Another story that is coming forward is that as of May 14, 2018, UK based Kx Systems has launched the trading of cryptocurrencies on the trading platforms of Kx. Kx Systems includes customers like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley among others. Kx for Flow is an HTML5 FX exchanging platform which allows users to make liquidity pools and distribute value data of price information to their clients and customers.
Initially, the platform used to operate with such liquidity sources as banks, non-deliverable advances, valuable metals and contracts-for-contrast. They have now added cryptocurrencies to their lists.

When you sift through the noise the interest from mainstream financial services firms to begin trading cryptocurrencies has been growing and we are delivering this solution to meet the current and future needs of our clients.”
