Fri, 08 Feb 2019, 10:49 am UTC

Crypto futures platform ErisX has announced that former executives from Barclays, YouTube, and the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) have joined the company to fill various roles.

Founded in 2017, ErisX offers individuals and institutions a single, innovative platform to access digital asset spot and futures markets. It raised $27.5 million in its Series B funding round late last year, with participation from Bitmain, ConsenSys, Fidelity Investments, Nasdaq Ventures, and Monex Group, among others.

According to a press release dated February 07, Robert Thrash has been appointed as Chief Operating Officer, Arnold Connell as Head of Infrastructure, and John Denza as Business Development Executive.

Thrash is a derivatives executive with extensive experience across prime brokerage, execution services, and trading. He has spent the past 12 years at Barclays Investment Bank, where most recently he served as Managing Director and Global Head of Futures Execution Services and Clearing Platform Management.

“ErisX has assembled an impressive team of experts to build the most robust, secure and regulated digital asset platform,” said Thrash. “Leveraging intermediary relationships and their diverse group of investors, ErisX will help both institutional and individual participants access these markets.”

Connell joins ErisX from YouTube, where he was one of the original creators of YouTubeTV. He has also spent 9 years at Google in various roles of responsibility.

Denza will bring his extensive experience in exchange and financial technology to the company. He was most recently Director, Head of US Sales at Pico Quantitative Trading. He also spent 10 years at BATS Global Markets/CBOE leaving as Director, US Sales Equities and Derivatives.

“Top performers from financial services and technology domains, alike, are attracted to the opportunity to build an exchange and clearing house from the ground up for a whole new asset class,” said Chippas. “When combined with our assemblage of talent and investor support, the ErisX mission becomes highly attractive to talented, driven professionals and we are elated to welcome Robert, Arnold and John to the team.”
