In a world where the smallest margins represent millions of dollars, attempts to manipulate the market are inevitable. And with few regulations governing this “new” asset class, Cryptocurrency markets are no exception and are considered particularly vulnerable to hacking, fraud, money laundering, and other criminal activity. Justin Handsman, FICC & Derivatives Specialist, KX, and Charles Gregory, VP of Product Management for Surveillance Solutions, join host Steve Wilcockson, KX to explore the challenges, opportunities, and nuances of Trade Surveillance across multiple markets. Referencing real-world examples, the team discusses: • The similarities and differences between traditional and digital exchanges, from the exchange and trader point of view. • Impact of data volume and the difficulties of building the “perfect picture” - compounded by market depth challenges. • The importance of real-time transactional visibility.
