We’re looking to add a Python developer to our team to assist our dev team to maintain but also add new features to our existing code base.
Under the trade name AcheronTrading, the company is a designated market maker and provides liquidity and advisory services to digital asset issuers on exchanges worldwide. It is our belief that market inefficiency is one of the factors preventing digital assets/cryptocurrencies from achieving mass adoption. As such, our focus is to construct and provide liquidity services for digital assets from the most embryonic stages and throughout their adoption cycle.
Acheron has over 125 institutional clients with market share across over 50 exchanges worldwide, with team members concentrated in North America and Europe.
Market-making is essential to emerging digital assets because, without a liquid trading environment, market participants cannot buy or sell tokens without causing a drastic change in the market price. This phenomenon is known as "market slippage." Acheron's services directly reduce market slippage and thus result in more efficient trade for market participants.
We have integrated with over fifty decentralized and centralized exchanges providing holistic coverage across the digital asset ecosystem. Receive data-backed insights to determine which venues are the right fit for your goals.
Emerging digital assets can be hyper-volatile during price discovery. We consult teams in designing and selecting the appropriate liquidity strategy to develop a liquid market while managing the inventory risk for their digital assets throughout their adoption cycle.
