Everything you want to know about cryptocurrencies and blockchain
Cryptocurrency first came across our radar as an internet experiment and we’ve watched it develop into a means of exchange, a payment platform, a store of value and most recently a complex financial instrument. Blockchain is the underlying technology, a type of distributed ledger made up of immutable, digital, public datasets, which has the potential to transform all sorts of business transactions, relationships and contracts.
Our knowledge of the financial services sector, which includes experience in navigating all regulatory aspects, combined with our technology expertise makes us an ideal partner for businesses who are embracing cryptocurrencies. Dealing with such a fast developing sector needs flexibility; we have, at various times, engaged with policy officials at UK regulators, brought in external experts in clearing and settlement, and leveraged our bank of financial services precedents to produce quick wins.
