Cryptocurrency custodians are third parties that store large amounts of digital assets for institutions, hedge funds, exchanges and issuers of initial coin offerings. Companies in Hong Kong now have a new locally regulated option, which could help to increase investor confidence.

It plans to begin offering automated cryptocurrency custodial services in December. It is also said to be in talks with a couple of “mid-sized” insurance companies to possibly add their coverage to its services. The Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong recently introduced a new regulatory framework for the local cryptocurrency industry, including exchanges, asset portfolio managers, intermediaries and fund distributors. Among other requirements, licensed asset fund mangers need to choose to keep clients’ funds at a custodian, an exchange or in cold storage. This is the niche Invault is now stepping into, storing the private keys for clients’ wallets in a physical vault. Storing 1 Million ETH in Mainland China Invault is backed by venture capital fund Matrix Partners China, which contributed $5.85 million in seed funding earlier this year. The startup reportedly already has a staff of over 40 in Shanghai and holds 1 million ETH under custody for mainland Chinese clients. “We believe that globally, custodians for cryptocurrency assets will be regulated and operated under a trust license,” Invault founder and CEO Kenneth Xu told the South China Morning Post. He also predicts that most of the demand for institutional custodian services in Asia will come from Hong Kong and Singapore. Last month the New York State Department of Financial Services granted a license to a subsidiary of Coinbase to operate as an independent qualified custodian for six cryptocurrencies. And earlier this year financial analysts warned that a lack of institutional custodians is a significant barrier to investment in the field. Would cryptocurrency users feel safer to work with companies that keep their holdings with a custodian? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
The Philippine government-owned Cagayan Economic Zone Authority has unveiled a plan to attract Japanese, Korean and Australian companies to its “Crypto Valley of Asia.” The authority is also cracking down on crypto companies operating within its economic zone without a license. Also read: Indian Supreme Court Moves Crypto Hearing, Community Calls for Positive Regulations Ceza’s Crypto Valley of Asia The Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (Ceza) announced last week its plan to attract companies from Japan, Korea, and Australia to its Crypto Valley of Asia. Ceza has partnered with one of its principal Offshore Virtual Currency Exchange (Ovce) licensees, Rare Earth Asia Technologies Corp., to achieve this expansion. The agreement gives the tech company the exclusive right to be Ceza’s sole marketing and technical partner to promote Ceza in the aforementioned three countries, the authority explained. Crypto Valley of Asia will be marketed as “the most ideal investment destination in Asia for blockchain, crypto and financial technology (fintech) companies,” Ceza wrote. The authority further noted that it offers companies “clear guidelines and transparency, attractive tax incentives, access to a rich pool of talent in the areas of blockchain and fintech, and other benefits,” elaborating: The development plan for the Crypto Valley of Asia includes the launch of a blockchain and fintech university to provide skilled and experienced workers for companies in the economic zone. On Nov. 23, the Philippine News Agency reported that Ceza’s revenue from January to September reached 521 million pesos (~$10 million), doubling from 224.55 million pesos earned for the full year of 2017. Ceza CEO and Administrator Raul Lambino explained that Ceza’s venture into cryptocurrency and blockchain technology has boosted its revenue this year, adding that “Growth in the economic zone will be investment-driven.” Furthermore, about 50,000 jobs will be created, the news outlet noted. Rare Earth will also be issuing a “token that enables its exchange partners to receive a share of transaction fees,” Ceza added. “This initiative shall be subject to Ceza fintech and Ovce rules and regulations as well as its upcoming framework and regulations on ICO [initial coin offering] and STO [security token offering].” In addition, Ceza wrote: As part of the agreement with Ceza, Rare Earth will comply with all the Philippine rules and regulations of the concerned regulatory agencies such as the Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) when appropriate. Crackdown on Unlicensed Crypto Firms The Manila Times reported on Nov. 22 that Ceza is cracking down on cryptocurrency firms operating in the zone without authorization. Ceza is collaborating with the National Bureau of Investigation and the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group of the Philippine National Police to go after unlicensed crypto businesses. The authority has also issued an order to closely monitor activities in its crypto valley program, the news outlet wrote. According to Lambino: There have been reports of some unlicensed cryptocurrency firms that have burrowed into Ceza’s emerging fintech-crypto hub where they set up illegal operations. In October, Ceza announced that it had awarded licenses to 19 companies, allowing them to operate crypto businesses within the zone.

Crypto exchange Bitfinex has raised the minimum fee for fiat currency bank wire withdrawals and we’ve covered the details in The Daily. We also look at a San Diego-based company’s new hardware cryptocurrency wallet and the decision of one of Portugal’s leading football clubs to issue its own token. Also read: US Defense Department Probes Blockchain, Singapore Approves 1X Bitfinex Charges $60 for Bank Wire Withdrawals Bitfinex has raised the minimum fee imposed on fiat withdrawals to bank accounts.

Users who want 24-hour money transfers on working days will have to pay a 1 percent fee. The minimum withdrawal fee for fiat funds at Bitfinex used to be just $20. On Nov. 11, the exchange announced plans to charge a 3 percent fee on all external wire withdrawal requests exceeding certain frequency and size limits — more than two fiat withdrawals a month and more than $1 million in aggregate in fiat withdrawals in any 30-day period. The latest increase was not mentioned in the press release. Bitfinex is currently the fifth-largest digital asset trading platform by daily volume, according to data provided by Coinmarketcap. The exchange has estimated that the new fees will not affect what it called “regular withdrawals” by most of its customers. FLX One Wallet Released San Diego-based FLX Partnership Ltd. has announced the release of its latest cryptocurrency hardware wallet. FLX One supports 20 popular cryptocurrencies, including major coins such as BCH, BTC, LTC and ETH. The device comes with a built-in rechargeable battery and Bluetooth wireless functionality.

For example, it can disable communication automatically when signing transactions. The device also supports encrypted communication between each of its components. It is capable of detecting attempts to tamper with its software and can permanently lock itself. The wallet is offered with a backup device, FLX Key, which can be used to restore account information in case the FLX One is damaged or lost. The press release details that the backup process is integrated within the initial setup — the FLX Key must be inserted into the hardware wallet and the FLX One system will automatically copy the important data.
