CMC Adds Polygon and Solana
CMC Markets expanded its crypto offering this month with the addition of stable coins Polygopn and Solana, taking the offering to a total of 18 major and alt coins, along with three crypto indices.
Speaking to Richard Elston, Group Head of Institutional at CMC Markets Connect, he explained “we’re always keen to add new coins to meet customer demand and that’s very much what drove the addition of these two instruments. However, our own internal processes, along with the need to custody and hedge these positions with tier one regulated entities does make the process of adding coins rather more challenging than we see in other asset classes.”
Whilst CMC Markets in unable to offer digital assets to UK retail customers, the company noted that demand is strong and rising amongst other institutions who are looking for an efficient way of gaining exposure to cryptos, but need to do so through a fully regulated counterparty.
