Bitkub, a Bangkok-based digital currency exchange, is the latest participant to join the inter-exchange liquidity network known as the WorldBook™. The NEXUS WorldBook is an initiative by Broctagon Fintech Group, under the licensed entity Broctagon Prime Markets Limited to create a universal liquidity standard for digital assets. Jirayut Srupsrisopa, Group CEO of Bitkub Capital Group Holdings Jirayut Srupsrisopa, Group CEO of Bitkub Capital Group Holdings Co., Ltd., said: “Blockchain is an underlying protocol. When you use Facebook, you’re not thinking about TCP/IP, you’re thinking about sending messages to your friends. Same with other protocols — you’re not thinking about HTTP when you’re using a website, you will not think about SMTP when you send an email. So, I don’t think in the long run that people will be thinking they’re using bitcoin to send money to a friend. They’ll just be thinking of it as a faster way to get money across without losing money. As we come closer to this sort of protocol-acceptance, we are excited to be part of the WorldBook movement, and look forward to foster greater standardization within its network.” Desmond Ang, MD of Broctagon Fintech Group Desmond Ang, Managing Director of Broctagon Fintech Group, commented on Bitkub’s participation on the WorldBook network, saying: “As the leading cryptocurrency exchange in Thailand, Bitkub’s unique cryptocurrency exchange platform was built with the uninitiated in crypto in mind. With the WorldBook being a universal liquidity standard, Bitkub’s experience in handling local pairs such as BTC/THB can potentially help the inter-exchange liquidity network form a more comprehensive understanding of local liquidity pools and their regulatory requirements.” About BitkubBitkub is a digital asset and cryptocurrency exchange platform that offers advanced cryptocurrency exchange services to individuals who intend to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrencies. Bitkub bridges the gap between blockchain and crypto services to “non-tech users’’ by being the most trusted and easy-to-use cryptocurrency exchange in Thailand.

Broctagon Fintech Group announced the launch of a global network of crypto liquidity providers on Tuesday, forming an aggregated liquidity pool. Dubbed WorldBook, it is a crypto Straight-Through Processing (STP) network and is aiming to standardize the crypto liquidity industry.
Singapore, September 14, 2021: Fintech solutions provider, Broctagon Fintech Group, today launched WorldBook, a global crypto movement focused on solving key liquidity issues plaguing the industry. WorldBook is the world’s first crypto STP (Straight-Through Processing) network with the largest aggregated liquidity pool. The initiative aims to introduce a universal standard of liquidity for digital assets, uniting both processes and technology within the crypto industry under a single framework. Unlike the highly streamlined Forex or Securities financial markets, crypto trading is highly fragmented with significant price disparity across exchanges. This is largely because of existing market norms where exchanges operate in a silo within their orderbook, limiting their offerings and therefore prices to the participants within. The eponymous WorldBook combines the orderbooks of all connected exchanges to create a unified orderbook that enables multilateral liquidity flow. Instead of being confined to local orderbooks which may represent less than 1% of the total industry, exchanges now gain access to 85% of the market. This is made possible by the NEXUS 2.0 aggregator, the driving engine that powers the WorldBook with SOR (Smart Order Routing), which allows for global price discovery and best bid and offer. Don Guo, CEO of Broctagon Fintech Group “Despite the gaining acceptance of crypto, it remains a “wild west” with no dominant technology or standard in which it operates. With the WorldBook’s price aggregation, we found that bitcoin had an average negative spread of USD$10, even amongst the major exchanges. This means that with over USD$15.5 trillion in trading volume over the past year, traders could have saved USD$5.7 billion in spreads and this is for bitcoin alone, which is already the most efficient and liquid digital asset. The price disparity could only be worse for the thousands of altcoins across many smaller exchanges.” said Don Guo, Co-Founder and CEO, Broctagon Fintech Group highlighting the issues. “We engineered the WorldBook infrastructure taking a page from the fundamentals of FX interbank liquidity. With our experience as a regulated FX liquidity provider, we believe the Prime of Prime (PoP) model has the potential to disrupt the industry and increase crypto trading volumes by more than 400% in the near future.” The WorldBook is part of Broctagon’s commitment to propel the crypto industry towards regulatory compliance, adoption, and maturity. As Singapore looks to be a poster child for the crypto industry with its welcoming policies, the homegrown fintech company seeks to support this national agenda. Exchanges are welcome to connect to the WorldBook for free. The advantages for exchanges include an evident increase in volumes and a decrease in bid-ask spread amongst others. For example, the BTSE exchange experienced an eight-fold increase in trading volume, surpassing 10,000 trades across six crypto pairs within the first month. “Liquidity challenges exist for newer and established exchanges alike. The former requires extensive capital for marketing to capture enough users for a liquid orderbook while the latter often pay hefty fees for external market maker services to drive profitability. The WorldBook is a solution for both. With universal prices and unprecedented depth, exchanges can focus on other aspects of the business to bring further value to their clients.” said Don. Shadab Taiyabi, President of Singapore FinTech Association “We congratulate Broctagon, which is one of our active members, on their launch of the WorldBook. The growth of our FinTech ecosystem is a collective effort of all members of the community, fintech and financial institutions alike,” said Shadab Taiyabi, President of Singapore FinTech Association, a cross-industry non-profit initiative recognised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Globally, crypto exchanges that are not within the top 3 percentile account for only less than 10% of total trading volume, according to data derived from CoinGecko. With its symmetrical flow of liquidity, the WorldBook levels the playing field for newer exchanges to contend and explore new frontiers, driving growth for the entire industry at large. “We recognize how a standardized framework for liquidity can ensure steady supply and demand for our clients. It is a pleasure to work with the WorldBook, and we shall support them as they look to introduce cohesive standards for the entire industry and elicit greater public adoption of cryptocurrency,” said Weber Woo, CEO, XT Exchange, the first digital asset social trading platform with close to half a million active monthly traders. Beyond a liquidity network, the Worldbook is also an open initiative to forge greater collaboration amongst industry peers old and new, to create a digital asset landscape primed for multifaceted participation. Amongst its pioneering members are Huobi Group, FCA-regulated Archax, BitKub, as well as RegTech companies such as Horangi and Cypnopsis as well as Defi and blockchain firms like Hodlnaut and Bholdus amongst many others.
