In an industry-first Ethfinex and Rigoblock collaborate to provide access to Ethereum-based fund management tools
Lugano, Switzerland – December 13, 2018 – Ethfinex, a hybrid trading platform based on Ethereum technology, today announces the complete integration of Rigoblock asset management tools. The industry-first partnership enables all Ethfinex customers to deploy, manage and trade decentralized token pools in a reinvention of the traditional asset trading model.
The Rigoblock asset management tools are now available on Ethfinex Trustless – a high-liquidity trading portal built on Ethereum, developed by the Ethfinex team. Ethfinex Trustless adopts an innovative approach to decentralized exchange by combining an off-chain order book with on-chain settlement to ensure a secure and transparent trading experience.
Rigoblock is a blockchain protocol that makes it possible for anyone to set up and run a decentralized token pool. Offering modular and abstract software, Rigoblock enables any developer to personalise the blockchain protocol and build their own applications. Coupled with their proof-of-performance algorithm which rewards operators based on the assets and performance of the pools they are running, Rigoblock turns the traditional model of asset management on its head, eliminating management fees and performance fees from the funds, and providing transparency and an equality in participation.
