in #originalworks3 years ago (edited)



Since the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, over 4,000 altcoins (alternative coins) have been created, although as of May 2018, only 1,800 cryptocurrency specifications existed. More than 200 exchanges currently exists, with an average volume of over 18 billion US dollars being traded daily.

Therefore, it is appropriate to say that digital assets are experiencing a rapid growth rate when compared to the initial numbers it experienced at its inception, this is why experts believe that by 2033 the total estimated market cap for blockchain may exceed 10 trillion US dollars – that for sure is a whooping sum! Although, the current estimated market cap is over 325 billion US dollars—that is no small amount too..

The Challenges in Crypto Market

Due to the various complexities for the digital asset space, fragmentation of tokens and exchanges is one of its reoccurring feature.

  • Fragmentation of exchanges and the low trading volume when compared to traditional market leads to liquidity and slippage problems. This further leads to high trading cost for traders.
  • In addition, Crypto exchanges are not buoyant enough to accommodate large order volumes, this leads to delays in the execution of trading strategies, and a delay in the cryto market could potentially lead to losses.
  • There are no rebalancing tools available for utilisation, in order to maintain a certain allocation target or monitor capital deployment for a single portfolio in multiple exchanges.
  • Existing exchanges lack the adequate customer support system and risk management capabilities offered by traditional market trading platforms, and this is imperial to market participants.
  • Fragmentation in exchanges also creates complications in compliance procedures. This have resulted in significant risk of errors as various market participants lean on varying individual solutions such as Excel spreadsheets, python scripts, multiple web interfaces and others which is unable to track their positions efficiently.
  • Current exchange fragmentation make it difficult for institutional entities to keep and provide detailed audit records for internal use, to external users and for regulatory purposes.
  • It is also impossible for investors in institutional entities to monitor all digital investments in a consolidated system.
