Concordex Bringing Institutional-Grade Derivatives to Concordium Blockchain With $1.7 Million Seed Round

Decentralized exchanges have seen a rise in interest after a series of high-profile centralized trading platforms in the crypto space collapsed throughout 2022.

Concordex will offer users an institutional-grade investment platform that bridges the gap between TradFi (traditional finance) and DeFi (decentralized finance) through an extensive suite of products and services, offering true margin and derivatives trading.

Concordium – the foundation for institutional decentralized finance

Concordium is a unique public layer one blockchain with an embedded identity verification layer, providing a secure way for users and enterprises across the world to trade and remain compliant while ensuring the privacy crypto users have grown accustomed to.

Concordex will utilize the regulatory-ready Concordium ecosystem to offer one of the first regulation-friendly DeFi platforms – a radical step forward in the evolution of DeFi.

James Davies, chief product officer of Concordex, said,

'Concordex will bring true margin trading to DeFi through a suite of margin and prime brokerage tools, bridging the gap between TradFi (traditional finance) and decentralized finance.

The platform will offer first-of-its-kind on-chain leverage trading that will eventually become a full on-chain derivatives market that is fully powered by Concordium.'

Additionally, the platform will offer advanced liquidity management, such as adaptable liquidity pools which will allow liquidity providers to optimize capital deployment and maximize returns over time.

By utilizing Concordium's finality and shielding, liquidity pools on the platform will be protected from front running. It will also bring best-in-class AMM (automated market making) to the Concordium ecosystem, allowing projects to launch their own tokens in the ecosystem with ease.

Lars Seier Christensen, founder of Seier Capital, said,

'With the increasing lack of trust in unregulated centralized exchanges, decentralized exchanges are the logical next step in the evolution of crypto and blockchain technology. Concordium offers a unique value proposition, and Concordex is well-positioned to steer the ecosystem forward.'

Lone Fønss Schrøder, chief executive officer of Concordium, said,

'We are excited to see the launch of the first dedicated DEX on Concordium. Concordex will help further our mission to make the Concordium ecosystem more accessible for individual and institutional users while allowing them to maintain control and custody of their assets.'
