LDJ Capital founder and Chairman David Drake has joined the board of advisors the world’s first hybrid cryptocurrency exchange.
“The Qurrex hybrid cryptocurrency exchange is the product of an amalgam of the best of what blockchain technology and financial technology can offer,” Drake said. “Only with a strong team and robust system can this be made possible.”
“The expertise, passion, and integrity of the Qurrex team drew me to this project;t and I am excited to work with them in creating this unique solution that will benefit the crypto community globally,” Drake announced.
Qurrex combines the architecture of stock exchanges with a decentralized exchange
Qurrex’s blockchain-based platform is designed to combine the high-volume architecture of traditional stock exchanges with a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange.
The target market for Qurrex’s services will be professional traders and institutional investors that need greater speeds and volumes of trading. Qurrex is achieving some of those goals; its matching engine was operating at a capacity of two million transactions a second on 7 February 2018. Qurrex’s goal is to build a matching engine with a capacity of 4.5 million transactions a second.
Successful load testing would enable Qurrex to fix one of the major flaws of present-generation blockchain-exchanges. The current crypto-assets exchanges operate at a much lower speed and far smaller capacity than centralized exchanges like the LSE and CME.
Testing of Qurrex’s exchange to determine an optimum level of performance is ongoing. A rollout of the exchange and a next-generation trading terminal should occur later this year.
