Shaw & Co, Arcesium, Tradeweb, Cboe, Jump Trading, and DRW, Kemet's team brings a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of both traditional finance (TradFi) and crypto-native institutional needs​​. This expertise is reflected in Kemet’s proprietary data model, which eliminates contract non-fungibility, offering a groundbreaking approach to digital asset derivatives trading​​.
