DLT and Digital Assets

DLT and Digital Assets

Enabling access to Digital Assets


Recent developments such as Goldman Sachs’ decision to set up a dedicated Digital Assets unit demonstrate that the financial services industry has finally acknowledged the role that DLT and digital assets will play in the years ahead. Untarnished by recent setbacks and market turmoil, many banks are therefore developing strategic roadmaps for entering the digital assets space and setting up first use cases. To avoid falling behind their peers, players without experience in the digital assets space should carefully consider whether to enter the market with their own dedicated offering.

Use cases for DLT and digital assets in the financial service industry
are numerous and range from brokerage to investment advice and asset
servicing. While the choice of service offering depends on a bank’s client focus and business model, digital assets custody and transfer capabilities are prerequisites for any of the above. Forming the backbone of an institutional digital assets infrastructure, digital assets custody is a strict requirement for storing tokens. Moreover, investors expect to be able to seamlessly move digital assets between institutions, making transfer capabilities compulsory.




When setting up a digital assets custody and transfer offering, a solid strategy and value proposition, rapid implementation as well as a technologically sound solution are amongst the main challenges. Moreover, banks should be aware of the specific risks related to these use cases. Such risks are often related to technological or regulatory uncertainty and should be proactively mitigated.

To offer insights on why banks should familiarize themselves with the digital assets business, showcase which options exist for developing a digital assets offering and highlight what challenges and risks should be considered, zeb is organizing its fourth virtual zeb.Business Event together with experts from the national and international DLT and digital assets industry.
