Weekly we propose videos from Blockchain Zoo youtube archive!
This week video is: Custody Services for Digital Assets | Alexandre Kech | BBH#12
Technology, security, and compliance – these are the main barriers standing between digital assets and asset custodians. Traditional asset custodians simply are not equipped to manage digital assets with as much confidence as they have in bonds, cash, real estate, equity shares, and other legacy financial vehicles. Alexandre Kech and Onchain Custodian are trying to change that.
On the new episode of Blockchain Beyond Hype, we sat down with the Onchain Custodian CEO to discuss his past experience in the financial industry, what drew him to the Blockchain world, and the many challenges ahead for digital asset advocates and the financial sector writ large.
But, as Alexandre notes, the global financial sector is actually going through a lot of change – digital and otherwise – and there are reasons to be optimistic about the future of crypto, digital assets, and the regulatory and industrial frameworks that can be built to scale.
