Woorton was founded in 2017 by a team of former financial services executives with various backgrounds: equity, fixed income, structured solutions, algorithmic trading at some of the largest banks in the world.
In less than 2 years, Woorton grew its volume into the billions by developing a powerful proprietary technology and deploying it to most exchanges out there.
Since then, Woorton has grown into a market making powerhouse serving hundreds of counterparties globally and providing liquidity to all digital asset market participants.
Woorton ensures the provision of liquidity to support the uninterrupted functioning of crypto markets allowing our counterparties to be able to buy or sell any digital asset under all market conditions. We strive to make digital asset markets more efficient, transparent, fair and accessible to all.
Our entrepreneurial culture keeps us laser-focused on innovation and team work in order to achieve our goals and constantly adapt to the paradigm shift offered by cryptocurrencies.
We are always looking for talented and passionate people to join our ranks and help us achieve our vision of a new financial system.
Technology is a driving force of our business. We make ongoing capital investments to ensure our employees have the tools they need to achieve excellence. We invest significant time and resources to ensure our traders have the best tools for the job. That means continually developing and innovating to improve productivity and performance for both traders and developers.
Our traders drive sustained success in high-frequency trading by following a highly disciplined scientific process. We work continuously to expand our predictive models, diversify our strategy and market participation, and reduce latency.
Woorton uses proprietary software and analytic systems, developed in-house, to provide liquidity and identify trading opportunities.
Our end-to-end platform is seamlessly integrated to help you efficiently manage your operations, reporting and regulatory requirements, wherever you trade.
Our proprietary market-leading global multi-asset platform combines Woorton’s cutting-edge liquidity, internal execution, analytics and workflow solutions into one unified and customizable execution interface. Our financial communications network provides secure and fully supported connectivity to our institutional OTC counterparties.
Tomorrow, all assets will be digitized making the $200Tn global wealth more liquid and easily accessible to anyone with an internet connection. The underlying promise of increased liquidity can only be fulfilled if new players step in to produce research and build infrastructures and algorithms designed for such assets.
The first wave of digital assets, i.e. cryptocurrencies, is ripe for opportunities for challengers as regulatory uncertainty and frequent ecosystem shifts will prevent big banks to step in. We believe the second wave, i.e. digitized stocks/bonds/derivatives, will be the turf of pure players since banks, who up until now dominated liquidity management, redirect their focus towards advisory rather than trading.
As an already strong contender in the first wave, Woorton provides 24/7 liquidity to professional traders via secure chats and API connectivity. We offer seamless access to our digital assets against 30 fiat currencies and provide brokerage desks or payments providers around the world including emerging markets such as Subsaharan Africa, Argentina, Mexico or Ukraine.
Our bank-grade trading infrastructure allows us to deploy our capital on centralized or decentralized exchanges with proprietary trading algorithms and enhance the liquidity of all types of digital assets. Whether it is cryptocurrencies today or tokenized securities tomorrow, Woorton is ready to set the pace for the digital asset industry.
Woorton was founded on the belief that transparency enables market participants to make better, more informed decisions and that all investors benefit from markets that are more efficient. The digital asset space is a complex and still young market environment, therefore transactional transparency is an increasingly important part of performance.
Woorton is focused on providing industry-leading transparency, quality liquidity and innovative anti-gaming methodologies for our institutional counterparties.
We believe that fair, open, competitive and transparent markets best serve the needs of all participants. That is why we have been working closely with regulators and policymakers and supporting the development and implementation of rules and regulatory initiatives that produce more liquid and transparent markets.
Woorton is a co-founder of the French Digital Asset Association (FD2A), along with Gide Loyrette Nouel, PwC France, CACEIS and Eiffel Investment Group. The organization has grown to 300+ members and has spearheaded regulatory efforts to build a sustainable digital asset ecosystem in France and Western Europe.
The FD2A has since been dissolved and Woorton co-founded ADAN, a new initiative to maintain a dialogue between the digital asset industry and policymakers.
Our co-founders have been auditioned by the EU Commission, the French Ministry for the Economy and Finance, the French Parliament, the French Government’s Interdepartmental Committee and the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) to provide insights and recommendations on how to regulate our industry.
Woorton has been an active participant in drafting the regulatory framework applied to digital assets in France. Our achievements include eliminating the tax on crypto-to-crypto transactions, drastically lowering taxation of capital gains on digital assets and drafting the Digital Asset Service Provider framework giving regulatory clarity to digital asset exchanges, brokers and market-makers which led to numerous industry players applying for the newly created license and opening offices in France.
Our industry is taking fire from incumbents and less innovation-friendly governments. In a volatile ecosystem regularly struck by turmoil and uncertainty affecting the industry as a whole, we think that we will either thrive together or sink together.
As strong believers in the decentralized revolution and active player in the market, we are committed to improving our surrounding communities by co-hosting meaningful events and supporting projects we truly believe in.
Since 2018, Woorton has been co-hosting CryptoMondays Paris, the biggest recurring meetup in Paris with over 200 attendees every month and the Paris Blockchain Week which gathers over 5,000 attendees and 170 speakers from all over the world for a week-long series of events on blockchain and digital assets.
In an effort to gather the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) ecosystem and share insights and knowledge on DeFi products and trends, Woorton launched the DeFi Podcast with audio episodes and written content freely available on our website.
Finally, Woorton sits on the board of the Enzyme Technical Council, the governing body responsible for overseeing the future development of the Enzyme protocol along with Ethfinex, Solidified, KR1, ZK Labs, Parity Technologies and Avant-Garde Finance.
