Decentralizing

Athena is a decentralized financial service company, never relying on central authorities in order to gain trust from the public.
Instead, Athena offers a real-time payment processing and a transparent public communication window, removing overhead costs generated by central authorities.

Decentralization

Athena is a decentralized financial service company that does not rely on trust from financial associations and supervisory authorities.

Centralized financial service companies pay fees to associations and authorities to gain trust from the public, and these fees are passed on to the investors for their protection against financial service companies taking advantage of less sophisticated investors.

Some financial service companies charge investors high fees, provide poor services, and are inadequately capitalized. For this reason, investors seek protection from financial supervisory authorities. In return, these authorities and associations collect fees from financial service companies for their mediation services. Then, these overhead costs are passed down to investors.

Instead of relying on trust given by a central entity, what is needed is real-time payment processing and transparent public communication among investors and service providers. This enables investors and service providers the ability to transact directly with each other and save overhead costs.

What makes Athena different is that Athena does not charge any fee for deposits or withdrawals. Also, investors have easy access to their funds through blockchain-based, real-time payment processing. This secures investors by ensuring funds are always within their reach.

Sustaining the security of your money is the top priority of Athena.

Protection of customer funds

We keep our funds in three of the most reputable cryptocurrency exchanges – Coinbase, Gemini, and blockchain.com – to diversify our risk.

eBanking at Athena connects your trading accounts with cryptocurrency exchanges directly. For deposits, you will transfer your bitcoin to your trading account in real-time from exchanges. When you withdraw from your trading account, you can go to eBanking and process the withdrawal, which will be then sent to your wallet in real-time.

Athena charges no fee for deposits and withdrawals, protecting your funds in the best way by keeping it in your wallet.

Minimizing Liquidity Risk

In order to minimize liquidity risk – where the party who handles your order may not honor settlement due to market or capital risk – Athena works with US-based liquidity providers as a counterparty for online trading.

These entities, including TD Ameritrade and InteractiveBrokers, are some of the most reputable clearinghouses with a long track record and are known to be the most capitalized clearinghouses in the world.

No markup or commissions

Athena does not charge any additional commissions or markup fees on top of the clearinghouses.

Instead, Athena receives rebates on the volumes brought to such clearinghouses. This way, traders at Athena are trading with the largest clearinghouses without having to deal with tedious paperwork and tax matters.
