Cryptocurrencies Trading Platform Provider MTX achieves 5x increase in transaction volume
SINGAPORE – December 11, 2019 – Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that its strategic partnership with Vietnamese telco provider FPT, has successfully propelled local Vietnamese companies to expand into overseas markets. This strategic partnership has supported blockchain-enabled cryptocurrency trading platform provider MTX to achieve its global expansion goals, as they take their first step into Singapore in the Southeast Asia market.
Vietnam’s economy is set to expand as it continues its transformation into a global manufacturing hub. This is evidenced by the fact that in 2018, Vietnam outstripped Chinese GDP growth for the first time in nearly three decades. As Vietnam’s economy matures, local businesses are starting to consider taking the next step in their growth and expand beyond the country's borders.
As companies move towards a multi-cloud, multi-technology and multi-collaboration oriented digital future, Platform Equinix® continues to emerge as an essential interconnection gateway for buyers and service providers. Having embraced Platform Equinix at multiple regional hubs worldwide, FPT has been able to build end-to-end Fully Managed Services including infrastructure, network, security, application, data, resiliency, scalability, migration, optimization and more.
This combined offering of FPT’s connectivity and Platform Equinix provides local businesses, including MTX, with the regional and direct connectivity that they need to take their business abroad. By collaborating with Equinix and FPT, MTX is able to expand their business in Southeast Asia with its first expansion in Singapore. It also benefits from the high-speed and low-latency connectivity necessary for high-quality financial services, such as smooth and fast transactions of cryptocurrency, as well as instant order settlement on its platform.
“With this entry into Singapore, we are hoping that this will pave the way for our expansion plans into Southeast Asia. The combined solutions from both FPT and Equinix provide MTX with the connectivity that allows us to deliver tailored solutions to our customers on a global and local level, which in turn, allows end users to benefit from a much better user experience thanks to the high-quality and seamless services that we bring to the table as a white-label exchange solution provider.”
Over the years we’ve witnessed customers demanding for a more comprehensive solution that helps them resolve and improve multiple issues – equipment, configuration and colocation needs. Equinix’s global interconnection presence and reputation as the leading data center provider worldwide enable us to address these changing customer needs by providing connectivity solutions on a regional and global scale. We’re glad to deepen this strong partnership with Equinix to enable and support the expansion of Vietnamese companies into overseas markets.”
“We are proud that our long-term strategic partnership with FPT has enabled its customers expand beyond the Vietnamese market. The success with MTX also demonstrates the importance of a distributed interconnection platform in delivering secure, high-speed and low-latency blockchain services. Our highly advanced IT infrastructure and private connections make Equinix the perfect platform to complement the key attributes of blockchain applications.”
