We’re Launching TIO Markets

trade.io to acquire FCA Regulated FX Firm

As trade.io goes from strength to strength, we’re happy to announce a strategic move to bolster our regulatory position and presence in Europe. We have entered into an agreement to acquire FCA-regulated Primus Capital Markets UK Ltd, which currently holds an IFPRU 125K Matched Principal License.

Primus Capital Markets will be rebranded TIO Markets and will become the first company to offer FX trading using crypto assets as base currency for deposits and withdrawals. Initially, clients will be able to deposit and withdraw using Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and of course TIOx (our own native utility token) to access the FX platform. Those using TIOx will be offered substantial commission discounts, tighter spreads and other incentives.

Further details of TIO Markets, the FX platform and offering will be shared closer to launch, which we’re expecting during Q4, 2018.

Liquidity Pool grows stronger

As we continue to expand trade.io’s services, products and client-base, our industry leading liquidity pool becomes an ever more attractive offering for our clients. A portion of revenue from TIO Markets will be allocated to the liquidity pool, adding yet another source to the facility that lets clients participate in the success of the group.
