FalconX Provides ETF Liquidity Services to Australian Market, Expanding Global Capabilities

SAN MATEO, Calif., June 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — FalconX, the leading institutional digital asset prime broker, announced today it has partnered with Monochrome Asset Management to become a liquidity provider for the issuer’s first spot BTC ETF in Australia. The Monochrome Bitcoin ETF was officially quoted on Cboe Australia on Tuesday, 4 June 2024 under the ticker ‘IBTC’.

FalconX is a leading liquidity provider to digital asset ETF issuers globally, successfully executing over 30% of total BTC creation purchases on behalf of ETF sponsors in the US during the inaugural day of trading in January 2024. FalconX also utilised its leading OTC trading capability to provide liquidity for Virtual Asset Trading platforms in Hong Kong following regulatory approval in April this year.

FalconX is expanding in the APAC region to meet growing demand for digital asset-based ETFs. "We’re delighted to be assisting the Monochrome team and given the significant retail and institutional adoption of ETFs in Australia, we believe that there is potential for a thriving digital asset spot ETF market," said Nello Cafcules, Head of ETF Business Development at FalconX. "As the regulatory landscape evolves, we look forward to providing our full suite of institutional services to help develop the digital asset ETF ecosystem in Australia."

"We are thrilled to announce the launch of Australia’s first spot Bitcoin ETF that holds Bitcoin directly, an exciting milestone for Monochrome as we continue our goal of providing investors with secure, transparent, and efficient access to Bitcoin through traditional vehicles," said Jeff Yew, CEO of Monochrome. "We are delighted to partner with FalconX to access the firm’s crypto native and institutional liquidity which is critical to the trading and pricing stability of IBTC."

FalconX launched its APAC business in Singapore in 2022 and expanded into Hong Kong in February 2024. "Providing our brokerage services to Australian institutional investors is part of our strategy to provide quality digital asset liquidity to APAC institutional and professional investors," said Matt Long, APAC General Manager at FalconX.
