Share

RIDDLE&CODE FinTech Solutions, an innovative European company that empowers financial institutions to handle all aspects of digital asset management, announced today that LiteBit, the leading Dutch cryptocurrency exchange, has chosen its Token Management Platform (TMP) to scale infrastructure, respond to regulatory requirements and provide advanced capabilities to its growing customer base.

Over the last few years, the European Union has significantly tightened its regulations on crypto service providers, including the recently updated 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive (AMLD5). The newly implemented AMLD5 guidelines oblige service providers such as crypto exchanges and custodians to adhere to the same regulatory provisions as traditional financial institutions.

“The Dutch implementation of the regulations currently goes beyond EU guidelines and calls for extensive identification of customers and monitoring of transactions as well as extensive reporting and audit capabilities,” said Berit Fuss, Director of FinTech Solutions at RIDDLE&CODE. “These requirements have turned out to be quite burdensome and have forced several crypto-related businesses to close or leave the Netherlands.”

“Crypto exchanges across the industry are prioritising compliance with regulatory obligations. LiteBit is no exception,” said Arthur Van Lier, LiteBit’s COO. “The partnership with RIDDLE&CODE and the use of the cutting-edge TMP enables us to be compliant with both current and future regulations. But regulatory frameworks aren’t the only ones evolving,” he added. “At the moment, Decentralised Finance (DeFi) is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the crypto industry. However, due to the complexity of the applications and the efforts required to support several token protocols, many market players struggle to innovate and accommodate the integration of DeFi capabilities. With the TMP, we can benefit from these new business models and scale our operational capabilities.”

The TMP provides the Dutch exchange with a robust and transparent foundation for:

  • Responding to the most pressing demands in an ever-changing regulatory environment, including AML/CFT requirements, customer due diligence, Know-Your-Customer (KYC) procedures and more.
  • Scaling its operations by creating unlimited segregated accounts for its customers and automating certain processes to reduce the burden on the operational teams.
  • Being flexible enough to offer DeFi services such as staking or voting on popular networks like Polkadot and Ethereum.

The Token Management Platform is the next generation of RIDDLE&CODE’s institutional-grade digital asset management solution. The cloud-based platform manages all aspects of key generation, custody, AML, regulatory compliance and token management. Accepted by the Swiss financial market authorities, the TMP is fully auditable and compliant with financial regulations, allowing clients to fulfill all transparency requirements in line with financial regulations and internal compliance policies.

“We are thrilled to work with LiteBit, our first crypto exchange customer,” said Alexander Koppel, CEO of RIDDLE&CODE. “This strategic partnership allows us to enter the Dutch market and help LiteBit in its journey to full regulatory compliance and expansion across Europe.”

ESI Group Launches a “No Meeting Day” to Protect Its Employees Work-life Balance and Restore the Importance of Taking Time10.5.2021 18:00:00 CEST | Press release

ESI Group (Paris:ESI): An unbalanced equation A year ago, in the wake of COVID-19, companies began adapting to ensure the continuity of their activities during lockdown. With people bound to their homes, the opportunity to create social connections, in a professional or personal context, has strongly been affected. Indeed, as a major component of the life of many citizens, offices and workplaces are and remain a main outlet for socialization. In order to counterbalance this change, companies have utilized tools, like digital meetings, to continue connecting employees to maintain team spirit and a sense of belonging. Companies became one of the last remaining social links things when everything else was put on hold. As a result, teams’ agendas have filled up; meetings now punctuate the day, causing stress, taking away the time needed to perform various tasks and reducing focus time, pushing the workday into the evening or even the weekend.
