We believe this will help Pure Digital accelerate their development. That Currenex will provide the technology platform is also important. Currenex is a company and an infrastructure that most of the leading banks in the world already are familiar with and trust. This could further speed up the process of attracting other Tier 1 banks” says Torbjørn Bull Jenssen CEO of Arcane and continues; “Institutional trading is the final frontier for the institutional adoption of cryptocurrencies and Arcane is excited to be a part of that with Pure Digital.

Pure Digital has purposefully built an ecosystem on next generation components throughout the full trade cycle with many important developments to come.”
