Faced with a crypto winter rigorous, the conglomerate Digital Currency Group will close TradeBlocksound brokerage service dedicated to institutional investors.

Digital Currency Group has just announced the closure of its crypto brokerage unit TradeBlock. The institutional trading platform had been acquired by DCG in 2020 for an undisclosed amount.

Due to the state of the broader economy and the prolonged crypto winter, as well as the challenging regulatory environment for digital assets in the U.S., we have made the decision to terminate the company’s institutional trading platform,” DCG said.

Following FTX’s bankruptcy last autumn, one of DCG’s subsidiaries, Genesis Global, was forced to file for bankruptcy. The crypto lender has been in talks with its creditors, which include Gemini, for several months.
