Woorton provides liquidity on and off exchanges to a wide range of professional: Crypto Hedge Funds, Family Offices, Payment providers, Retail brokers etc.

For a year, we have been doing voice trading with a MVP that proved us professional investors were looking for players like Woorton to source liquidity in crypto.

Woorton is about to be 1-year old. Before its anniversary, he turned live on a product that fits institutional investors requirements to trade an asset. Here is a little heads up on where do we stand and how we will pursue our development to become a leading liquidity provider in the crypto space.

Market-Making-as-a-Service

In an ecosystem where the price of the asset represents not only the value of its underlying, but also the access to the related service, liquidity is paramount.

Token issuers lend an inventory of tokens to Woorton to delegate the liquidity management on exchanges.

We have been active on centralized exchanges for 12 months. We are now expanding to decentralized exchanges, starting by being a Reserve Manager on Kyber Network and therefore bridging the gap between centralized & decentralized exchanges.

Joining the Melon Council

Very few projects are delivering on time in the crypto space. Melonport is one of them. The Melon protocol is the first of its kind autonomous system, designed specifically for the purposes of crypto asset management. The Melon Council is the body responsible for looking after the Melon protocol and its users.

Woorton is proud to join the Melon Council to participate to the sustainable development of a protocol dedicated to asset management.
