Trade futures with your crypto

EMX gives your crypto portfolio an edge. Trade equity, commodity and cryptocurrency futures, all on one powerful trading platform.

Today’s crypto trading exchanges have numerous issues.

Limited

Crypto exchanges don’t offer true futures products, like contracts on oil, stocks, or other commodities. There’s no way to diversify a crypto portfolio with traditional assets without converting to fiat.

Inefficient

Altcoins are spread across multiple exchanges. You have to sign up for several accounts and pay more unwanted fees. This bogs down the trading process, leading to missed opportunities.

Basic

Exchanges lack a robust infrastructure, advanced features, institutional-grade security, and rules in place to prevent market manipulation. Many have poor customer service, and are run by novice traders.

Institutional exchanges are stuck in the past.

Unfair

Exchanges incentivize speed. Only high frequency traders with access to cutting-edge technology get the best prices, leaving everyone else behind.

Slow

Settlement in traditional clearing houses can take days. Depositing and withdrawing funds is cumbersome and just as slow.

Expensive

The costs of trading through intermediaries adds up. Traders pay more when they have to execute against high-frequency participants.

Introducing the EverMarkets Exchange.

EMX is reinventing the market landscape by bringing traditional futures products to crypto traders. By combining decades of industry knowledge with blockchain technology and an innovative market structure, EMX is creating a next-gen crypto-native exchange.

Powerful

Trade derivatives like contracts on crypto and other commodities, to equities and FX, using a customizable, enhanced trading interface. Finally, an institutional-grade platform for crypto traders.

Accessible

Crypto in, crypto out. All trades are made using cryptocurrency, enabled by the EMX Token. EMX is your single point of access for global futures contracts. There is no need to convert to fiat, and funds are instantly accessible.

Efficient

Transactions are cleared and settled in just seconds. Quick API access is available to the EMX API Gateway through REST and WebSockets (with FIX support coming later). EMX lets you act faster and trade more productively.

Fair

EverMarkets is leveling the playing field for all participants. Instead of competing on speed, traders will participate in randomized, periodic auctions, leading to higher liquidity and better price discovery.

Secure

All trades and collateral are stored on the Ethereum blockchain, which provides institutional-level protections. EMX uses cutting-edge security measures to protect your assets and your personal information.

Transparent

EMX will publish all fee schedules on the exchange website. All traders will know which fees they will need to pay and will have greater insight into the cost of each transaction. Also, the auction-based matching engine makes it easier to understand supply and demand and how a batch or orders will cross.

More opportunities, fewer limitations.

Go long or short any contract and diversify your portfolio with a variety of global asset classes, including futures on crypto, stock market indices, single name equities, commodities, and more. All you need is the EMX token and an idea.
