Crypto Wallet Startup Blockchain Introduces Institutional Investment Platform

Announcements, News | June 29, 2018 By:

Crypto wallet provider Blockchain has introduced a new platform targeted at institutions, family offices, and individual investors.

Called Blockchain Principal Strategies (BPS), the platform aims to provide the institutional market with “unparalleled and tailored access to markets, research and services on the most trusted digital asset platform worldwide.” Through BPS, investors will have access to an over-the-counter (OTC) trading desk that will offer a white-glove trading service.

“Our long standing position in the market and technical expertise allows for trading across major currencies and digital asset pairs, powered by a sophisticated smart Order Management System (OMS) that combines liquidity from across the market to ensure best execution,” the company said.

The new platform will aslo provide clients with a custom portfolio view, risk metrics, as well as access to a research team that staffs Garrick Hileman, the University of Cambridge’s first “cryptocurrency academic,” hired by Blockchain in May this year. Clients will be able to explore a variety of managed investment offerings including the opportunity to make direct equity investments into promising companies in the larger digital asset ecosystem, as well as gain access to early stage token offerings – all sourced and vetted through Blockchain’s global network.

Peter Smith, CEO and Co-Founder of Blockchain, said that “BPS will provide clients the opportunity to invest in digital assets with the same peace of mind and security that has become synonymous with the Blockchain name.”

Breanne Madigan, Head of Institutional Sales and Strategy at Blockchain, said that in addition to the BPS platform itself, they will also offer educational and networking opportunities with hopes of creating a broader, well-informed community around digital currencies moving forward.
