Alessio Quaglini, Hex Trust

In Asia, the ongoing legitimization of crypto and tokenization goes hand in hand with regulation, bringing crypto closer to TradFi norms. But custody, the safekeeping of assets with a service level on top, is still unregulated.

Custody is even more critical in crypto than in TradFi, argues Alessio Quaglini, founder of Hex Trust, a third-party custodian of digital assets. He explains how custody differs in the two worlds, lingering questions about regulation, and the impact this year from the launch of spot Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs.

Alessio also tells DigFin‘s Jame DiBiasio about how he’s growing the Hex Trust business, DeFi, asset management, and other initiatives.
