Omega One Trading Platform Taps Jose Marques As Advisor
, a cryptocurrency trading platform expected to launch in 2018, has appointed Jose Marques, former head of trading at Bridgewater Associates, to its advisory board.
The Omega One platform will provide traders, investors and institutions with a decentralized and automated trade execution system that intelligently implements their trades across the world’s crypto exchanges, shielding them from counter-party risk and reducing the transaction cost of trades.
Prior to his time at Bridgewater, the largest hedge fund in the world, Marques served as the global head of electronic trading at Deutsche Bank and held senior roles in electronic trading at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse.
“The maturation of cryptocurrencies as an asset class is being constrained due to problems with liquidity, security and compliance,” said Marques. “Omega One is strongly positioned to solve these problems by upgrading the market infrastructure needed to remove these barriers, which will ultimately enable blockchain technology to reach its full potential of creating a more inclusive, efficient and empowering financial system. Omega One’s team understands the generational pains of market maturity and how to build the tools to enable and to create the security for the consumer and the institution.”
Alan Keegan, CEO of Omega One, said the company was excited to add Marques. “Jose has been at the forefront of electronic trading, having led the efforts of the world’s largest financial institutions. We believe the team we are assembling is poised to facilitate the birth of the financial system of the future.”
Omega One’s public pre-sale of its Omega Tokens on the Ethereum blockchain is currently open.
