Anchorage Digital Expands in Asia with Five New Institutional Partners
Anchorage Digital offers a range of crypto services to a cross-section of Asia’s financial players
The market for digital assets is global, and some of the highest rates of adoption are in Asia. With business hubs in the United States, Singapore, and Portugal, Anchorage Digital is pleased to announce our expansion to Asia, with notable institutional partners including Bitkub, Dream Trade, FBG Capital, GMO-Z.com Trust Company, IOSG Ventures, and Antalpha, which have selected our custody and bespoke offerings to safely participate in digital assets.
“Asia’s consumers have adopted crypto with enthusiasm, and its financial institutions need an infrastructure partner so they can offer new crypto products and services. One size definitely does not fit all in a global market, and Anchorage Digital provides custom solutions for its partners.”
— Diogo Mónica, Co-Founder and President, Anchorage Digital
Anchorage Digital’s dedicated relationship management team based in the region provides Asia’s most important crypto-native companies and financial institutions with 24/7 client operations support, making their needs a priority with bespoke solutions. Further, our time to transact — under 20 minutes — is unmatched in the market and offers a powerful competitive advantage.
Many of our clients in Asia select us for our strong regulatory status in the United States, where our national-level bank charter helps them to meet or exceed national standards for security, risk monitoring, safekeeping, fiduciary obligations, and compliance.
Today, we are pleased to reveal a variety of client types and use cases showing our ability to localize our products based on client needs. These partnerships show that Anchorage Digital has arrived in the region in a major way, representing a cross-section of its traditional players, crypto-native venture capital, hedge funds, and more.
“We appreciate Anchorage Digital’s attention to regulatory compliance and vetting of the digital assets they support. Through their combination of crypto-native fluency and understanding of traditional finance needs, they continue to support us in expanding the adoption of digital assets.”
— Will Chiu, Chief Investment Officer at Antalpha
