Crypto trading platform Enclave Markets has started a fully encrypted spot exchange, Enclave Spot, as it has seen continued interest from institutional investors, the company said on Wednesday.
“Spot trading is a popular form of trading across the entire financial ecosystem, thus the launch of Enclave Spot was the next clear step in the evolution of Enclave Markets,” Enclave CEO David Wells said.
Like a traditional exchange, Enclave Spot allows traders to buy and sell cryptocurrencies nearly instantly, but it differs in that it is hosted entirely within a secure enclave, a codebase that executes functions such as custody and trade execution. This ensures that no customer veri can be leaked and used as an unfair advantage for some traders.
“The secure enclave environment is an important improvement from the existing exchange infrastructure, where information leakage enables preferential treatment for insiders,” Wells told CoinDesk.
The new platform is secured by independent attestors, including Blockdaemon, Ava Labs, Republic Crypto and Enclave, that oversee custody, review code updates and ensure that no entity has unilateral control.

Enclave Spot will be fully interoperable with Enclave Cross, the company’s previously launched trading platform which allows users to trade blocks of digital assets off-chain, similar to dark pool trading.
Enclave Cross surpassed 1.5 million transactions in the first few months after its launch in September, the company said, with its user base increasing more than 23% quarter over quarter.
