Bankex Strikes a Deal with an Institutional Investor: How Bankex Got Here from Its Startup Beginnings


This is a submitted sponsored story. CCN urges readers to conduct their own research with due diligence into the company, product or service mentioned in the content below.

BANKEX’s recent registration in Malta has paved the path to the first sale of BANKEX tokens to a leading institutional investor on the financial assets market. The tokens that are now in the possession of this financial powerhouse are time-locked and will be used within the framework of the BANKEX STO. As proven by this deal, BANKEX is now opening a new exciting chapter in its development, one defined by cooperation with big enterprises. With this success, BANKEX is now focusing on its main infrastructure services and tech: BANKEX Custody Service, BANKEX Token Exchange, Ethereum Plasma Prime, and an STO framework. Since BANKEX’s founding as a startup in 2015, it has formed a final award-winning team, established strategic partnerships, and has had its token listed on important exchanges. But it is worthwhile to look back to see just how the company transitioned from startup to major player and the tech that powered it all.

Fintech company BANKEX was founded in 2015, when it provided Know Your Customer (KYC) services to banks, developed chatbots, researched markets, and participated in and won hackathons. Then, in 2017, the company began to focus on developing the Proof-of-Asset Protocol to unify Banking-as-a-Service product modules and blockchain technology.

To make this new unification a reality, BANKEX initiated a token sale. This was ranked among the most anticipated and successful sales of 2017 according to an independent ranking from Entrepreneur media. Shortly thereafter, in February 2017, BANKEX signed a partnership with Microsoft to develop blockchain technology.

Now after this period of successful development, the BANKEX team is formed, the services are tested, and the burn rate is limited to operating expenses – salaries and office rent, specifically. With the flagship office in New York, business development office in Singapore, strategic partnership offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo, engineering teams in Moscow and Saint Petersburg, BANKEX now has a solid team dedicated to pushing boundaries and perfecting its infrastructure services and tech. Here’s where BANKEX has focused.

BANKEX Custody Service

One of these services, BANKEX Custody Service, is the first crypto depository that has no minimum deposit limit and offers complete protection from the three main threats to safe cryptocurrency storage – key loss, physical damage, and online attackers. BANKEX Custody Service is catered to holders of tentpole cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin. It will soon accept ERC-20 utility tokens along with security tokens.

BANKEX Custody is a bank-like depository, offering a possibility for accounts to be restored.

BKX is not a dividend-bearing token. Instead, BANKEX offers a model wherein possession of its tokens gives users perpetual free access to its services. This is a lot like a subscription to web services, except that payment is only made once, instead of on a regular basis. This is a technically complex model, and the aforementioned Custody Service is where BANKEX is starting the model’s implementation. Service users owning tokens reduces the amount of tokens in circulation, and thus results in a profit for token-holders.

BANKEX implements all this convenience while still providing unparalleled security. The Custody database cannot be accessed or read by a human – everything is encrypted and handled within a machine environment. The server is removed from human interference and only BANKEX’s automated modules can access it. In addition, in Custody, to hack a wallet, one needs to hack a whole series of nested keys kept in a Hardware Security Module (HSM) within the Amazon cloud.

BANKEX Token Exchange

The next important development is this new BANKEX trading platform. It will become the key element within the framework of the BANKEX Security Token Offering (STO) and support trades within the secondary market.

This new platform enables not only the trade of BTC and ETH basic pairs, but also the trade of complex security tokens connected to real-world assets. BANKEX Token Exchange will serve as a second market for security tokens and will support tZero tokens, ST-20 tokens, and ERC-888 security tokens from BANKEX that incorporate KYC verification methods. The trading platform stores assets in BANKEX Custody Service. Keeping assets in the cold storage of Custody Service will ensure that assets won’t be stolen and will help prevent any business difficulties that could arise from insecure storage.

These tokens that will be supported by the new exchange will only be available to people who have gone through and been approved by KYC and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) procedures.

BANKEX Digital Deal

BANKEX Digital Deal is the next product that will transform traditional businesses into digital ones. It is clear that businesses that disregard the importance of digitization will perish. BANKEX can help keep business competitive with its Digital Deal, which will prepare a business for tokenization, taking the documents and records establishing the basis of business and digitizing them so the business can move forward into the digital world.

Digital Deal for Enterprise is a traceability solution within the BANKEX Supply Chain framework established on the public Ethereum blockchain. Privacy is ensured by BANKEX’s Supply Chain Wallet, which empowers the connection of private keys to employees’ roles in the Supply Chain system as well as access to common functions of their smartphones, such as taking photos or providing locations.

BANKEX Security Token Frameworks

These previously mentioned services complement the next BANKEX development: the BANKEX Security Token Framework. BANKEX is the first company that offers a complete STO framework throughout a security token’s full life cycle – including the digitization, issuance that meets both KYC and AML requirements, secondary market trading, and burning. In order to ensure a token’s liquidity and mitigate risk, BANKEX offers the opportunity to securitize tokens by combining them. This functions in the same way that Brent Crude Oil Futures work.

These BANKEX products and services, including products and services not listed here, are also used to interact with BANKEX digital assets such as MediaToken, Franchise Token, and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs).

BANKEX security tokens are the result of other enterprises integrating BANKEX technology to migrate their business to the blockchain. MovieCoin, for example, is developing a blockchain-based platform that incorporates the BANKEX Proof-of-Asset Protocol as well as smart contracts to transform the financing of major motion pictures, television, and other entertainment media.

In addition, BANKEX has also entered into partnership with Codex Protocol, a decentralized registry for unique assets, to establish an end-to-end solution for the securitization of valuable collectibles. The partnership is an exciting opportunity to provide more liquidity to collectors and more investment opportunities for capital-providers while preserving the privacy of both.


BANKEX is a global top-20 fintech company developing the Proof-of-Asset Protocol to bring Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) product modules and blockchain together to enable digitization, tokenization, and exchange of assets for the full development of a tokenized global ecosystem. BANKEX infrastructure services and technologies include STO Framework, Custody Service, BANKEX Token Exchange, Ethereum Plasma Prime, Supply Chain, and Digital Deal on the Ethereum blockchain.

Bitcoin Cash Price Gets Skewed due to Exchange Trickery

A lot of confusing action is taking place where the Bitcoin Cash price is concerned. Although its actual decline in value is quite obvious for everyone to see, the real price of BCH is not necessarily what people can see on Coinmarketcap. This is primarily because numerous exchanges treat BCHABC as Bitcoin Cash already despite nothing being decided in terms of which chain will be the longest. Bitcoin Cash Value Fluctuates Heavily Depending on where traders look at, the price of Bitcoin Cash will be either close to the $400 level or down to $250-ish. That is quite a large gap between prices, yet one that is also very easy to explain. Bitcoin Cash, as people knew it before the fork, no longer exists. Most professional exchanges have also retired this price ticker, for the time being. As the hash war rages on, there are still a lot of unknown factors waiting to be addressed. Despite this ongoing kerfuffle, there is a net 5.76% decrease in the Bitcoin Cash price, and a 5.4% decline over Bitcoin. More specifically, that is what CoinMarketCap reports at this time, although this is not necessarily the case whatsoever. In fact, some exchanges are clearly jumping the gun by labeling BCHABC as BCH and thus dragging the Bitcoin Cash price down a bit more. Exchanges currently engaging in this activity include Bittrex and Coinex, neither of which plays a big role of importance when it comes to trading. However, based on the current value of BCH on Bitfinex and Gate.io, it seems a similar incident is taking place. One also has to keep in mind Bitcoin Cash was getting battered ahead of the network split as well. Most exchanges have halted trading of BCH indefinitely, primarily because the currency no longer exists. It is evident either BCHABC or BCHSV will take over that name in the future, but nothing has been decided at this point. As such, any trading referring to just “Bitcoin Cash” or “BCH” should be avoided, as most users can never be sure which currency is effectively being traded under this name. All of this skews the picture pertaining to Bitcoin Cash altogether. Coinmarketcap reports there is still $392m in trading volume for BCH, even though that is virtually impossible right now. With so many exchanges freezing deposits and withdrawals, it is evident actual BCH trading is no longer possible whatsoever. Virtually all platforms have deposits of BCHSV and BCHABC frozen as well, which only makes this market trend more confusing. It is safe to say the entire network split has been a bit of a mess first and foremost. In the case of Bitcoin Cash itself, that name will – under the current circumstances- not be used across exchanges for much longer. Instead, the two separate camps need to be treated as such first and foremost. Until things settle down – with might not necessarily happen anytime soon – the Bitcoin Cash price itself is pretty much irrelevant for most traders and speculators.
