Digital Asset Trading and Mining Firm Apifiny Hires Former Goldman Sachs Exec

Digital asset trading platform and crypto mining firm Apifiny has hired Jason Jiang as Chief Technology Officer. Prior to joining Apifiny, Jiang was a Vice President at Goldman Sachs where he led technical development efforts within the company’s Global Markets Division, overseeing Quantitative Trading, Electronic Market Development, and Custom Algo Research groups, according to a note from the company. Before working on Goldman, Jiang was the software development manager for the Financial Modeling group at Blackrock, where he designed and developed BlackRock’s Fixed Income Analytics System (ANSERTM) from scratch.

Jiang’s appointment is part of an ongoing trend of traditional financial services executives joining fast growing digital asset firms that are rushing to fill growing demand from both institutions and retail users.

Jiang has been hired in preparation for an anticipated public offering.  Apifiny did indicate the timing of the offering.

Jiang has a background in building ultra-low latency trading and risk management systems and co-location – all key in the crypto trading space.  As CTO of Apifiny, Jiang will serve as the technical lead in continuing to develop and improve its digital asset trading platform for professional traders across a range of exchanges and across the globe to maximize global liquidity, best prices, and profits.

Haohan Xu, CEO of Apifiny, said that Jiang brings a wealth of experience in the financial services sector and is “ideally positioned” to help his company transform “and unify the global crypto market.”

“We are uniquely positioned to become the de-facto global crypto marketplace for trading professionals, connecting all of the world’s exchanges via one, unified interface.”

Jiang believes that the crypto market is currently very fragmented consisting of “many trading ‘lakes’ but no canals connecting them.”

“Apifiny aims to be that network of canals. By connecting all of the world’s exchanges via one interface, Apifiny is poised to transform the crypto landscape as we know it,” said Jiang.

Apifiny reports that it is growing rapidly with customers roster that now includes the top 5 US crypto exchanges and 23 of the top 100 global exchanges by trading volume, across 12 countries and 5 continents.

Apifiny seeks to connect professional traders with exchange partners to execute global trading strategies at the best global prices. Apifiny states that it has added 10 new exchanges over the past 3 months, including, Huobi Global, OKEx, Kucoin, AscendEX, HBTC and’s Exchange, and more.
