韩国新韩银行(Shinhan Bank)投资数字资产托管

2021-1-10 18:54

 

新韩银行宣布对韩国数字资产信托(KDAC)进行投资,这是一个初创企业联盟,提供数字资产托管解决方案。KDAC于2020年3月由Korbit加密货币交易所、企业区块链公司宝高(Blocko)和研究公司Fair Square Lab组成。新韩目前在宝高有投资,宝高开发了Aergo企业区块链协议。


新韩KDAC协议于2020年10月签署,以合作开发解决方案和投资。


据韩联社报道,新韩银行的一位官员表示:“数字资产托管是一个可以充分利用银行合规能力和托管经验的领域。”


他还表示,由于《特别金融信息法》(Special Financial Information Act)的实施,该行将“积极应对快速变化的数字资产市场。”这项涵盖数字资产的法案将于今年3月生效。


到目前为止,KDAC已经开发了冷钱包解决方案,并计划提供热钱包和DeFi应用程序。


去年,技术部门新韩DS与韩国主要IT公司韩通签署了一项协议,开发数字资产解决方案。


两个月前,韩国银行KB Kookmin与Hashed和Haechi Labs、KODA (Korea digital assets)成立了一家数字资产合资企业。


与此同时,许多银行正在其他地方推出数字资产解决方案,包括新加坡的星展银行(DBS Bank)、英国的渣打银行(Standard Chartered)和北方信托(Northern Trust),以及瑞士的BVVA。

 

Shinhan Bank announced an investment in Korea Digital Asset Trust (KDAC), a consortium of startups that provides a digital asset custody solution. KDAC was formed in March 2020 by the Korbit cryptocurrency exchange, enterprise blockchain firm Blocko and research firm Fair Square Lab. Shinhan has an existing investment in Blocko, which developed the Aergo enterprise blockchain protocol.

The Shinhan KDAC deal was signed in October 2020 to partner in developing the solution and the investment.

According to Yonhap News, a Shinhan Bank official said, “Digital asset custody is an area where you can make good use of the bank’s compliance capabilities and custody experience.”

He continued that the bank will “proactively respond to the rapidly changing digital asset market due to the implementation of the Special Financial Information Act (Special Law).” The Act, which covers digital assets, comes into force in March.

So far, KDAC has developed a cold wallet solution with plans for a hot wallet offering and DeFi applications. 

Last year the technology division Shinhan DS signed a deal with major Korean IT firm Hancom to develop digital asset solutions.

And two months ago, fellow Korean bank KB Kookmin launched a digital assets joint venture with Hashed and Haechi Labs, KODA (Korea digital assets).

Meanwhile, numerous banks are launching digital asset solutions elsewhere, including DBS Bank in Singapore, Standard Chartered and Northern Trust in the UK, and BVVA in Switzerland.
