Meet one of our borrowers, Folkvang!

Mike von Rossum, founder of Folkvang will be joining the webinar. He will be introducing his company to our community and sharing what it means to be a borrower on Clearpool.

Folkvang is a native crypto trading firm. With proprietary technology, they trade on all major crypto markets around the clock. Since they began trading, they’ve grown the team from two people in Asia in 2018 to a global team of five core contributors. In March 2020, we became more official and took on investment from SBF to seriously scale up our capital base and trading operations. We have been a part of global on-screen crypto flows ever since, trading billions of dollars every day on all the major coins and exchanges.

Trading Strategy
As a quantitative trading firm, we employ a variety of trading strategies, ranging anywhere from degen yield farming to low latency HFT arbitrage on the biggest markets. We are best known for the latter, where our market-neutral HFT strategies make money from market-making, arbitrage, funding, and basis. On a weekly basis, we have had zero drawdowns since our start in March 2019.

Why borrow on Clearpool?
Our main HFT trading activities have no market sensitivity and limited price exposure. However, they are very capital intensive, and we need to have money ready for deployment on each and every venue. We will use the capital as collateral on exchanges to power our capital-hungry custom proprietary trading systems.
