SAN FRANCISCO and HOBOKEN, N.J., March 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Provenance Blockchain Foundation, dedicated to supporting the development of decentralized financial services applications to deliver significant business benefits for its participants, today announced Anchorage Digital Bank, the first and only federally chartered digital asset bank with billions of dollars of digital assets under custody, will serve as its custodian for institutional banking for HASH token holdings and treasuries. As a preferred partner to The Provenance Blockchain Foundation, Anchorage Digital will also offer its institutional clients ability to custody HASH tokens.
"We are excited to support the Provenance Blockchain Foundation in its mission to provide the next generation of decentralized financial applications," said Diogo Mónica, President and Co-Founder of Anchorage Digital. "Anchorage has always been committed to providing institutions with early access to interesting new digital assets, and Provenance's focus on financial services provides an innovative evolution to decentralized financial applications."
