Serving the world’s leading investors, we are at the forefront of a megatrend which will fundamentally change financial services – if you wouldn’t accept Google or Amazon only working 5 days a week – why aren’t financial services 24/7 truly global and more accessible? Blockchain has proven that it is possible at scale, and FalconX is excited to lead that change.”
