The competition to attract institutional investors into the cryptocurrency space is pushing development of the systems in every way. But one of the most important for these customers is security. In order to be compliant with regulations in any country, there are strict requirements in place. Bitstamp has chose to employ the Irisium Surveillance platform to monitor for suspicious activity and market manipulation. This is following a recent partnership with Cinnober, a partial owner of Irisium the develops technology for financial markets.

Many groups have been created this year that are trying to come together on consensus on things related to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, whether on regulatory issues or deeper code level concepts related to the financial instruments. Now a group of ten companies are looking to standardize a code of conduct the digital asset space. The Association for Digital Market Assets, or ADAM was founded by Galaxy Digital, Genesis Global Trading, GSR, Hudson River Trading, Paxos, Symbiont, BitOoda Technologies, BTIG, Cumberland and XBTO. They want a universal code of conduct with voluntary rules for efficient trading, custody, clearing and digital asset settlement.

Ledger Opens New York Office


New York is the center of the global financial industry. The state has pushed cryptocurrency regulations for America and developed the widely touted BitLicense. As institutional investors investigate entering the new market, security remains a top priority. In order to maintain the highest safety for cryptocurrency funds, they must be cold stored - meaning not connected to the internet. This requires physical memory storage, where Ledger has become the industry leader. They are now working to move from the individual holder’s choice, to the institutional investor’s choice. Their new system, Ledger Vault allows for multiple members of a corporate entity to access the same cold storage wallet.
