What we do

D2X is a regulated crypto derivatives exchange for institutions, based in the Netherlands. In 2024, D2X became the first entity in the EU to receive a MIFID II MTF licence authorising it to list regulated crypto futures and options. With institutional demand for digital assets on the rise, our exchange fills a crucial gap by offering institutions a regulated trading platform open 7-days-a-week. Our mission is to facilitate seamless adoption of crypto derivatives by financial institutions.

An internship at D2X is the ideal opportunity to learn more about crypto and financial markets, develop your professional skills, and start building up your own professional network. Join us to build together The Secure Gateway to Digital Assets!
