BitIRA is thrilled to announce a new agreement with Galaxy Digital, one of the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange partners with access to more than 100 cryptocurrencies. Founded in 2018 at the forefront of the cryptocurrency boom, Galaxy provides its clients with access to seamless 24/7 liquidity, world-class security, and the stability of an established public company – all from a foundation built on the company’s commitment to seeing cryptocurrency thrive.
Galaxy is the vision of Founder and CEO Mike Novogratz, now a billionaire who worked for 11 years at Goldman Sachs and a former member of the New York Federal Reserve’s Investment Advisory Committee on Financial Markets. In other words, Novogratz is a reputable figure in the financial world, and one who has long embraced cryptocurrency as the future of money.
“Bitcoin is built on an amazing technology. There’s a limited supply of it, people are trusting it,” Novogratz said back in 2017. “Remember, this whole revolution came out of a breakdown in trust, it came out of the ’08 financial crisis where people say, ‘We no longer trust financial institutions, we no longer trust governments.’”
From its start, Galaxy has been based on a simple goal: to “bring institutions into the blockchain revolution.“ For the past five years, Galaxy has worked to onboard institutions and individuals all over the world into cryptocurrency, facilitating trading at the same time as handling $3.9 billion in asset management and offering a slew of similar well-regarded services.
“Our extensive network of exchanges and counterparties give us an edge in price discovery,” says Jason Urban, head of trading for Galaxy. “Coupled with our deep liquidity and risk tolerance, we’re the partner of choice for both crypto-natives and new institutional entrants to the space.”
There’s a lot at stake in the growing cryptocurrency industry, which Novogratz is well-aware of. Creating and fostering a trading environment that supports and reinforces investors instead of scaring them away is therefore of vital importance, and it’s what he’s dedicated Galaxy’s ongoing operations to. Every client is treated with a “white-glove” level of service to ensure their complete satisfaction.
To that end, Galaxy has a dedicated team conducting “best-in-class” research in pursuit of new technologies for securing transactions and facilitating trading. By rigorously testing and upgrading its underlying systems, the team helps the platform maintain its status as an ironclad access point at all times. This makes them a great fit for the BitIRA team as we only partner with the best. Our commitment to excellence when choosing partners helps ensure the safety and high level of support our customers expect.
“The blockchain revolution is still in its infancy. As the world of digital finance continues to evolve, Galaxy will evolve alongside it,” Novogratz says.
At BitIRA, we’re glad Galaxy is here for the blockchain revolution, and we’re even more glad to have them as our exchange partner. From a shared foundation of stability, the heights that cryptocurrency can climb become all the greater.
