Global trading is stuck in the past

Online brokers revolutionised trading by connecting retail traders with the markets. This works through a network of intermediaries, all taking a cut of the pie. Blockchain is now making this model obsolete.

The Problems


With so many intermediaries involved, global trading creates credit and financial risk.


Traditional broker models can have undue influence on both price-making and trade execution.


Global trading is stuck in models that are decades old, resulting in lack of flexibility.


Transferring funds to the broker’s account adds an unnecessary element of risk.

TradeConnect will bring trading to the future

Decades of financial award-winning experience have led to the development of a cutting edge trading network that will change the world of trading forever. Based on the Blockchain, TradeConnect will allow traders to trade any financial asset instantly and without intermediaries.

The TradeConnect solution


TradeConnect connects traders to a global digital trading pit, where the only commission paid is a connection fee, where traders receive rewards in return for adding liquidity in the system.


The innovative technology in TradeConnect will lead to a network with a level of flexibility the markets have never seen before. Digital Personas and unique cutting edge AI are just the beginning.


TradeConnect will allow individuals and institutions to trade directly with one another, taking out intermediares and creating a balanced playing field where players large and small trade as equals.


Thanks to the Blockchain participants will have full access and direct control over their funds and assets. Every contract is verifiable on the network and automatically settles.
