Zero Hash delivers secure, low latency infrastructure to settle digital assets in a completely automated way with full regulatory compliance. “Zero Hash is committed to building best-of-breed technology for the digital asset space, and tastyworks shares that ambition in stock and option trading. Together, we enable crypto trading to tastyworks clients in the most user-focused way possible,” said Edward Woodford, Zero Hash’s CEO.
“I’ve traded crypto personally for several years, but what’s been missing is the seamless integration with the rest of my portfolio,” said Tom Sosnoff, CEO of tastytrade. “This partnership with Zero Hash solves that problem for all tastyworks clients.
