Digital Assets: Talos Introduces Crypto Options Trading via Deribit Partnership

Talos, the provider of institutional digital asset trading technology, announced the launch of options trading on its flagship trading platform, in partnership with crypto derivatives exchange Deribit as its first liquidity venue accessible at launch.

The integration between Talos and Deribit “allows institutional traders in select jurisdictions to access the exchange’s options liquidity through a new Talos interface designed for institutional options traders.”

Deribit claims that it is among the world’s largest digital asset options markets. It offers institutional-grade exchange infrastructure, “including a high-capacity matching engine, advanced risk management, and deep liquidity.” By delivering Deribit’s robust and reliable liquidity to Talos clients, the partnership will “help lower the barriers to institutions looking to gain exposure to digital assets.”

Luuk Strijers, CCO at Deribit, said:

“At Deribit, our goal is to expand investor access to crypto options trading in a secure, accessible and intuitive manner. Like Talos, we have earned a premier reputation among institutions for our full suite of advanced professional trading services and superior system architecture. We look forward to working together with Talos to shape institutional adoption of crypto.”

Anton Katz, CEO and Co-Founder of Talos, said:

“We are thrilled to join forces with Deribit to offer high-performance crypto options trading to our diverse range of institutional clients. Options are an important instrument for institutions to access and manage their exposure to digital assets. As the industry’s premier crypto derivatives exchange, Deribit is the perfect partner to launch options trading for our clients.”

The launch of options trading on the Talos platform “expands upon existing capabilities, providing clients with a single interface to manage their entire crypto portfolio including spot, futures, perpetuals and options.”

The new options trading interface was “designed from the ground-up in a format familiar to professional options traders.”

Advanced execution tools initially “include limit and pegged orders as well as an Iceberg algo to help clients trade with precision and efficiency.”

Neelabh Dixit, Commercial Product Manager, Derivatives at Talos, said:

“With the full Deribit options chain now at their fingertips, Talos clients can unlock a myriad of strategic possibilities, allowing them to effectively manage risk, enhance portfolio diversification, and capitalize on the immense potential of crypto. We look forward to evolving the product in partnership with our early adopter clients.”

‍As noted in the update, Talos provides “an institutional-grade technology infrastructure that supports the full lifecycle of digital assets trading and procurement including liquidity sourcing, price discovery, trade execution, settlement, lending, and borrowing.”

Engineered by a team with experience building institutional trading systems, the Talos platform connects the diverse group of participants “involved in today’s crypto-asset market structure – institutional investors, prime brokers, exchanges, OTC desks, lenders, and custodians – through a single point of entry.”

This streamlines the entire trading process, “eliminates unnecessary intermediary risk, and provides institutions a clear path to best execution.”
