Frankfurt am Main, 12 January 2023 – tokentus investment AG (“tokentus”, ISIN: DE000A3CN9R8; WKN: A3CN9R; symbol: 14D), headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, acquires EUR 50,000 worth of PolySign shares (www.polysign.io), headquartered in Oakland, California (USA). PolySign states it is an established operator of a secure and scalable infrastructure for financial institutions and institutional investors, helping them to leverage their digital assets across the value chain. Other investors in PolySign include Soros Fund Management, Blockchain.com, GSR, and Brevan Howard Asset Management.

PolySign’s core products include a digital asset custody solution through its subsidiary Standard Custody & Trust Company, a New York-regulated custodian. PolySign has also been active in the fund administration business since acquiring MG Stover, a full-service fund administration company founded by accountants and fund operators, in the spring of 2022. Its ABC Network subsidiary also operates a vendor-owned blockchain solution for digital identity and signatures. In the first quarter of 2023, PolySign’s portfolio is further expected to be expanded by Polynet, a settlement and clearing solution designed to provide instant and automated settlement for a range of assets. From tokentus’ perspective, current market developments and increasing governance and compliance monitoring by institutional investors are driving demand for high-quality, regulated institutional custodians across the spectrum of digital assets.

PolySign currently has approximately 60 employees and is led by a team around CEO Jack McDonald. The PolySign team consists of industry experts, including former Ripple employees, and hence has many years of experience in building and scaling technology companies.

“In our opinion, PolySign is excellently positioned and a pioneer in its field. With this strategic investment, we can specifically strengthen our portfolio alongside Qredo, BCB and Ownera with another innovative institutional infrastructure solution and diversify our overall portfolio,” said Oliver Michel, CEO of tokentus investment AG. “From our point of view, the demand for secure and regulated custody of digital assets is growing enormously, and this is exactly where we are expanding our commitment,” adds Benedikt Schulz, Investment Manager at tokentus.
