Анкоридж будет расти после сбора средств в размере 80 миллионов долларов

Прошлый месяц, digital asset entity Anchorage received a bank charter from the United States Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, or OCC. Этот месяц, the outfit has added $80 million in funds.

“Cегодня, we are pleased to announce that Anchorage has raised an $80 million Series C, led by GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, with participation from a16z, Blockchain Capital, Lux, and Indico,” a blog post announcement from Anchorage said on Thursday, добавление:

This new capital will allow us to rapidly scale to meet the rising demand for participation in the digital asset space, particularly among corporations and traditional financial institutions.

В январе, the OCC dished out a banking charter to Anchorage — a first by the governing body for a blockchain company. The ruling came with a number of guidelines, including specific restrictions preventing Anchorage from acting as a bank in the traditional sense.

Anchorage started as a digital asset custody solution, later expanding into other crypto finance endeavors. Its recent blog post detailed:

This new round of funding will help us help institutions participate in new ways — by bringing crypto to their users, by diversifying their corporate treasuries, and by enabling a wide range of emerging use cases.

Upcoming developments include easing the processes around the lending of digital assets and partnerships with multiple bank types, the post added.

В июле 2020, the OCC gave U.S. national banks the go-ahead to offer crypto custody services.
