FTX.US President: We Uphold Sanctions

Cryptocurrency exchange FTX and its U.S. operation announced the launch of a new unit in a push to gain institutional clients and has hired ex-Coinbase Global Inc. executive Gustavo Miguel for the effort. 

While FTX has served large investors through its over-the-counter desk, the newly-created FTX Access will aim to be a one-stop shop, initially equipped with advisory, trade execution and analytical tools. It will also facilitate access to make venture investments alongside with FTX. It is looking to launch crypto-linked exchange traded products, a structure popular in Europe for investors who can’t hold digital coins directly.
