Hex Trust 2023 In Review

Hex Trust 2023 In Review

December 22, 2023

Through the twists and turns of legal battles stateside, and the mounting anticipation of pending Bitcoin ETF applications, 2023 has been a year of recalibration and progress. 

There has been a marked recognition amongst global regulators that to build the guardrails to protect investors - we must collaborate. And policymakers have listened, supported and reacted. 

Major players will seek to root their foundations in regions where regulators take a supportive and progressive stance to foster innovation and protect investors. The dialogue between policymakers and market participants has ensued across the ecosystem this year, and Hex Trust has actively participated.

Our resilience in 2023 is a positive signal of confidence and underscores our commitment to building secure blockchain infrastructure and expanding our global reach as a fully-licensed digital asset custodian.

Here’s a snapshot of what we have done, together with our key partners, to achieve our goals in 2023.

A year of building, innovation & growth

Cementing our global footprint

Our dedication to delivering 24/7 regulated digital asset support to our 250+ global institutional clients has been a cornerstone of our success. In an industry that never sleeps, we have demonstrated our commitment to staying vigilant and responsive at all times. 

All while meeting the strictest regulatory, compliance, and security standards, we consistently uphold our commitment to doing things the right way, without exception.

We solidified our presence in Europe and the Middle East, obtaining a Digital Asset Service Provider (DASP) registration in France and a full Virtual Asset Service Provider (VASP) license from VARA in Dubai.

The following are the new licenses and certifications we obtained this year, which attest to our commitment:

Participating in pilot programmes 

Market particpants have deepened their understanding of the opportunities and risks associated with  digital asset innovation.

From the launch of pilot programmes in Asia to test the viability of tokenization and CBDCs, to the regulation of stablecoins, - global policymakers and financial institutions have collaborated across borders  to develop common standards for digital asset market design. Hex Trust has been actively engaged in this dialogue, taking front and center positions.

As part of the e-HKD Pilot Programme, we joined a consortium of partners supporting Ripple and Fubon Bank to showcase  a use case for the equity release of tokenized real estate assets through Ripple’s CBDC platform. 

Expanding our ecosystem

We facilitated seamless integration with leading protocols, expanded into DeFi and metaverse asset custody, and enhanced staking solutions across various digital platforms.

Facilitating access to digital asset markets

Hex Trust goes beyond being a licensed custodian. 

This year, we introduced Hex Trust Markets (HTM) - a comprehensive platform that offers clients products and services to facilitate seamless access to the digital asset markets.

HTM offers a wide range of services, which include:
