Bitstamp chooses Irisium’s Market Monitoring Platform

Bitstamp chooses Irisium’s application to enhance customer protection and market integrity

NEW YORK , Nov. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Irisium Ltd, a leading provider of market monitoring and analytics software for exchanges, regulators, buy-side and sell-side firms, and Bitstamp, the largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume in Europe, today announced a partnership to implement the Irisium monitoring platform on Bitstamp’s exchange. Irisium’s state of the art holistic monitoring technology will complement Bitstamp’s commitment to providing a safe and reliable marketplace.

Bitstamp has been a pioneer in crypto security and regulation since its inception in 2011. The exchange places an emphasis on customer protection through KYC/AML procedures, advanced security software and protocols. Its positive stance towards self-regulation paved the way for Bitstamp’s Luxembourg entity (Bitstamp Europe SA) to become the first crypto exchange with a payment institution license in the EU. It is among the four cryptocurrency exchanges that have provided pricing data for the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s (CME) cryptocurrency indices since 2016.

Bitstamp’s vision is to bridge the gap between traditional finance and crypto through a mature approach to the cryptocurrency space. “We are committed to crypto in the long-term,” said CEO and co-founder Nejc Kodrič. “Our desire is to provide a fair and orderly market which reflects accurate supply and demand. In order for the industry to mature, effective market monitoring is crucial. We are cooperating closely with Irisium and will leverage their significant experience to provide a more robust and transparent trading venue for our customers.”

Bitstamp will use Irisium’s platform to monitor market activity. Alastair Goodwin, CEO of Irisium Ltd, said: “Bitstamp’s pro-active adoption of Irisium and close partnership with us demonstrates their desire to increase transparency, integrity and confidence in the cryptocurrency market. Integrating Irisium’s innovative technology into Bitstamp’s platform will support compliant and efficient operations. Enhanced customer protection and market integrity will help drive adoption and market liquidity.”

Ensuring that market data is both legitimate and transparent is an important step in crypto’s maturation, as it will make the industry a better fit for traditional investors and institutions.
