Up-and-coming derivatives exchange GlobeDEX – or Globe as it’s simply known – has closed a private round worth $18 million.
A host of blockchain VCs lined up to back the exchange on its mission to create an advanced trading platform that can cut it with the best of them.

All the usual staples you would expect of a derivatives exchange are present and accounted for including leverage of up to 100x, bitcoin futures, and defi assets. In addition, though, Globe boasts exposure to the Crypto Volatility Index, a perpetual product that’s sure to appeal to seasoned traders.
