The crypto-asset industry might have been struggling during the past year, however, global banking institution HSBC (NYSE: HSBC) is looking to enhance its expertise in the area, advertising for senior digital assets and tokenization professionals.
The new roles, both at HSBC‘s Global Private Banking and Wealth (GPBW) business and both based in the United Kingdom, are now being advertised via the banking institution’s official website.
The global product manager for digital assets will be tasked with the seamless running of all activities through the creation, optimization and support of governance and policy-related issues.
As noted in the post:
“Because digital assets is a new topic and strategic & risk appetite considerations are evolving quickly, the product manager for digital assets will be required to build strategic frameworks and policies to help drive complex business, project and governance decisions.”
As mentioned in the posting, the product director, tokenization will be primarily focused on asset tokenization use -cases, and required “to make complex business and project decisions, that contribute to a high value, strategic initiative”.
Applications for these new roles are expected to close on February 13, 2023.
Despite losing trillions of dollars in market cap during an extremely challenging 2022, the digital asset market is expected to grow steadily in the coming year. While many companies like Coinbase, Kraken, and Luno have announced massive layoffs, the blockchain and crypto sector has made substantial progress over the years. The successful Ethereum Merge, which involved a transition from the energy-intensive proof-of-work consensus algorithm to the proof-of-stake consensus mechanism, is considered one of the most defining moment in the ecosystem in the past year.
It’s now also expected the regulators and individual consumers and businesses will be a lot more critical of new projects and bold claims from so-called crypto entrepreneurs. With the expected increase in due diligence and regulatory scrutiny, it’s quite likely that the nascent crypto sector will grow in a more sustainable manner in the coming years.
