EMX is a platform aimed at reinventing the world’s existing derivatives markets. We aim to revolutionize the entire trading experience by making it less expensive, easier, and fairer.
We intend to dramatically lower the cost of trading by leveraging cryptocurrency and efficient design. Our platform transforms the traditional roles of the broker, the exchange, and the clearing house into a more streamlined process. Building a standardized and modern futures
derivatives market should reduce the cost of managing risk and make the marking, clearing, and settlement processes more efficient.
Our market design also improves the price discovery process and minimizes market impact costs. By utilizing frequent batch call auctions in lieu of a central limit order book, we de-emphasize the importance of speed and reassert competition based on price. The recent rise of alternative liquidity pools in equities has shown that there is significant demand for fresh ideas in execution and the sourcing of liquidity; we aim to translate many of these innovations to the derivatives arena.
Finally, a non-monopolized derivatives market will give unencumbered and democratized access to a wide variety of futures products. Traders will no longer need to access multiple exchanges for their commodity derivatives trading, as EMX would list a very broad range of contracts on a
single platform. Price discrimination by other exchanges amongst different types of market participants would not exist on EMX as traders willall be subject to the same fee structures and have access to the same data feeds. The efficiencies gained by a newly-architected platform could also allow for the creation and listing of new futures products, spurring innovation in the industry and giving market participants new tools for managing risk.
