Zug; May 19, 2021 – Today the crypto markets were exposed to an unprecedented downturn, seeing the price of Bitcoin drop by more than 22% within a period of only 45 minutes. Bitcoin Suisse’s robust business model with a diversified crypto exchange setup stands the test in these turbulent times.
The business model of Bitcoin Suisse featuring an aggregated marketplace trading over a number of the most popular global exchanges was put to a major test today. Thanks to the diversification across all relevant crypto exchanges, Bitcoin Suisse was able to remain actionable and ensure that its clients could continue trading with only very few exceptions. The positioning as a broker with access to multiple crypto exchanges proves to be a strong advantage compared to trading with a single exchange, limiting downtimes to an absolute minimum.
