LATTICE80 said it will partner with licensed platforms to offer services ranging from a licensed cryptocurrency exchange to e-payments, and a full digital bank. In addition to supporting open source projects and research, it will also build a licensed platform for APIs into which Fintech startups can plug-and-play their services.
LATTICE80 is owned and operated by Marvelstone Group, a private investment firm based in Singapore. Joe Seunghyun Cho, founding CEO of LATTICE80 and Chairman of Marvelstone Group, commented on the anncouncement;
“We are seeing huge demand and opportunities in ICOs globally. It is changing the demographics of the whole finance industry. We are seeing a clear need to offer a proper infrastructure to support a this new field of cryptoeconomics. We would like to build a system where HNWIs and institutions can participate under properly regulated systems and compliance mechanisms. We want to institutionalise this emerging asset class to offer a new alpha opportunity, with lower co-relation to existing assets in alternative asset portfolios, for institutional investors.”
LATTICE80 has been aggressively expanding its footprint around the world. While Singapore may be home base, Fintech is a global phenomenon. LATTICE80 will be opening more branches and partnerships along with established locations. LATTICE80 has, or will have, a presence in Japan, London, New York, MENA and elsewhere in Asia and the EU.
