Hamilton, Bermuda, 13th October: Bittrex Global (Bermuda) Ltd. has announced the launch of leveraged tokens under the supervision of the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA). Leveraged tokens as a product are aimed at institutional investors and experienced traders looking to increase their exposure to cryptocurrency markets.  

As a product, Leveraged Tokens offer increased exposure to the potential upside for Bitcoin, Ethereum and Cardano traders as well as an insurance hedge should market movements contradict their analysis. Given the inherently volatile nature of cryptocurrency markets, leveraged tokens are expected to play an increasingly important role in the development of this nascent sector within the broader Financial Services industry.

Stephen Stonberg, CFO/COO, Bittrex Global: For some time institutional investors and professional traders have had to confront a combination of negative bond yields and highly valued equities buoyed by government spending. Investment in cryptocurrencies has enormous potential to offer strong future returns, the Bermuda Monetary Authority has provided a secure environment for Bittrex Global to cater to this important class of investor.  

The launch coincides with Bermuda’s Virtual Tech Summit 2020, which the Bittrex Global team will be actively participating in. Following the recent period of growth in the DeFi asset class, Leveraged Tokens reflect the increasingly mature nature of investors and traders seeking more complex tools in order to navigate these markets. Bittrex Global aims to serve all investors whether they are retail or institutional with as broad a suite of products possible within the highest levels of compliance.
