LEDGER OPENS A NEW OFFICE IN NEW YORK
The company Ledger, which opened prior access to the Vault Ledger in May, appointed former Manager of the ICE Dimitar Skalkotas as the head of a business-department. President of Ledger, Pascal Gauthier said:
“New York is the center of the financial world, so the opening of Ledger Vault in this region is a logical step”.
Ledger has also partnered with non-cryptocurrency companies, like the ICE exchange, to prepare the basis for growing demand by institutional investors.
Ledger Vault is a form of custodial solution that allows multiple corporate departments, like hedge funds, to access a single wallet for cold storage of cryptocurrency assets. In October, the manufacturer of hardware cryptocurrency wallets – Ledger announced the sale of more than 1,300,000 units of its product. Earlier, the company also announced plans to hold another round of attracting investments, which are interested in such technological giants as Samsung, Google and Siemens.
According to the head of the new department in New York, potential clients already require solutions for assets’ custodial business management:
“Safe storage of large multi-currency funds is a complex challenge that cannot be solved simply by applying measures. Institutions are looking for safer storage options that are compatible with regulatory requirements, but don’t want to sacrifice convenience.”
