Eventus, Cryptocurrency exchange, Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority Crypto exchange Deribit has selected Eventus’ Validus platform to provide market abuse monitoring on the Panama-based exchange, which offers crypto options and select futures.

David Dohmen, Chief Legal, Compliance & Regulatory Officer, Deribit said the exchange will make the deployment in Q1 2023 in anticipation of operating under the Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority in Dubai. Deribit is also looking to expand into additional jurisdictions while maintaining compliance standards.

“Once I joined Deribit and our search for a surveillance vendor was underway, I was able to share that Eventus’ customer service is excellent. I have looked at and worked with a variety of trade surveillance systems, including Validus in two of my former roles since 2019. I was most impressed with the dedication and diligence of the Eventus team to continuously work with its clients to help improve how the system can meet our needs and resolve any issues we encounter along the way. They care about getting things done; it’s not just about the numbers,” said Dohem.

Additional factors in Deribit’s selection of Eventus, were the firm’s experience with digital asset exchanges and competitive pricing, along with the fact that Validus is intuitive and easy to use.

Travis Schwab, CEO of Eventus said, “We are delighted to help Deribit achieve heightened surveillance capabilities. As the exchange continues to grow and expand its business to new regulatory jurisdictions, our Validus platform provides the scalable, agile solution the compliance team will need as its volumes increase and regulatory requirements become more complex.”
