Bankruptcy claims exchange OPNX is backed by the likes of Susquehanna (SIG), AppWorks and the venture capital arm of DRW trading, the company revealed in a tweet.
Other investors include U.S. options exchange MIAX Group, the Hong Kong arm of China Merchant Bank International and Saudi digital asset fund Tuwaiq Limited.
OPNX founder Kyle Davies, who also started bankrupt hedge fund Three Arrows Capital, remained tight-lipped on the company’s cap table when speaking to CoinDesk last month.
The exchange got off to a slow start, executing a paltry figure of volume on its first day after going live. Since then, OPNX topped $2 million in daily volume earlier this month, according to flexstatistics.
The reputable list of investors demonstrates demand from traditional finance for crypto start-ups.
