The notorious cryptocurrency exchange is also on track to become a competitor to other platforms like Binance on the spot trading market. BitMEX, according to Höptner, also eyes such areas like brokerage and custody.

"We have to very fast make up our mind how we want to approach these aspects and then see whether we could find a partner or whether we build something or buy something," he said.

Höptner joined BitMEX in December 2020. Prior to it, Höptner had been working at Börse Stuttgart GmbH and Euwax AG since 2018. He also held executive committee roles for Deutsche Börse AG for 15 years.
