Due to the certain licenses that both Nadex and the Small Exchange hold, the deal will allow Crypto.com to begin offering its clients access to derivatives and futures products. 

Kris Marszalek, the Co-founder and CEO of Crypto.com, said that that Crypto.com's goal is to provide its clients with trustworthy and secure products and that this acquisition will broaden that offering.

“Our goal as a platform is to offer our customers a trusted, secure, and regulated platform with world-class tools to achieve financial independence,” said Marszalek. “This proposed acquisition builds on that promise and will give our customers access to an entirely new set of financial tools to complement our current offering.”

A part of the IG Group, the Nadex platform offers options, call spreads, touch bracket contracts and more. The Small Exchange is primarily a futures retail trading platform with a simple user interface. The addition of both to the Crypto.com platform allows the growing crypto company a great deal of room to expand its offering. 

June Felix, the Global CEO of IG Group, said that the deal is beneficial to all parties and that IG Group is pleased Crypto.com recognizes how the two trading platforms can add value to its platform.

“This is a fantastic deal that is beneficial to all parties. Nadex and the Small Exchange are strong innovative businesses, and we are pleased that Crypto.com has recognized their potential. This will be an exciting time for clients and all those involved in the businesses”, said Felix.

Crypto.com's acquisition of the two brokerages is expected to be finalized within the first half of 2022 depending on regulatory response.
