AI-trading Company Rise pens deal with Galaxy Digital

German A.I. crypto trading company signs contract just prior to the public sale of their S.T.O.

Press Release — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — 
November 8th, 2018. Munich, GERMANY

Rise Wealth Technologies GmbH has completed the onboarding process with Wall Street’s biggest player in the crypto-space, Galaxy Digital.

The partnership includes access to Galaxy Digital’s OTC trading capabilities and enables Rise to more quickly scale its automated trading operations, overcoming potential liquidity constraints for larger block trades.

Rise evolved over the last 6 years from a technology provider for asset managers to a crypto-focused asset manager which offers dividends from trading profits to investors holding Rise’s RSE tokens. A new type of financial instrument developed by Rise called a Crypto Traded Fund allows token holders to participate in a mix of traditional and crypto asset classes. The partnership announcement comes days before Rise’s Security Token Offering (STO) which is scheduled to begin later in November.

Cryptocurrency markets lack the liquidity of traditional markets which can hamper the effectiveness of certain trading strategies. Rise’s partnership with Galaxy Digital will enable Rise to optimize trading execution. The deal also includes a framework for cooperation on a custody solution for Rise’s assets under management.

Rise CEO, Stefan Tittel, sees the deal with Galaxy Digital as an important part of Rise’s goal to democratize access to financial markets. “Rise has the potential to give retail investors access to trading technology that has traditionally been reserved for Wall Street’s elite.” According to Tittel, “The partnership with Galaxy Digital is another step towards leveling the competition in financial markets for Rise token holders.”

Access to Galaxy Digital’s OTC trading desk will improve scalability of Rise’s trading systems as an additional source of liquidity.
