About Aya

Aya Kantorovich is a well-versed crypto market expert who co-founded Fractal, a company focused on creating more transparent and reliable structures within the crypto market. Kantorovich, along with her team, recognized the urgent need for greater transparency in the digital assets market following several capital market mishaps in 2022, including the collapse of firms like Three Arrows Capital and FTX. Fractal’s inception followed increased interest in on-chain finance from institutional investors, leading to a successful $6 million fundraising round​​.

Fractal is developing a platform that enhances the transparency of clearing and settlement in digital assets. By doing so, it aims to eliminate the obscurity that led to the over-leveraged deal-making that triggered the downfall of many firms in the past. The ultimate goal of Fractal is to prevent future market blunders and to provide a more secure and transparent environment for crypto trading and investing.
