Access is powered by Itiviti’s Tbricks, an award-winning trade automation technology and infrastructure that is recognized globally as one of the most popular institutional trading platforms available.
The launch of ‘Access’ comes as institutional investors are making a wholesale shift into digital assets, driven by dwindling returns in traditional assets and escalating fiscal stimuli fueling rising concerns about inflation.
Access provides investors with an aggregated order book across exchanges, and the ability to ensure best execution across their previously disparate liquidity pools. Execution, order and portfolio management are streamlined for investors through a robust front, middle, back office with real time risk and P&L.
Tbricks is a next-generation, cross-asset trading system optimized for low latency, high throughput and scalability. Already in use with many tier one sell-side firms and banks, today’s launch will mean that clients of these firms will now have instant ability to trade crypto currencies and manage their risk and portfolio in the same way as any other traditional asset classes.
Richard Byworth, CEO of Diginex, commented: “This launch provides yet another onramp for institutional adoption of Bitcoin and Digital Assets. Itiviti has a proven track record in providing market leading technology for traditional asset classes to both buy-side and sell-side institutional investors. Diginex brings many years of experience in crypto and digital assets combined with a robust approach to compliance and risk management.”
Continued Byworth: “We see increasing demand for cryptocurrency exposure from institutional investors and believe this will be a dominant theme in 2021. With the launch of Access, investors can now manage their portfolios using institutional technology that is tailored specifically for cryptocurrencies.”
“We are excited to announce our growing partnership with Diginex,” said Rob Mackay, CEO of Itiviti. “With the integration and launch of Access on Tbricks, trading across different crypto exchanges will now be open to institutional investors across the globe and expose them to Itiviti’s advanced automated trading technology.”

As we explained in the previous sections in this guide, an account is only able to send new orders as long as its Total Account Margin is higher than the Initial Margin required for all open positions and open orders. As soon as the Total Account Margin drops below the Initial Margin, the account can no longer send any new orders unless such order would reduce the existing position (e.g. a sell order, when the current position is long). To continue adding positions (e.g. add buy orders, when the current position is long), the trader will have to transfer additional funds that can be used for margin to their wallet, close open orders, or close open positions.Read More
The massive rally in cryptocurrencies is almost unrecognizable from three years ago. When the Bitcoin (BTC) price marked its all-time high just shy of $20K in December 2017, it was exclusively retail-driven. Regulation was scant and insufficient; hacks, scams, and Ponzi schemes abounded; investors made (and lost) a lot of money overnight; and major financial institutions like JPMorgan were steadfast in calling BTC a "fraud" and a "bubble."Read More
