Blockchain Launches Institutional Product, Blockchain Principal Strategies

Today, we’re excited to announce the debut of our comprehensive institutional platform known as Blockchain Principal Strategies (BPS). BPS provides institutions, family offices, and individual investors unparalleled and tailored access to markets, research, and services on the most trusted digital asset platform worldwide.

With the launch of BPS, we’ll harness our unmatched track record in securing, managing, and evaluating digital assets to offer investors an opportunity to gain exposure to the growing digital asset ecosystem.

“We are thrilled to debut Blockchain Principal Strategies, an institutional grade platform customized for institutions, family offices, and individual investors,” said Peter Smith, CEO and Co-Founder of Blockchain. “BPS provides clients the opportunity to invest in digital assets with the same peace of mind and security that has become synonymous with the Blockchain name.”

Through BPS, investors have access to an over-the-counter (OTC) trading desk which offers a white-glove trading service led by a world-class team hailing from Cooley, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and UBS. The OTC desk also operates as a best-in-class matchmaker and direct counterparty to clients, executing trades and managing associated risk. Our long standing position in the market and technical expertise allows for trading across major currencies and digital asset pairs, powered by a sophisticated smart Order Management System (OMS) that combines liquidity from across the market to ensure best execution.

In addition to trading, BPS provides clients a customized portfolio view, as well as exclusive insights into market fundamentals, risk metrics, and access to a research team that includes the leading cryptocurrency economist, Garrick Hileman. Clients will be able to explore a variety of managed investment offerings including the opportunity to make direct equity investments into promising companies in the larger digital asset ecosystem, as well as gain access to early stage token offerings - all sourced and vetted through Blockchain’s global network.

“I joined Blockchain to help modernize the financial system, and launching BPS is the first step in our longer term strategy to execute on that vision,” said Breanne Madigan, Head of Institutional Sales and Strategy. “In addition to the BPS platform itself, we will also offer educational and networking opportunities with hopes of creating a broader, well-informed community around digital currencies moving forward.”

Blockchain Principal Strategies can now be accessed at bps.blockchain.com and we’ll be rolling out additional institutional products throughout the summer.
