DXM, a financial services subsidiary of South Korean fintech firm Dunamu, has worked with crypto cybersecurity firm Ledger to launch an institutional crypto asset custody service. The partnership and the new custodianIndustry news outlet TheBlock reported on Dec. 4 that DXM plans to launch the custodian under the name Upbit Safe and that Ledger Vault, Ledger's custody arm, will support the initiative with its technology.
Ledger's Head of Asia-Pacific region Glenn Woo explained that Ledger Vault offers solutions that allow institutions to customize their custody rules to better fit their needs. "We are a subsidiary of the largest exchange in Korea and have an advantage over our peers given that we already have a lot of assets we can bring into our custody. The combination of the Upbit brand, Ledger Vault's security technology, and DXM's own technology will give DXM an edge in the Korean market." Lack of regulation hinders crypto growthStill, Yoo admitted that institutional participation in the crypto space in South Korea is largely hampered by unclear regulation.
Woo also explained that Ledger Vault is still a new service in the space and is still trying to penetrate the market. The number of custody services aiming to secure the crypto assets of institutions is steadily increasing as regulation is making the space more suitable for institutional investors.
