  • Hidden Road has partnered with crypto exchange Bitfinex.
  • The partnership comes after Hidden Road reportedly broke ties with Bybit.
  • The companies aim to drive institutional crypto adoption through the partnership.

Crypto exchange Bitfinex announced on Thursday its integration with Hidden Road, a multi-asset prime broker for institutions like hedge funds, retail brokerages, and proprietary trading desks.

The development comes after the Citadel-backed brokerage firm reportedly halted access to Bybit for its clients in late May, citing various concerns, including KYC verification policies and anti-money laundering regulations on the exchange.
