LXDX announces backing by Dymon Asia Venture Capital Fund LP to make LXDX’s cryptocurrency trading platform more widely available. LXDX offers full-spectrum technology services for cryptocurrency exchanges, including software that powers both public retail exchanges and private exchanges for institutional block trading. Dymon Asia Ventures is the venture capital arm of Dymon Asia Capital, an alternative investment manager headquartered in Singapore with approximately US$4.9 billion (including notional assets and committed capital) under management as of June 29, 2018. LXDX, in working with Dymon Asia Ventures, is able to broaden its reach and strengthen its technology offerings.
With the help of Dymon Asia Ventures, LXDX is making the cryptocurrency space more accessible to investment banks, hedge funds and others accustomed to the reliability and efficiency of conventional markets. The high-speed performance, unified security operations, and data infrastructure built into the LXDX exchange platform enables trading venues to provide a superior trading environment for their investors.
CEO Joshua Greenwald, formerly of SpaceX and founder of Greenlight Trading, a high-frequency trading outfit based in Chicago, describes the company’s origins: “We built LXDX in response to the aversion conventional finance institutions have had to the cryptocurrency space. Joining forces with Dymon allows our team, with decades of trading experience, to bring the qualities of traditional lit and dark exchanges to these new markets.”

In addition to Dymon Asia Ventures, advisors include cryptocurrency investor and author Arianna Simpson, Justin Litchfield of Prochain Capital, and Alex Disney, formerly of Cumberland Mining.

We are thrilled to be supporting LXDX in their vision and execution of a more efficient trading system.”
