“I am very pleased to join this innovative, high-tech trading venue. The regulatory challenges are constantly increasing, but the introduction of 24/5 turbo trading for cryptocurrencies at the beginning of May alone, as the first European trading venue, shows how far Spectrum has come here," comments Ilja Rempel.
