ABOUT

They entered the crypto markets as early as 2014, when they began to make markets for one of the early blockchain projects. Leveraging that experience, JST was launched in 2018 to provide a full suite of traditional financial services to institutions in the digital asset market. JST has put together a team of market professionals to support the trading, execution, structuring, investing and risk management needs of institutional investors, blockchain companies, broker-dealers, and foundations.

I think coming from world traditional finance, we tend to think that things like this are already priced into the market.”
