Zodia Markets: The UK’s First Bank-Backed Cryptoasset Company

Background: Zodia Markets is the UK’s only bank-backed cryptoasset company, being majority-owned by Standard Chartered Bank. Indeed, it is one of the few in the world. In this webinar we will explore its path to being established including the risks that the Bank was concerned about. We will also give an overview of what sets it apart from other cryptoasset brokerages and exchanges, such as access to banking services and foreign exchange.
