Trading & Liquidity
Electronic Market Making
For Exchanges, we act as both principal and designated market making (DMM). We compete for customer orders by creating consistent and predictable markets in both cash and derivatives. By generating deep liquidity, we make markets more efficient and transparent around the globe.
For Token Issuers, we advise on primary issuance and manage the secondary market life cycle. Our market making offers high liquidity, market depth, narrow spreads, and transparent price discovery. We partner with token issuers to structure customized liquidity solutions using programmatic trading strategies.
Our team has an unparalleled depth and breadth of experience in managing risk across a wide array of token models and structures - from “vanilla” to highly complex. This includes algorithmic/elastic supply protocols, dutch auctions, lockdrops, initial futures offerings, dual-token structures, trade-mining, and DeFi derivatives.

Acting as a market maker and wholesale distributor, we work with exchanges, wallets, neobanks, and wealth management platforms to bring custom yield offerings to eligible users and market participants.
How We Do It
Diverse balance sheet composition matches client and internal capital, allowing stablecoin-denominated yield on puts without requiring in-kind collateral
Risk warehousing model and focus on internalization that works to minimise market impact and information leakage
Focus on customization and automation to facilitate outsourcing of market risk in an efficient manner
Our lending desk offers collateralized loans across all major coins and stablecoins. With our ability to lend in large sizes across flexible tenors, clients work with us to optimize their balance sheet and working capital. Our loans allow clients access to quick funding while allowing them to retain upside in the collateral.
Mining & Staking
Amber Mining supports the decentralized growth of digital assets while focusing on the important task of securing the blockchain. We manage a growing number of large scale mining sites in the U.S., offering clients, investors, and miners hosting solutions to multi-scale mining operations and blockchain services. Our mining team includes industry veterans with extensive experience in designing, building, and operating blockchain infrastructures to maximize efficiency.
Through RockX, Amber offers staking-as-a-service and an access node API to investors and developers alike. For proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchains, tokens are pledged to a specific network protocol. The staking protocol chooses validators to confirm blocks of transactions, who are rewarded with newly minted tokens. As the network being validated gains in popularity, the more rewards are available for validators.
Validator and staking services
Participate in major and emerging blockchains such as Polkadot, Kusama, Solana, Terra, Oasis, ETH 2.0 and many more. Through RockX, wallets, custodians, and asset management platforms can bring staking yield to their users, while assets are sitting securely in their own wallets.
Access node API for developers and decentralised applications (“dApps”)
Access nodes allow anyone to interact with blockchains and access on-chain data in a timely and stable manner. This provides greater opportunity for developers, as it can help to reduce complexity and cost for dApps' development.
Enables any developer or institution to interact with major PoS blockchains instantly, reducing development complexity and cost
Hybrid cloud architecture and backup nodes avoid any single point of failure. 24/7 monitoring and recovery systems ensure consistent node uptime
Secure access control to prevent DDoS attacks and hacks. Seamless upgrades of latest security fixes and new blockchain features
Investing & DeFi
We support multiple initiatives in the DeFi and emerging Web3 ecosystem. We invest and interact with protocols, provide liquidity and participate in networks spanning decentralized lending, derivatives, gaming, middleware, asset management, and new financial primitives. We act as market makers, liquidity providers, and liquidators in CLOB, RFQ, AMM-based DEX’s and borrowing/lending protocols across multiple blockchains. We also act as price-feed providers (oracles), run nodes, and build blockchain infrastructure to help fuel network growth.
Amber is actively involved across all areas of crypto, including NFTs, infrastructure, layer one blockchains, DAOs, and new Web3 primitives that do not have a category yet. We offer a horizontally-integrated service offering to support the entire ecosystem. We incubate and build protocols, tools and applications that accelerate adoption and innovation. We back exceptional founders and ideas that can positively contribute to the burgeoning crypto ecosystem. Our firm structure and thesis-driven approach allow us to partner with entrepreneurial teams for the long-term - if you are building something new and innovative, reach out!
