’ products, all currently aimed at helping brokers using MT4/MT5 to trade more profitably and manage their risk more effectively.

Founded in 2015, B2C2 is a UK-based cryptocurrency market maker that provides 24/7 liquidity to the world’s largest brokerage firms, exchanges, banks and cryptocurrency funds in key international time zones. They provide liquidity in bitcoin (BTC), ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ripple (XRP), Ethereum Classic (ETC) and ZCash (ZEC). They also offer regulated entities in select jurisdictions the ability to enter CFDs.

B2C2 has integrated Gold-i’s cryptocurrency solution, called Crypto Switch, to allow brokers to maximize opportunities from the increasing demand for crypto trading. The solution 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. Crypto Switch has allowed Gold-i to introduce a large-scale ‎cryptocurrency offering through the MT4 and MT5 brokers.‎

The integration offers access to a deep pool of ‎cryptocurrencies, including CFDs on bitcoin, ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin ‎Cash versus USD and JPY. It also offers access to physical over-thecounter (OTC) trading, focusing on bitcoin, ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Ethereum Classic and Zcash versus multiple deliverable currencies.

“Our partnership with B2C2 is an exciting development given that demand for cryptocurrency CFD trading is unprecedented and continues to grow unabated,” said Tom Higgins, CEO of Gold-i. “B2C2 is a high quality cryptocurrency CFD provider and we are delighted to be working in partnership with them.”

“We have received a lot of interest for MetaTrader integration these past several months,” said Emmanuel Alamu, Vice President of B2C2. “We’re very pleased the Gold-i Crypto Switch fulfils this need and much more. With Gold-i’s integration to us now live, this opens up opportunities for brokers worldwide to seamlessly enhance their offering with a cryptocurrency CFD product.”
