Crypto futures platform ErisX has announced that Joseph Lubin, founder of ConsenSys and co-founder of Ethereum, and fintech entrepreneur Cris Conde have joined the company’s Board of Directors.

Founded in 2017, ErisX offers individuals and institutions a single, innovative platform to access digital asset spot and futures markets. The company’s strategic partners include Nasdaq, Cboe, Fidelity Investments, Bitmain, Ameritrade, and others.

Conde will bring his in-depth experience of working with start-up organizations to ErisX. He was the co-founder of Devon Systems, which was acquired by SunGard in 1987. Conde joined SunGard and went on to become President and CEO until 2011. 7He is replacing Cliff Lewis, as Independent Member, who has been on the ErisX Board since February 2018.

Lubin, with an extensive background working in the blockchain and crypto space, is a valuable addition to ErisX. As ConsenSys founder and CEO, his global organization builds infrastructure, applications and services for the Ethereum network.

“ErisX has a unique position in the market with support from a wide range of investors as well as experienced leaders at the helm,” said Joseph Lubin. “I look forward to bringing my experience with decentralized technologies and digital assets to a model that will further democratize access to digital assets. 2019 is likely to be a breakthrough year for digital assets, and the exceptional ErisX team is poised to lead.”

Lubin and Conde join an existing Board of Directors, which includes Don Wilson, CEO of DRW, Antonio Gracias, Managing Partner at Valor Equity Partners and Thomas Chippas, CEO of ErisX.
