Reuters explains that ErisX is planning to spot trade in three basic crypto coins such as HTC, ETH and LTC. It plans to future the exchange market the next year already and has applied for a governmental approval.
There is information that Nasdaq made a confirmation about contributing some money to this project but no exact sum was mentioned. Any information from Fidelity is absent.
At the same time, CEO of the exchange platform Thomas Chippas explained why this money is needed. He told about a necessity to find new employees, improving the company infrastructure and security level to be able to trade digital assets on the regulated market.
