Today, Oasis Pro Markets (“Oasis Pro”), the first U.S. regulated multi-asset ATS, and Anchorage, the first nationally chartered digital asset bank, announce a strategic partnership, launching the Oasis Pro Markets Alternative Trading System (“OATSPRO”). Oasis Pro will use Anchorage for on-chain custody and settlement for its ATS, a FINRA and SEC-regulated trading system expected to go live in the fourth quarter of 2021.

OATSPRO enables institutions and other subscribers to transact with digital cash such as stablecoins or use fiat cash in exchange for digital assets through a state-of-the-art order matching engine. Oasis Pro selected Anchorage to facilitate on-chain custody and settlement for both digital securities and digital cash that are part of the ATS, bringing a streamlined process for transacting in private markets. Together, Anchorage and Oasis Pro are bringing a smoother, one-stop trading experience to the market.

“Anchorage has been a true partner in helping us realize our goal of streamlining the trading experience,” said Pat LaVecchia, CEO of Oasis Pro Markets, “Anchorage’s superior settlement and custody technologies stand out in the market, as they provide the necessary controls for selecting digital assets. This reaffirms our commitment to remain agile to technological and regulatory developments in order to grow the ecosystem and create a dynamic marketplace.”

From the beginning, Anchorage has been committed to advancing participation in the digital asset space through close cooperation with regulators, and OATSPRO sets a strong regulatory framework for advanced trading.

OATSPRO has room to grow as both a primary and secondary market for trading digital asset securities, including equity, fixed-income, and asset-backed securities. OATSPRO will first launch on the Ethereum blockchain, and will support other blockchain protocols in the future.
