Gemini Partners with State Street on Reporting Pilot




State Street Partners with Gemini Custody

This month saw some exciting developments in the crypto sphere as the State Street Corporation announced it chose the Gemini custody as a strategic partner in its new crypto pilot program. The joint-venture is part of a broader goal to launch a reporting pilot for cryptocurrency holdings. If successful, the project will enable investors to view reporting on both traditional and crypto investments simultaneously.

News of the concept first broke on Dec. 17. Announced was the launch of the new pilot and clarified some details on the project. Developers explained that Gemini Custody would integrate with State Street’s back-office reporting. The aim is to simplify the reporting process for blockchain investors by allowing users to consolidate the reporting of their digital assets.

Advanced Reporting – State Street

According to developers, the pilot will provide users with a number of helpful reports. By allowing clients to receive reports on their holdings of other digital assets directly with their traditional assets, investors can make more informed decisions. To start off with, the project will only produce reports on two cryptocurrencies.

Discussing the new collaboration, Ralph Achkar, managing director of digital product development and innovation at State Street described the motivation behind the project. He explained that investors continue to show a “small, but growing demand” for further report integration. Achkar also took a moment to explain some of the difficulties the company must address to make the project successful. He described a situation in which the “many technical, operational, regulatory, and legal considerations” make the concept a difficult task.
