blocknox GmbH was founded in August 2018 and is a subsidiary of Boerse Stuttgart Digital Ventures GmbH.
Within Boerse Stuttgart Group, blocknox GmbH takes care of the custody of cryptocurrencies on an escrow basis. The service was established at the end of January 2019 for users of the BISON app and extended at the end of September 2019 for users of Boerse Stuttgart Digital Exchange (BSDEX). A multilevel security concept has been developed and implemented at blocknox for the custody of cryptocurrencies.
Looking ahead, blocknox plans to offer custody services for cryptocurrencies and other digital assets also to institutional clients such as fintechs, banks and asset managers. They can use blocknox’s reliable custody as a building block for their own services around digital assets.
With regard to the legal regulation of crypto custody in Germany as of 1 January 2020, blocknox has submitted its application for the required licence to the supervisory authorities. Until the licence is granted, blocknox already has the provisional status of a regulated financial services provider.
Managing Directors at blocknox GmbH are Dr. Ulli Spankowski and Dr. Oliver Vins.
