On September 21st, 2017, Rialto had a market cap at USD $28,316,985 for the equivalent of 7,654 BTC or 105,816 ETH, with a circulating supply 85,000,000 XRL at a price of $0.333141 per coin. (-5.44% today)
A friend of mine recently asked me to look into Rialto… after I revealed to him that I haven’t heard of the company and don’t know anything about it. I’m always looking to learn, and the cryptocurrency market certainly provides plenty of opportunities for education, lol. Below I’ve aggregated news and data on Rialto from forums, the website, whitepaper, and other sources.
A quick glance through the news shows some buzz around this company and its management. Rialto is interesting, unique, and fulfills an important, and currently vacant, role in cryptocurrency markets. In a sea of sketchy ICOs, Rialto stands out as having value, but is it worth YOUR investment dollars and will their strategy be successful in this tumultuous market?
Read on for points on who Rialto is, what they do, and what makes them special…
Crypto markets are currently a goldmine for arbitrage and market making. Even in the absence of days like the Friday the 15th of September 2017, when the BTC spreads reached as much as USD 700+ at one point between Chinese and Western markets, the crypto space is characterized by fragmented market micro-structure and simultaneous trading on several exchanges, which makes arbitrage and market-taking a particularly lucrative activity.
“Spreads among gateways are too large, transactions too slow and matching of orders inefficient. By establishing a market-making fund, we will have the advantage of creating one-point access to largest numbers of gateways, earn a fraction on growing number of transactions, and drastically increase efficiency of the crypto markets.” -Rialto

By providing liquidity and matching orders, we are increasing market efficiency and connecting crypto markets, while earning a fraction on every transaction.” – Rialto.ai
- The advantages of RIALTO.AI begin with arbitrage, the simultaneous sale and purchase of cryptocurrency that lets the trader profit from the differences in prices between exchanges.
- Rialto bridges the gap that separates supply and demand, making cryptocurrency trading more accessible to all participants.
- Rialto matches orders so that traders don’t have to worry about delays before fulfillment or time wasted because of those delays.
- Rialto improves efficiency by reducing the gaps of liquidity between gateways and minimizing transaction time.

- Rialto creates a market connecting gateways of the Ripple payment protocol.
- RIALTO.AI is currently developing an AI Tradebot, as well, with the goal of supplementing other algorithms. This AI Tradebot will be a self-learning algorithm that can track transactions on the cryptocurrency market, preventing the need to do so manually. It will also pool addresses and use the information to create a predictive model that can recognize major market shifts before they happen. “The algorithm will track everything, including bitcoin wallets, funds, and transactions during crowd sale projects.”
- Rialto.AI aims to start trading in October 2017. The first Audited report will be available December 2017, and the first payout of profits to token holders will be made March 2018.

- “The long-term goal is to evolve into an entry single point for crypto transactions, as Google is for the searches.”
- Market makers play a very important role in the main financial stock & derivatives markets. Cryptomarkets and its volumes are growing at an exponential rate so market makers who ensure equal prices & enough liquidity on different global exchanges will be necessary. Like it or not, this is needed for the system to grow in a sustainable way.
- This is a project with a real life and clear scope.
- The Rialto team consists of high profile individuals with strong academic and proven backgrounds in the scene where they wish to deliver.

It grants ownership rights to RIALTO.AI proprietary software, data tools, algorithms, and other intellectual property. However, XRL token does not give a supporter any kind of share or equity in any of RIALTO.AI legal entities. Consequently, XRL does not qualify as a security.
