According to the press release published on February 27, Goldmoney, the world’s largest network providing storage and transportation of gold added two more main cryptocurrencies to the service of cold storage.
The company which already provides service of cold storage for Bitcoin (BTC) declared what creates the storage meeting standards and the requirements of the fight against money laundering (Anti-Money Laundering, AML) for Ethereum (ETH). Soon after that, the Bitcoin Cash storage (BCH) will be launched. As appears from the press release, Goldmoney Inc. stores about $2 billion assets of clients from more than 150 countries of the world.
“Clients of Goldmoney will be able to buy directly Ethereum now, without violating requirements of AML (fight against money laundering) and to sell the coins on the Goldmoney network in the same way as for buy or sell Bitcoin and precious metals” — Goldmoney reports.
The company assures that cryptocurrency savings of clients are safely protected and are stored in the independent cold storage, “with the personal keys which are in the hardware purse password-protected”.
In process of growth of interest of general public, the cryptocurrency draws more attention of traditional, conservative investors. For this reason, the service of cold storage is also provided now by the Liechtenstein bank Frick providing storage of five main cryptocurrencies.
Last month the Regal RA DMCC company from Dubai trading in gold obtained the license for trade in cryptocurrency. This license allowed the company to open the first-ever underground cold storage for cryptocurrencies.
