Virtu Sees Crypto Market As A Long-Term Growth Opportunity
Virtu Financial said during the company’s fourth-quarter earnings announcement that CEO Doug Cifu still remains committed to the crypto market. Acting as a market maker, the company was traded on several exchanges and assumed the role of market maker for Bitcoin exchange-traded funds in Canada. Cifu stated that Virtu continues to see cryptocurrency as a long-term growth opportunity, noting that the bankruptcy of FTX and Alameda Research did not affect the firm’s long-term plans to operate in the cryptocurrency space.
Cifu said in his statement:
“After the recent events, I am proud to say that, as you would expect from Virtu, we are managing the risk associated with events this quarter. Even though we had a fiat and coin balance of around 8 figures deployed in several locations when FTX news broke, we moved quickly and did not suffer any financial losses.”
