Apifiny has hired ex-Goldman Sachs Jason Jiang as chief technology officer as the global digital asset trading and mining network prepares for its public offering.
The industry veteran has designed and built professional trading solutions for many years, including ultra-low latency trading and risk management systems and co-location, exposure to the full technology stack from hardware, networking and full software development life cycle (SDLC) to automated trading controls.
The new Apifiny CTO will be the technical lead at the firm as it develops its digital asset trading platform for professional traders across a wide range of exchanges and across the globe to maximize global liquidity, best prices, and profits.
Jiang joins Apifiny from Goldman Sachs, where he was Vice President and led technical development efforts within the company’s Global Markets Division, overseeing Quantitative Trading, Electronic Market Development, and Custom Algo Research groups.
He also played a leading role at Blackrock, where he was a vice president and software development manager for the Financial Modeling group. There, he designed and developed BlackRock’s Fixed Income Analytics System (ANSERTM) from scratch.
Haohan Xu, chief executive officer of Apifiny, said: “Jason brings a wealth of financial services experience to Apifiny and is ideally positioned to strengthen our solutions and market competitiveness as we look to transform and unify the global crypto market. We are uniquely positioned to become the de-facto global crypto marketplace for trading professionals, connecting all of the world’s exchanges via one, unified interface.”
Jason Jiang, CTO of Apifiny, commented: “Right now the crypto market is highly fragmented, consisting of many trading ‘lakes’ but no canals connecting them. Apifiny aims to be that network of canals. By connecting all of the world’s exchanges via one interface, Apifiny is poised to transform the crypto landscape as we know it.”
Apifiny connects professional traders with over 20 exchange partners to execute global trading strategies. Its customer roster includes the top 5 US exchanges and 23 of the top 100 global exchanges by trading volume, across 12 countries and 5 continents.
The firm added 10 new exchanges over the past 3 months, including Crypto.com, Huobi Global, OKEx, Kucoin, AscendEX, HBTC, and Blockchain.com’s Exchange.
Apifiny’s Digital Asset Trading Network provides connectivity for multi-exchange strategy execution, deep global liquidity, price discovery, tight spreads, and higher fill rates and capital utilization.
