Matrixport is a Singapore-based start-up with offices in China, Hong Kong and Switzerland. It offers custody, lending and trading services.


In March 2020 The Block Crypto and Forbes both reported that the company was raising $40 million in new funding after enjoying revenues of $7 to $8 million last year, its first year of business.[1][2]

Matrixport was spun off from Bitmain by one of Bitmain's founders, Jihan Wu, in January 2019. John Ge, another Bitmain alumnus, told Bloomberg in a July 2019 interview, “We are closely tied to Bitmain by our origin, but because we operate in different businesses, we are partners rather than competitors." The company employed many developers and other staff who had earlier been laid off from Bitmain.[3]


The company's core business targets cryptocurrency miners. Its trading services include derivatives and structured products.[4]

The company's expansion into Switzerland was reported by SWI on November 26, 2019. Matrixport's Switzerland COO, Hui Wang, said the office would grow to 10 staff over the next two years. She told the news agency that Matrixport will not simply act as a conduit to the Singapore office but rather will provide services to European clients of the company directly.[5]

The company launched, a digital asset derivatives trading platform, in August 2020. Later that month, Matrixport announced it would launch bitcoin options trading towards the end of August.[6]
