The International Digital Assets Platform (IDAP) is the first self-contained ecosystem for the cryptocurrencies derivatives trading market. Contained within this ecosystem are the IDAP Exchange, the IDAP Desktop App with advanced trading tools and most importantly, crypto derivatives instruments by IDAP, for trading and investment. By bringing together individuals and institutions in need of risk management or with an eye at profit via risk acceptance, our goal is to become the most diverse crypto derivatives marketplace for buyers and sellers.
The volatility of the current crypto market has made it imperative that the issue of risk management and hedging options for crypto assets be addressed without delay. Traders being free to take long and short positions and to bet in both the bull and bear run of the market, thus being able to diversify and optimise their portfolio performance, are all made possible by the introduction of a highly diverse and wide range of multiple crypto based derivatives products, including Futures, Spreads, Swaps, Options and Crypto Indices. Moreover, the trading of these above mentioned financial instruments deepens the liquidity of the market, in effect stabilising the price points of the underlying crypto assets. This is what the IDAP ecosystem for crypto derivatives market trading has exclusively been built to achieve.
Our team of highly motivated professionals, possessing a robust academic background coupled with years of trading experience on world’s best exchanges like CME and ICE, identified the three pillars of success upon which the IDAP ecosystem will stand tall. First and foremost, is the extensive array of IDAP product offerings that include but are not limited to, crypto based outright futures, calendar spreads, butterfly spreads, American options, perpetual swaps, crypto indices and ETFs, that enable traders to hedge, speculate and invest, opening up a new realm of market possibilities. Secondly, is the IDAP exchange, a trading platform with low latency, high availability, housing an Institutional Grade Matching Engine with implied orders system, advanced OMS & SOR capabilities and FIX 4.2/4.4 protocol for HFTs, designed to be fault-tolerant and swift in its operations. Lastly, are IDAP’s advanced data visualisation and analytics tools, created for trader assistance in charting intraday, and historic time series data to gain insight into market trends, facilitating immediate action and thus forgoing the need for end-of-day reports.
The IDAP ecosystem is thereby going to be the comprehensive solution for traders. Harnessing all the advantages of the traditional trading market and distilling them to suit the cryptocurrency landscape, the IDAP ecosystem will offer a boost to the crypto market in the right direction. Our platform will redefine how exchanges operate and by attracting more traders via our various product offerings, we will expand the pool of participants fostering greater market liquidity and thereby contributing to its overall growth.
