Vertalo to Integrate Digital Asset Managment Platform with Hedera Hashgraph

Hashgraph Integration

Vertalo has just announced that they are currently working towards integrating their own services with Hedera Hashgraph.

The cap table software, built by Vertalo, utilizes a distributed ledger as the ‘core database system’. By integrating with Hedera Hashgraph, Vertalo gains access to a fair, secure, scalable distributed ledger on top of which they can offer their services.

Vertalo notes that the scalability, and ability to govern the network, led to their decision for integration with Hedera Hashgraph. These two attributes are of particular importance in an industry that is both rapidly growing, and under intense scrutiny from regulatory bodies.

Commentary

Upon making their announcement, representatives from each, Vertalo and Hedera, took the time to comment.

Dave Hendricks, CEO of Vertalo, states,

“Hedera Hashgraph represents the kind of technology that Vertalo – and the market – require to deliver a trusted solution for a growing global client base…As more assets move from centralized databases and spreadsheets onto distributed ledgers, the underlying infrastructure needs to scale along with it. Vertalo has chosen to build on Hedera Hashgraph because we require technology that can not only process at higher rates than earlier DLTs, but that also comes with an improved governance model that reflect our values and those of our clients.”

Jordan Fried, SVP of Business Development at Hedera, states,

“Vertalo’s digital asset lifecycle management platform is helping to solve some of the most crucial challenges facing the digital asset economy today. We are pleased that they have selected to build their platform on top of Hedera Hashgraph, to give customers the security, fairness and trust that are crucial for these kinds of services.”

Hex Trust Custody Platform made Possible through IBM

Addressing a Common Goal

With rising institutional interest in the world of blockchain, products and services built with security in mind are paramount to ensure continued adoption.  With this in mind, IBM, and Hex Trust have recently announced a partnership.

This partnership, which is the product of an MOU signed between the pair in mid-2019, sees Hex Trust building a custody solution for the industry.  Development on the project being made possible through the use of Hyper Protect – a LinuxONE based suite of services developed by IBM.

Platform Capabilities

The capabilities of the platform look to be quite versatile, with support for digital assets of any nature – including digital securities.

The following is a brief list of only a few capabilities to be offered by the Hex Trust custody solution.

  • Reporting and monitoring
  • Multi-Factor Authentication
  • First & Third party key management
  • Hierarchical sub-account structures

Commentary

Upon announcing their partnership, representatives from each party took the time to comment.  The following is what each had to say on the matter.

Alessio Quaglini, CEO of Hex Trust, stated,

“Through our relationship with IBM as a Business Partner Hex Trust has hit a key milestone.  Leveraging IBM’s advanced data security and protection features through IBM Hyper Protect Virtual Servers with the dynamic accessibility and scalability, Hex Trust’s proprietary platform will encourage regulated financial institutions to enter the space.”

Ross Mauri, General Manager for IBM Z, stated,

“Data privacy and protection are key concerns for enterprises and customers within the digital asset business…By taking advantage of IBM Hyper Protect Services, Hex Trust can gain the benefits provided by the security and privacy solutions underpinned by IBM LinuxONE, to establish a highly secured platform for their institutional custody solution.”

Custody

With digital securities, and similar markets, expected to grow greatly in the coming years, there need to be solutions put into place that safeguard assets.  While many retail investors remain quite lax, with regards to the security of their digital assets, institutional players will not fall into this trap.  Only once there are sufficient safeguards in place, will they truly enter the market.

Development of such services has begun popping up throughout 2019, and look to continue that trend in 2020.  Whether it’s Gemini providing custody services to BlockFi, or Coinbase Custody supporting digital securities such as ‘BCAP’, there is evident growth.

IBM

Operating out of New York, IBM has remained one of the world’s most well-known tech companies for decades.  While the company has had various specialities throughout the years, they currently have an emphasis on cloud and cognitive based solutions.
