2017 marked a tremendous year for blockchain. Through the unprecedented growth of cryptocurrencies and ever-changing business models, many companies saw notable successes in the industry.

While the step into decentralized technology was headed in the right direction, many exchanges struggled with scalability and performance -- several had to go offline to upgrade their infrastructure. And along with scalability issues, many exchanges had to face regulations and build a scalable solution for new users to fulfill KYC obligations.

Having spent many years researching and developing cryptocurrency services, the ORION team put forth an innovative solution -- addressing all facets of the blockchain trilemma.

Through their use of their built in liquidity aggregator, users are able to connect to different exchanges in order to obtain the best spot price for any supported cryptocurrency. Combined with low fees, the cross exchange feature empowers a new generation of innovators to push blockchain growth forward.

Key features of their platform includes:

  1. The ability to buy and sell crypto at the best price from one account
  2. A unique internal liquidity aggregator connecting dozens of exchanges in real time
  3. Opportunities to participate in IEO investments, token spaces, and listings.
  4. Early access to crypto index funds providing investors with a diversified and risk-balanced portfolio
