Matrix, a virtual assets trading platform serving global investors, has partnered with BitGo, a provider of digital asset financial services. The union will see BitGo provide Matrix with several different options for custodial services, including hot- and cold-storage capabilities for traders utilizing the Matrix platform.

The global cryptocurrency market is expected to exponentially increase to $4.94 billion by 2030, more than three times its estimated size of $1.49 billion in 2020, according to a recent report by Allied Market Research. The United Arab Emirates is steadily catching up to Western countries in terms of participation in the virtual asset ecosystem.

Matrix is fully compliant with the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) virtual asset framework and is spearheading the push for virtual asset adoption in the region by attempting to position itself as a secure and user-friendly platform. Matrix will use BitGo’s custody solution to offer virtual asset traders a variety of options, including a multi-signature Bitcoin wallet service. At a time when the virtual asset community is massively growing, especially among first-time traders, it should be a priority to provide users with a service that is safe, trustworthy, and convenient to use.

“We are thrilled to be working closely with BitGo, one of the most respected and biggest custodians in the industry,” says Vasja Zupan, president of Matrix. “The partnership with BitGo comes at an exciting time and offers our users the highest quality service when entering the virtual assets industry.”

“We are constantly expanding in the Middle East and specifically in the UAE, a hidden gem with an innovative virtual asset landscape,” says Mike Belshe, CEO of BitGo. “We look forward to offering users first-class service, and by partnering with a distinguished trading platform such as Matrix, we are cementing our foothold in the region.”
