Strategic partnership to transform the financial services
METACO SA has formed a strategic partnership with Frankfurt School Blockchain Centre (FSBC), the think tank and research centre which investigates implications of the blockchain technology, crypto assets and distributed ledger technology (DLT) for companies and their business models.
This partnership will see FSBC support research and development, technical infrastructure, and leverage its extensive network to strengthen METACO’s service offerings and further expand its position as the leading security-critical infrastructure provider in the market.
METACO is the global leader in building the digital asset infrastructure that is transforming the financial services industry. Its SILO solution, the institutional operating system for digital assets, has been implemented by Tier 1 and Tier 2 BaFin, Finma and MAS regulated banks, exchanges, and infrastructure partners. SILO delivers a full stack solution that is supported by a diverse range of partners from integrated core banking software partners, security solutions, compliance, and trading to tokenisation.
Seamus Donoghue, VP Sales & Business Development at METACO, said: “METACO is proud to be a partner of the leading organisation in Germany and Europe that is transforming the financial services industry through its thought leadership, research, education, and joint industry initiatives. As the leading digital asset infrastructure partner to regulated banks and exchanges, both in Germany and internationally, we see significant synergies through this new partnership to further accelerate the institutional understanding, adoption, and use of crypto assets in Germany and Europe more broadly.”
FSBC will leverage its technical infrastructure, knowledge, and wide-ranging industry network to further strengthen METACO’s service offerings. FSBC will also support METACO on research and development in the areas of custody and enterprise blockchain, to contribute further to METACO’s work in transforming the financial services industry.
