"Blockchain technology has transformed the way value is exchanged in TradFi. As a crypto market maker, we aim to connect assets efficiently and transparently with our proprietary technology to provide liquidity across trading venues, DeFi protocols, and NFT marketplaces," said Hao Wang, CEO of CyberX. "We have been developing liquidity solutions for the crypto industry since 2016. Our infrastructure is robust and has been proven to be successful in coping with a variety of long-tail risks under extreme market conditions. The current funding will accelerate our expansion plan for an enhanced liquidity network and continuously adapt our system to new developments in DeFi and NFT sectors."

Over the years, CyberX has built an extensive crypto liquidity network with a US$400 million daily trading volume and network spanning more than 30 venues and 5,000 tokens with 10,000 trading pairs. In the past year, CyberX's trading volume has grown close to 10x, with DeFi coverage taking up at least 40% of total trading activities. It is currently a leading provider in a suite of liquidity solutions, such as algorithmic market making in spot and derivatives markets across perpetuals, futures options, structured products, OTC services and DeFi protocols. CyberX aims to connect the world’s digital assets through their trading infrastructure and continually innovate crypto-native technologies and products to empower partners in the future of Web 3.0.

“DeFi is making its way into a wide variety of simple and complex financial transactions, and we believe it will continue to grow at a tremendous pace," added Hao Wang. “While the market is still recovering from the aftermath of the FTX collapse, lessons learned will continue to propel the industry in the right direction."
