OKX Partners with Hidden Road to Offer Prime Brokerage Clients Access to Deep Liquidity and Streamlined Execution of Complex Trades

SINGAPORE, May 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — OKX, a leading crypto exchange and Web3 technology company, today announced a strategic partnership with Hidden Road Partners (Hidden Road), the global credit network for institutions. This partnership aims to offer a turn-key experience for Hidden Road’s clients, enabling them to execute advanced trading strategies and facilitate delta rolls more efficiently.

This partnership centers on the integration of OKX’s Nitro Spreads, a venue to execute basis, futures spreads, and funding rate arbitrage strategies, into Hidden Road’s prime brokerage offerings. This will provide Hidden Road’s robust institutional client base with the following benefits and capabilities:

  • On-demand access to OKX’s deep liquidity for both makers and takers;
  • The opportunity to minimize leg risk between markets (all orders on Nitro Spreads are guaranteed to fill in matching quantities for each leg or none at all); and
  • The ability to select a guaranteed spread for a trade before execution, mitigating the risk of unexpected price slippage.
    • Trades are then matched and settled immediately.

Hidden Road International CEO and Global Head of Business Development Michael Higgins said: “Hidden Road continually seeks to increase market access and capital efficiency through expanded prime brokerage offerings. Integrating OKX’s Nitro Spreads product builds upon this philosophy by extending our counterparties’ ability to execute risk-managed arbitrage strategies.”

OKX Global Chief Commercial Officer Lennix Lai said: “Leveraging the superior liquidity of Nitro Spreads, our strategic partnership with Hidden Road enables us to extend the reach of OKX’s deep liquidity and efficient execution of advanced strategies to an expanded network of institutional traders. Our collaboration further streamlines the trading experience for Hidden Road clients and underscores our technical expertise in the institutional trading space.”

This collaboration follows OKX’s recent achievement of surpassing its all-time high in monthly futures spreads trading volume on Nitro Spreads, reaching nearly US$5 billion* in March 2024. The milestone is a testament to the exchange’s dedication to enhancing its institutional offerings. For example, OKX recently launched a ‘Quick Trading’ mode on Nitro Spreads, which enables users to instantly select the ‘Top of Book’ on any spread/side with a double-click, removing the need to manually open order books or input details.
