Despite the involvement of Founders Fund, Tagomi has to face a very tough and troublesome battle in further to stand out from the rest of the start-ups.

The aim of Tagomi Systems Inc. is to manage and handle bulk trading of digital currencies which has become a bit troublesome issue now because of the disintegration of the market across hundreds of exchanges across the world. Due to the fragmentation of the market, connecting and reaching out to all of them will require distinct separate accounts and cryptocurrency exchanges has certain limits on the transaction. They have imposed limits on the number of funds that can send and received in a day. All these stumbling blocks make it much hard and time-consuming task to land up with a big trade. Moreover, the value of the cryptocurrency keeps on fluctuating resulting in a difference between the investor’s buying and selling value. It can disturb and can also cause disbalance in the trading process.
According to Tagomi, borrowing page from stock market will prove helpful in running the trade smoothly and easily.
