Libra Crypto Office Update – April 2018

At Libra we’re a “do then tell” company, so while you might not have heard much, we’ve been busy doing!

Since we announced the launch of Libra Crypto Office and our Series A funding round at Consensus Invest in November, we’ve gone live with lots of new customers, continued to build out the platform and have been very busy growing the team!

Expanded Customer Support

We are happy to report that in addition to supporting Exchanges and Market Makers, we have expanded support to include the following customer segments:

  • Fund Administrators – live with multiple global fund admins
  • Fund Managers – directly support hedge funds utilizing multiple trading strategies
  • OTC Trading Firms – one of the largest, most well known, OTC desks in the world
  • Proprietary Trading Firms – small and large Prop desks trading coins and futures

Suffice it to say, we’re excited about having customers in each of these segments and actively looking forward to supporting new customer segments, including Protocol Providers, Custodians, Miners and Lenders.

New Product Features

We also release new production features and improvements every two weeks. For our customers this creates a consistent flow of new connectivity options, platform and processing improvements, and enhanced reporting capabilities. Some of our most recent enhancements include:

  • API support for six more exchanges including: Binance, bitFlyer, Bitstamp, Coincheck, GDAX and HitBTC
  • Updated enhanced trade and transfer detail records with direct access to underlying raw exchange data
  • Data downloads directly from the web interface to support audit information requests

Further, our roadmap is packed with many more features requested by customers. Have a suggestion? Send it to us at [email protected] – otherwise, stay tuned for some significant new improvements and expanded connectivity announcements over the coming weeks.

Libra is Growing

As the platform and number of customers has grown — so has the Libra team. We currently total ~20 FTE’s from some of the most respected companies in the world including Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, KCG, IHS Markit and Charles River to name a few.

We strongly believe that success starts with creating a team with diverse backgrounds and experiences, and we are extremely proud of our team so far — and we’re still growing. Know a QA engineer, senior software developer or quantitative analyst interested in crypto? Send them our way!

In Summary

Libra builds institutional-grade middle and back office software and data services to support the growth of the Crypto asset class.

Our commitment to our customers is that we will do things the right way, the first time around. We will make the investments, both in terms of capital and people, to support our customers and the industry at large. And, we will continue our communications strategy of “do then tell” to help interested parties separate signal from noise.
