Arbitrage is the profiting of price differences of the same asset in different markets. Investors in countries with exchange controls – like South Africa can expect to pay more for internationally traded assets due to the restricted supply of hard currencies like the US Dollar. This is how arbitrage opportunities arise.
What exchanges do you use?
We have partnerships with many internationally recognised trading platforms, such as Kraken, Circle, Ovex, Valr and Luno.
What Stablecoin are funds settled in?
Funds are settled in ‘USDC’ rather than other currencies for arbitrage purposes because it allows for a completely low-free trade.
