Trade.io describes itself as a multi-asset blockchain exchange and financial investment and advisory firm. The company’s offerings include their liquidity pool, which enables users to earn interest daily, as well as a crypto trading platform that focuses on customization, ease of use, and built with the trading community in mind. Additionally, through www.tiomarkets.com traders can transact in FX, CFD’s & Global Equities by depositing fiat or crypto.
Since the launch of the platform in 2018, new assets have continued to be added. The company claims to perform due diligence in order to ensure a consistent level of quality instruments. The company introduced its fiat service on 24 May 2019, providing a variety of deposit and withdrawal methods for users. Traders from Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia will be able to deposit in their local currency, with Malaysia, China, and South Korea to join the list. Free fiat deposits are on offer for any liquidity pool members with 2,500 TIOx or more.
