Travis Schwab, CEO of Eventus on Market Surveillance for Centralized Digital Asset Markets
In this episode of the Encrypted Economy, I spoke with Travis Schwab, CEO and Founder of Eventus, a RegTech platform for compliance, market surveillance, risk management and AML serving both traditional and digital asset classes. Eventus grabbed a bit of attention recently when they announced that BitMex was going to adopt their platform for both market surveillance and AML compliance. Knowing the pressure on BitMex to choose an established platform given their recent legal issues, it raised the question: How deeply has Eventus penetrated the centralized digital asset exchange market?
Travis and I discussed the accelerating adoption of their platform by institutions. We also discussed the push for institutionalization of digital assets and potentially broke a bit of news on how Eventus may help meet the surveillance preconditions that the SEC has set for approving a Bitcoin ETF. Listeners will learn a lot, so don’t miss this great episode of the Encrypted Economy. And keep an eye on Eventus for more exciting information on digital asset surveillance.
