  • HONG KONG : Maltese-based Blockchain Advisory (BCA) has announced a strategic alliance and collaboration with Blockpass IDN. The collaboration will focus on the creation of a reg-tech focussed compliant ecosystem within blockchain, and bring together two established businesses already at the forefront of legal compliance.

    BCA is a fast growing team of regulatory and technology specialists that introduced blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies to Malta back in 2013, and are assisting numerous blockchain-based and cryptocurrency-related projects such as token generation events, crypto funds, and cryptocurrency exchanges in becoming leaders of the upcoming shift in global technology, as well as providing advice and feedback to the regulatory authorities regarding the implementation and execution of the DLT Regulatory Framework.

    Blockpass is digital identity application and service that brings control back to the user. Blockpass provides a streamlined and cost-effective user onboarding process for regulated industries and any kind of online service. From the Blockpass application, users can create, store, and manage, data-secure digital identity that can be used for an entire ecosystem of services or token purchases.

    CEO of BCA, Jonathan Galea: “Customer due diligence procedures and general AML processes have become more important than ever in the novel industry of blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies. The strategic partnership with Blockpass gives our clients access to and the cutting-edge technology provided by Blockpass coupled with peace of mind regarding security and compliance with the latest regulatory requirements.”

    CEO of Blockpass, Adam Vaziri said: “What’s definitely evident is that regulatory bodies are interested in blockchain based DApps and businesses, and that’s what make this strategic alliance with BCA so powerful. By combining our solution with their expertise, we are creating a think tank that will make a compliant reg-tech ecosystem accessible to all players within the space.”
