One of the Wall Street's biggest high-frequency trading firm of Jump Trading with over 700 head count worldwide has been allegedly quietly accumulating on various Cryptocurrencies. The spotlight has been cast upon Jump Trading by a Messari Crypto researcher Mason Nystrom with revelations that the company is accumulating quite heavily on some alts.
