Background

ItBit offers institutional and professional traders bitcoin exchange trading as well as OTC brokerage services. It also offers bitcoin custody services in its regulated trust company.[1] ItBit offers U.S. dollar against bitcoin trading on its platform.[2] ItBit was the first cryptocurrency registered by the New York State Department of Financial Services when it received its trust license on May 15, 2015.[3]

In a 2016 reorganization, itBit's bitcoin trading operation was separated from its blockchain services, which thereafter were provided under the name Paxos.[4]

At about the same time as the reorganization, itBit shed a couple of prominent alumni - Daniel Kim, who took a position at Gemini Exchange and Bobby Cho, who left to head Cumberland Mining Materials.[5]

On June 14, 2018 itBit announced that New York Department of Financial Services had granted it permission to expand its trading and custody services to bitcoin cash, litecoin, ethereum, and stellar lumens.[6]

In July 2018, itBIT confirmed that along with its partner ED&F Man it had arranged the first ever bitcoin EFP using CME's bitcoin futures.[7]
