Trading Technologies International Inc. develops and delivers professional trading software platforms for proprietary traders, brokers, money managers, CTAs, hedge funds, and commercial hedgers and risk managers worldwide, and, moreover, offers access to exchanges and liquidity platforms.

On January 25 the company announced partnership with San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase. The companies plan to trade futures and spot Bitcoin side-by-side starting from March 1 of 2018.

Chief executive of Trading Technologies International stated that having Bitcoin futures and spot Bitcoin on one platform should lead to a significant growth in the muted futures market as well as in spot Bitcoin, and it is better if traders see Bitcoin on a familiar platform like TT.

Previously, we have reported that Coinbase stopped accepting deposits from Nationwide bank, and that businessman and Bitcoin enthusiast Albert Renshaw discovered evidence of insider trading at Coinbase on the day of listing Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

CEO, tZero

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
