About Us

We are a team of trading professionals, cryptographers and financial engineers committed to removing the inefficiencies that constrain markets. We see the combination of privacy preserving technology and risk management as the solution to unlocking credit. This is the foundation for the X-Margin Credit system, an end-to-end provably private risk engine.

Why We're Here

We believe in the disintermediation of financial services and the importance of privacy. Through applications ofconfidential computing, cryptographyandzero knowledge proofs,we aim to facilitate this disintermediation. We believe our infrastructure is capable of powering the benefits of decentralized systems, absent the trade-offs required by consensus mechanisms.

We focus on re-imagining risk management and clearing. Our products facilitate smart credit extension and enhance capital efficiency for trading firms, while protecting privacy and promoting independent control.
