BitMEX, the popular cryptocurrency derivatives exchange, today announced that it has enlisted Fireblocks, a cryptocurrency and blockchain-asset custody, transfer, and settlement platform, to propel the development of the company’s forthcoming product offerings.

“We’re thrilled to support BitMEX as it diversifies its product offerings, and with Fireblocks’ infrastructure, it can be done in the most scalable and secure way. BitMEX’s growing customer base will also benefit from utilizing their digital assets securely, ” said Michael Shaulov, CEO of Fireblocks.

As part of our BitMEX’s ‘beyond derivatives’ plans, BitMEX will be expanding its offerings to include Spot, Brokerage, Custody, Information Products, and Academy.
