PRESS RELEASE. SEYCHELLES, 15 November 2021 – CoinFLEX, leading crypto exchange and yield platform, has partnered with Copper.co, a global digital asset custodian and trading solutions provider by integrating with their ClearLoop instant settlement trading network.
The partnership expands CoinFLEX’s crypto yield products to more institutional investors globally, starting with flexUSD, the world’s first interest-earning stablecoin. This partnership will help accelerate flexUSD to a US$1 billion market cap by Q1 2022. flexUSD is currently paying 16% APY and has distributed $11 million in interest to holders over the past 12 months.
The partnership will enable Copper’s 300+ institutional asset managers to trade flexUSD on CoinFLEX while securely storing their assets offline and off the exchange. The integration with ClearLoop adds an extra layer of regulatory assurance for institutional investors, while providing more crypto trading options to Copper’s clients. ClearLoop connects exchanges like CoinFlex to traders and custodians – enabling one, secure trading loop, with instant settlement. Investors can settle digital currency transactions off-exchange – eliminating the need to deposit and withdraw assets from an exchange in real-time, securely maximizing capital efficiency.
“We are excited for this partnership with CoinFLEX, and for our client base to trade and earn from a crypto yield offering such as flexUSD,” said Dmitry Tokarev, Founder and CEO, Copper.co. “This directly aligns with our commitment to ensure that institutional investors are offered a wide range of quality crypto products and can trade efficiently and securely on the Copper network.”
