5 Questions with Adam White of Coinbase’s GDAX, the U.S.’s Largest Digital Currency Exchange

As we hope you have now heard, Trading Technologies has launched connectivity to an important new asset class, spot cryptocurrencies! For TT, this represents a move into a marketplace that caused us to rethink the end-user experience so we could offer the cryptocurrency trading platform we would want to use. We are proud to be partnering with Coinbase’s GDAX exchange as our initial exchange connection into cryptocurrency trading.

We thought it would be fun to catch up with Adam White, Vice President and General Manager of GDAX, to get his perspective on the GDAX exchange, partnering with TT and the crypto market. Many thanks, Adam, for taking the time to share your thoughts.

By now, we hope you’ve heard the big news: not only will TT be expanding into a new asset class, crypto (!), but also we’ll be doing it with a connection to Coinbase’s Global Digital Asset Exchange (GDAX).

“Why now?” “Why GDAX?” “How do I get involved?” “Will TT offer full functionality for crypto trading?” These are all questions we expect to be hearing in the upcoming days.
