Proven Blockchain Digitization & Trading Platform

Technology Overview

AlphaPoint has developed the AlphaPoint Distributed Ledger Platform (ADLP), a general-­purpose blockchain platform, from the ground up to streamline the deployment of distributed financial applications. The platform encompasses AlphaPoint's award-winning trading infrastructure, enabling organizations digitize financial instruments, rapidly create trading venues, and reduce operational overhead. ADLP provides firms and institutions a secure, flexible means of engaging with digital asset issuance, smart contracts, and automated workflows.
ADLP leverages and adapts the inherent strengths of blockchain technology - single truth, distributed consensus, and cryptographic auditability - providing a suite of plug-and-play building blocks allowing for rapid development and deployment of secure applications with flexible consensus and permissioning systems. AlphaPoint’s platform has been deployed in production since late 2013, handling live volumes across a variety of asset classes.

Distinguishing Features


ADLP enables customers to digitize financial instruments, rapidly create trading venues for those same instruments, and manage pre-trade and post-trade workflows across a variety legacy and DLT systems.

The platform itself integrates with both existing financial infrastructure (such as FIX messages), as well as other blockchains, enabling firms to bridge the divide between existing and emerging protocols.

ADLP offers a suite of ready-made, production-tested components - including tools for risk management, external integrations, and order matching - that firms can leverage to rapidly test and deploy applications on the platform. These components are built on high-level APIs that sit on top of a secure set of proprietary libraries powering the ADLP distributed ledger.
