Crypto Custody Firm Leaves Singapore’s Regulatory Sandbox With License, ISO Rating

·1 min read

Propine, a Singapore-based digital asset custody provider, announced Monday it has been awarded a capital markets services license from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

  • The news comes as Propine graduates from the MAS FinTech Regulatory Sandbox, which allows financial institutions to experiment with new financial products under the close eye of the central bank.

  • The company was admitted to the sandbox to provide digital asset custody services in November 2019.

  • The firm also exits the sandbox with what it claims is the first ISO 27001 certification for a crypto custody provider.

  • The ISO 27001 certification is an international standard providing a framework for preserving the confidentiality and integrity of vital data.

  • “Compliant infrastructure is a bedrock on which the foundations of the security token ecosystem are created,” said Propine CEO Tuhina Singh, in reference to MAS’ regulatory framework for digital assets.

  • As well as custody, Propine offers digital asset servicing, trade settlement facilitation and investor reporting with a focus on institutional clients.
