Crypto derivatives platform Hxro closes $34M funding co-led by SIG DT, Jump Crypto, and Blockchain Capital

Hxro Network, a derivatives platform built on the Solana blockchain, today announced the closing of a $34 million strategic funding round co-led by SIG DT Investments (A Susquehanna International Group Company), Jump Crypto, and Blockchain Capital.

The $34 million HXRO token round was backed by a marquee list of principal trading firms including SIG DT, Jump Crypto, Alameda Research, Chicago Trading Company, and Pattern Research as well as venture participation from Blockchain Capital, Solana Ventures, Coinbase Ventures, Commonwealth Asset Management, CoinFund, Genesis, LedgerPrime, Mantis, and Magnus Capital.

This latest round follows a $15 million HXRO token deal earlier this year that brought Commonwealth as well as notable macro hedge fund managers Alan Howard and Louis Bacon to the Hxro Network.

As a liquidity, risk, and margin platform for risk-based applications built on the Solana blockchain, Hxro supports a full suite of on-chain derivatives markets. Solana is a key component to Hxro, providing censorship-resistant infrastructure with the speed and low costs to facilitate derivatives markets at scale.

Hxro’s protocols provide open solutions enabling market makers, traders, operators, and other network participants to quickly create and connect to globally aggregated liquidity. These protocols combine the risk, margining, clearing, and efficiencies of centralized derivatives with the open elements of DeFi.

Initially, the Hxro Network will support and establish markets for the most well-known crypto-assets. Subsequently, the network plans to agnostically extend to markets for any high-fidelity data supplied by network-approved oracles. The aforementioned setup enables Hxro to provide the underlying market infrastructure for crypto and traditional assets to sports wagering and other event-driven markets.

Furthermore, Hxro will utilize a unique staking protocol to facilitate network governance, liquidity incentives, and rewards. HXRO’s token value will mainly derive from fees generated within the network. One hundred percent of the Hxro Network’s value will accrue to staked HXRO token holders, specialized node operators, the network treasury, and developer pools vital to network functionality.

Additionally, the Hxro Network will include Pyth Network as its primary data oracle, and will also easily compose with order books from Project Serum. Moreover, Hxro will integrate Civic, which will provide critical primitive layer compliance architecture.

Starting next month and into Q1 of 2022, the Hxro team will be launching v1 network components to the Solana mainnet. This includes parimutuel markets, serial & quarterly futures, perpetuals, and options.
