Rebranded TrueDigital Partners for 'Imminent' Launch of Bitcoin Derivatives

Institutional digital assets platform Tassat, formerly known as trueDigital, has teamed up with trading software provider AlgoTrader in the run up to its launch of  derivatives.

The deal will see Tassat provided access to AlgoTrader’s institutional clients for the planned derivatives instruments. Meanwhile, those clients will benefit from being able to incorporate the products in their trading strategies, according to an announcement from AlgoTrader on Thursday.

The first of these derivatives will be “physically-deliverable, margined swaps available for institutional investors, brokers and other eligible contract participants.” While a firm date wasn’t provided, Tassat said in a rebranding announcement on Sept. 3 that the launch is “imminent.”

Michel Finzi, chief commercial officer at Tassat, commented on the new relationship, saying:

“We pick our partners thoughtfully and focus on those who align with our philosophy to serve the institutional marketplace. AlgoTrader has a unique service delivery model, offers clients more control and flexibility and most importantly, has a singular mission to create a high-impact trading experience.”

New York-based Tassat first revealed it would offer derivatives to U.S. investors in July, and it’s now it’s waiting for approval from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission before it can move to a launch. The firm has previously said it will add instruments for other cryptocurrencies later.

It will face competition in the U.S. from both ICE’s Bakkt, which has physically delivered futures coming on Sept. 23, and Seed CX, which, too, is awaiting regulator approval for its bitcoin forwards. There’s also LedgerX, which launched a bitcoin derivatives offering in October 2017.

Tassat also provides a regulated exchange platform and OTC reference rates for and ether. It notably built a blockchain payments system for the -friendly Signature Bank, launched last December.
