Before Pipefold

Capital Intensive

Excess collateral locked up at multiple exchanges makes resources inefficient.

Multiple Trading Venues

Missed trading & arbitrage opportunities due to delays in cross venue capital reallocation.

Co-mingling Of Funds

Margin extended on unheld assets introduces liquidity risk and counterparty risk.

Conflict Of Interest

Current providers play multiple roles in the trade stack and can trade against their clients.

Excess Risk Burden

Major counterparty risk (second send problem) & exchange hacking risk.

Cryptocurrency has a problem with 'inefficient resource allocation'

Closing The Gap

Closing The Gap

81% of crypto hedge funds are using 3rd party custody providers.

Pipefold provides the framework to not only close that gap, but also allow assets held in third party custody platforms to be actively traded without subjecting them to the risks of being held on an exchange.

How Does Pipefold Work

Simplifying The Institutional Trading Process
How Does Pipefold Work

Connect Accounts

Using the Pipefold platform, traders connect their custodial accounts and Exchange APIs to view their entire trading ecosystem and begin allocating funds from their custodial accounts to exchanges.


Proof Of Reserve

Traders combine assets from their custody accounts to create Proof of Reserve (PoR). These funds are locked at the custodian, providing collateral for trading activity.


Pledge As Contract

Traders pledge amounts from the PoR to exchanges of their choice. They can change these allocations with a few clicks at any time in the Pipefold platform.


Trade Assets On Venue

Traders execute their orders business as usual, using the balance populated in their account on the exchange from the Pledge as Contract. Funds are still secure at the custodian.


Post Trade Settlement

When an outstanding balance is created, the trader is prompted to settle the account. Funds can be drawn/deposited directly from/to the PoR or settled in another way by trader.
