The former blockchain project development partner of the Bank Styxchange will look after the business development of DLT Markets.
According to a spokesperson of DLT Markets, they are now developing the infrastructure that will create a feasible trading platform for its customers. This will allow their customer to trade on the global digital currency market. The bank will also provide its core clientele with custodial services to trade digital assets.
This is a remarkable development in the cryptocurrency industry as so far none of the exchanges or any other trading platforms have provided its customer with any custodial services. DLT will also perform a risk analysis of the market and will also run an effective market management process so that the payment and booking of the assets can be done securely. The customers will have to pass the KYC and AML test of the Bank.

Although this is not the first venture of the bank to work with digital assets, it also provides cold storage and direct investment for five top digital currencies. According to the latest reports, the country’s postal service will provide digital currency exchange facilities at their real locations.
