Integral, a major forex trading technology provider, announced on Thursday the launch of Integral Digital, a trading and client distribution platform to support cryptocurrencies and fiat-backed stablecoins.

Established in 1993, Integral primarily provides cloud-based SaaS FX workflow solutions and targets a broad range of buy-side forex market participants, including banks, brokers, asset managers, and hedge funds.
