Success for Exactpro on Testing for Live Digital Derivatives Platform ZUBR

Exactpro, a specialist , ex-LSE Group firm providing independent functional and non-functional testing, has successfully finalised full software testing of the live digital derivatives platform ZUBR Exchange ahead of its launch. Exactpro’s testing was aimed at providing transparency to ZUBR’s clients and investors, and has ensured robust trading and risk engine performance.

The ZUBR testing leveraged a set of specialized functional and non-functional testing tools developed by the firm and tailored to simulate high-frequency trading environment in modern execution venues, in order to assess the quality and performance of the trading and risk engine behind the platform.

“The testing included a few milestones, such as the analysis of documentation and requirements, the development of testing scenarios, multiple rounds of testing, risk assessment and recommendations,” notes Alexey Zverev, Co-Founder and Director of Exactpro. “A number of testing tools developed by Exactpro to test our clients’ software were used for verifying functional and non-functional requirements of ZUBR’s new trading platform.”

“Crypto exchanges and trading opportunities have been changing over the course of the last few years. The current trading environment is becoming more advanced, with additional diversified products and strategies being introduced to stay competitive,” adds ZUBR CEO Ilgar Alekperov. “We have been building our new trading platform with that in mind and realized early in our software delivery process that we needed thorough and independent software testing to prove that our new platform is fit for purpose for go-live. Exactpro has delivered that for us”.
