New supply of crypto assets
Now, it has been announced that the bank will offer three crypto-assets which include Tezos, Bitcoin, and Ethereum.
By offering these assets whose purchase, sale and custody of crypto-assets for institutions, companies and individuals, it will become the first French bank to offer this type of service.
Tokenized assets such as NFTs and staking access will also be included in the services.
It was stated (translated by Google):
The offer will be aimed primarily at companies wishing to invest part of their cash in crypto-assets, at establishments wishing to offer a secure digital asset custody service to their customers and finally, at individuals wishing to buy, sell and keep crypto-assets.
The service offered by Banque Delubac & Cie will make it possible to invest in crypto-assets with the best possible level of security. Each client wallet will correspond to a separate private key; under no circumstances will clients’ assets be pooled.
Initially, the first three digital assets offered will be Bitcoin, Ethereum and Tezos.
This offer will make it possible to invest in real digitized or tokenized assets as well as NFTs (Non-Fungible Token, non-fungible token) and to have access to staking. Other digital assets will be made available to customers based on demand.
