EMX is the Future of Derivatives Trading

Access global markets from a single platform. The EverMarkets Exchange (EMX) provides a secure, fair, and powerful way to trade cryptocurrency.

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.

Unsophisticated

Crypto futures trading is basic at best - exchanges lack a robust infrastructure, advanced features, institutional-grade security, and rules in place to prevent market manipulation.

Traditional futures 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

Centralized clearinghouses lag transactions down. Settlement takes days. Withdrawing funds can take even longer.

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 hybrid 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 the EMX Token, enabling a single point of access for global futures contracts. There is no need to convert to fiat, and funds are instantly accessible.

Efficient

Smart contracts eliminate the pain points of trading through completely centralized exchanges. Transactions are cleared and settled in just seconds. The EMX Token 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 never takes custody of any assets. This minimizes the risk of theft from hacks, and downtime.

Transparent

The integrity of all transactions is ensured by recording them on the blockchain. This creates an immutable, publicly traceable record-giving all participants real-time insight into every aspect of a transaction.

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.
