Ik heb hoge verwachtingen over de Q1 resultaten naar aanleiding van de analyst call over q4. Puur op het gebied van Cryptocurrency zouden zij enorme bedragen binnen slepen.
We are also the number one market maker in cryptocurrency ETPs in Europe, active on 15
exchanges globally, providing 24/7 liquidity, as well as being a leading spot OTC liquidity
From a currency commodities and crypto perspective, we are now consistently trading more
than €5 billion a day. We have also upgraded our technology suite and we have expanded our
time zone coverages, as well as our spot metals trading, where we are now among the top
three market makers on major FX ECNs.
Lastly, we will further develop our crypto business by unlocking additional liquidity pools and
maintaining our number one market maker position in crypto ETPs. These growth focus areas
have the ultimate goal of driving structural NTI growth.
So what we’ve seen in the Q4 is there has been an increased interest from
institutional investors in these products (crypto). And also from regulators, who are starting to be more
open to creating regulation around it. So there was a lot of inflow in the ETPs in some of the
funds as well. And this also drove the prices up.
So this trend – hopefully, it will continue, because the more regulated this gets the better as
well. It gets more transparent and fair as well. So these prices – so bitcoin went up from, what
is it, 15 to 30 and now 40. So that shows the momentum that this asset class has.
We are a market maker in all the listings on the regulated exchanges. So in Europe, there are
a lot of listings already and new ones coming up. So we are supporting those on exchange and
off-exchange as well for the professional counterparties that want to trade those. So there’s
good vibe around it. So that’s a good thing to see.
We are very adaptive to new developments around these kind of things. So we’re supporting
that. So we hope that this will continue.
