ErisX Advances Strategic Relationship with Fidelity to Expand Access to Digital Assets
CHICAGO, IL and NEW YORK, NY, April 9, 2020 — ErisX is expanding safe and regulated access to digital assets through familiar investing tools, by collaborating with Fidelity Digital Asset Services, LLC (Fidelity Digital AssetsSM). Fidelity Digital AssetsSM can now access the ErisX spot market, increasing the breadth of accessible liquidity available to Fidelity Digital Assets’ customers.

“We believe in the crypto ethos of accessibility to all on equal terms and about leveling the playing field for everyone,” said Thomas Chippas, CEO of ErisX. “Our time-tested and proven central limit order book ensures that the best price on the market is available to everyone. We are thrilled to have Fidelity Digital Assets’ support for our transparent market model.”

Coupled with their technical aptitude, accessible order sizes, and a robust regulatory framework, ErisX is an attractive solution to securely access digital assets.”
