“Datapost has been in the trusted services business for more than 2 decades. We hope to provide a new range of services for our corporate clients. With KSB Cobo, we hope to provide both centralized and decentralized custodian services for Corporates. We are not in the space of speculating the values of cryptocurrencies or digital art pieces. We are investing into providing such services because we predict the needs to safeguard this class of assets will continue to grow exponentially.
Digital Assets class is not just starting to be part of an individual’s class of assets but also showing up on the Balance Sheets of Corporates. The importance to safekeep this class of assets is the same as protecting a physical asset (i.e. laptops or cash) in the physical world. Such services allow corporates to have proper processes to manage their assets in the metaverse. Watch this space!”, said Dr Marvin Tan, Group Executive Director and Co-founder of ADERA Global, the parent company of DataPost.
“We look forward to working with Cobo to roll out Cobo’s custodian services in Singapore and make KSB Cobo a success”, said Kevin Lim, Chief Executive Officer of DataPost, a subsidiary of the ADERA Global group of companies.
“When financial institutions want to offer digital assets as alternative investments for their clients, they need the capabilities to securely store and safe-keep the digital assets for their clients. This is what Cobo aims to supplement with its blockchain and custodial technology solutions”, said Dr Jiang Changhao, CTO and Co-Founder of Cobo.
