Expert in distributed ledger based technology.
Working with trading desk, middle office for 20 years and I have good understanding trade execution for cash and derivatives products. I am currently engaged with three block chain based trading platform and advicing them to improve the execution flow.
My personal take on the crypto based execution is that this is in transit phase and it will eventually come out as winner after couple of years depending how fast we are going to win the confidence of governments, regulatory bodies and end users like us. Currently block chain based trading or crypto based trading sounds like you are working on particle theroy or quantum theory where common mass knows that there are some dark particles or quantum mechnanics to understand the sceince behind it. However there are very few who can understand the nitty gritty of the quantum mechnics.
Idea is to educate common mass or qualified mass to provide more sense of security to make them comfortable. I personally feel that volatility of the crypto currecny is too high to risk money unless you have money from inheritages or lottery tickets etc. I understand that its new and it will take time to become mature.
