In an earlier article LCX paints the current crypto market landscape and highlights the pain points that make it so unappealing to traditional finance. Now, let us focus in more detail on one of these pain points: Lack of institutional-grade custodial services.

It may not come as a surprise that these pain points are inherently interrelated and not disjointed. Financial custody cannot be breathed in the same room where regulations are not present. In the U.S. for example, the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 and accompanying Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) require institutional investors with more than $150,000 worth of customer…

Liechtenstein Prime Minister Adrian Hasler compares the Principality to a speed boat — small and agile enough to quickly adopt early stage technologies, introduce appropriate regulatory measures and framework, and react to new developments in a timely manner.

News that Yale University invested in cryptocurrencies came out in early October. This created a buzz among financial observers talking about a potential “Dominos Effect”, believing that the vote of confidence in crypto from Yale’s CIO will convince other investment officers to take a look at the emerging asset class.

Within a week, the news seems to have already attracted five other major educational institutions into investing in cryptocurrencies — including Harvard University, which controls the world’s largest endowment with $35.6 billion in assets.

These institutions are among the first entrants from mainstream finance to invest in cryptocurrency hedge funds…

The crypto industry and the traditional financial world could not have been more worlds apart. Bitcoin is intended to empower individual financial freedom — the ability to take charge over one’s finance without the need for third-party intermediation, either from banks, other financial institutions or governments.

Empowerment of individual financial freedom comes with great responsibilities and potential risks that institutional investors would rather avoid. …
