Canadian exchange operator launches cryptocurrency brokerage service

by hannah

Shorcan Digital Currency Network (Shorcan DCN), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ‎Canada-based stock exchange operator TMX Group, has partnered with ‎Toronto-based Paycase to set up a cryptocurrency brokerage service that ‎will focus initially on Bitcoin and Ether.‎

The Toronto Stock Exchange owner said the new unit will also work ‎with BMO Financial Group to handle its banking services as part of the initiative’s ‎payment and settlement infrastructure.‎

The product will be rolled out to clients in a multi-phased approach, beginning ‎in Q2 2018.‎

The Canadian exchange operator’s subsidiary will leverage the expertise ‎of Shorcan Brokers, which TMX acquired in 2006, to run its Bitcoin and ‎Ether-focused brokerage service. TMX’s Shorcan Brokers is a dedicated ‎unit to provide investors in the Canadian financial industry with a brokerage ‎service.‎

Together with Paycase’s data aggregation platform, Shorcan ‎DCN will create cryptocurrency benchmarks based ‎on consolidated data from top digital currencies venues as well ‎as over-the-counter brokered volumes.‎

This combined offering will secure the required liquidity and resources to build out the technology needed to create these ongoing data indices at any time, particularly with the new ‎product focusing on the largest cryptocurrencies. . Accordingly, the permanent volume of orders on the market will ensure decent demand and supply levels.

That said, Shorcan DCN is providing banks, hedge funds, brokerage companies, stock exchanges, ‎financial institutions and professional investors with the ability to execute ‎orders at the best prices, better manage their trading business and reduce costs through their new brokerage service.

Founded in 2014, Paycase is a provider of decentralized financial services, most widely ‎known for its mobile remittance platform, which enables people to transfer money ‎around the world with fees that are 60% lower than those charged by ‎traditional remittance companies. Paycase has recently applied to join the Ontario ‎Securities Commission’s FinTech advisory committee in a bid to facilitate the launch of its regulated ‎Canadian Bitcoin exchange.

Commenting on the news, Peter Conroy, President of Shorcan, said: “We are excited to enter in to this agreement with Paycase, an industry leader with an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. We look forward to putting in the necessary collaborative work in the days ahead as we strive to make Shorcan DCN a lasting success.”

John Lee, Managing Director of Enterprise Innovation & Product Development at TMX Group added: “Shorcan DCN represents a significant step forward in the execution of TMX Group’s digital strategy. As new technologies continue to reshape the global financial industry, we continue to explore new ways to evolve our business to address client needs in both traditional and non-traditional markets.”

Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking
what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?

I just launched my site –also built in wordpress
like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
