印度国家银行向数字资产银行Sygnum投资1000万美元以上

2021-2-21 14:23

 

日本国家银行控股公司(SBI Holdings)旗下的国家银行数字资产(SBI Digital Assets)宣布对瑞士Sygnum银行(Sygnum Bank)进行8位数的投资。四个月前,两家公司推出了一个联合投资基金,目标是数字资产初创公司。


Sygnum表示,这使过去6个月筹集的资金总额达到3000万美元。该银行在瑞士和新加坡都持有牌照。


SBI digital Asset Holdings首席执行官费尔南多·路易斯·瓦斯克斯·曹(Fernando Luis Vasquez Cao)表示:“受监管的银行平台将在满足机构对数字资产日益增长的采纳浪潮中发挥重要作用。”“作为一个受监管的专业数字资产专家,Sygnum是我们的最佳合作伙伴,帮助我们实现我们的愿景,使这个资产类别更值得信赖。”


两家公司都热衷于推广他们的证券代币(STO)解决方案。去年,SBI e-Sports通过SBI Securities使用SBI作为投资者的BOOSTRY平台发行了一个证券型通证。


而Sygnum也有自己的STO解决方案符号,该符号曾用于token化自己的股票。该银行此前表示,计划进行首次公开募股,股票将在新加坡第六数字交易所(SIX Digital Exchange, SDX)以及新加坡未来交易所(future Singapore Exchange, SBI和SDX的合资企业)交易。不过,赛格纳姆还有一个二级市场交易平台赛格纳克斯。


除了将这两个平台商业化,Sygnum还希望利用这些资金来扩大其托管服务,包括更多的下注服务和产生产品。此外,除了最近推出的期权产品外,它还打算提供其他数字资产产品。


去年,瑞士数字资产银行SEBA筹集了2000万瑞士法郎(2200万美元)的B轮融资,虽然这只是a轮融资1亿瑞士法郎(1.11亿美元)之后的第一轮融资。据报道,另一家瑞士公司Lykke正寻求为其数字资产平台融资1500万瑞士法郎(1700万美元)。Lykke是由理查德·奥尔森创立的,他之前是外汇经纪公司OandA的联合创始人,在2018年被CVC Capital以(未经证实)1.75亿美元的估值收购。


在上周印度国家银行的投资者介绍会上,这位首席执行官概述了他的数字资产愿景。这包括上述提到的新加坡SBI- sdx合资企业、SBI与斯图加特证券交易所(Boerse Stuttgart)的数字资产合作,以及一个尚未宣布的伦敦合作伙伴。

 

SBI Digital Assets, part of Japan’s SBI Holdings, announced an eight-figure investment in Switzerland’s Sygnum Bank. Four months ago, the two companies unveiled a joint investment fund to target digital asset startups.

Sygnum says this brings total funds raised in the last six months to $30 million. The bank holds licenses in both Switzerland and Singapore.

“Regulated banking platforms will play an essential role in meeting the growing wave of institutional adoption for digital assets,” said Fernando Luis Vasquez Cao, SBI Digital Asset Holdings CEO. “As a regulated and professional digital asset specialist, Sygnum is the right partner to help us deliver on our vision to make this asset class more trusted.” 

Both firms are keen to promote their security token offering (STO) solutions. Last year SBI e-Sports issued a security token through SBI Securities using the BOOSTRY platform in which SBI is an investor.

And Sygnum has its STO solution Desygnate which it used to tokenize its own stock. The bank previously said it planned to have an IPO with the stock to be traded on the SIX Digital Exchange (SDX) as well as the future Singapore exchange, a joint venture between SBI and SDX. However, Sygnum also has a secondary market trading platform SygnEx.

Apart from commercializing these two platforms, Sygnum wants to use the funds to expand its custody services to include more staking services and yield generating products. Plus, it intends to offer other digital asset products beyond the recently launched options offerings.

Last year, Swiss digital asset bank SEBA raised a CHF 20 million ($22m) Series B, although that was very much a down round following a CHF 100 million ($111m) Series A. Another Swiss firm Lykke is reportedly seeking to raise CHF 15 million ($17m) for its digital asset platform. Lykke was founded by Richard Olsen, who previously co-founded forex broker OandA, acquired in 2018 by CVC Capital at an (unconfirmed) $175 million valuation.

During SBI’s investor presentation last week, the CEO outlined his digital assets vision. This included the above-mentioned SBI-SDX venture in Singapore, SBI’s digital assets tie-up with Boerse Stuttgart, plus a yet-to-be announced partner in London.
