Komainu Adds Gate.io to Collateral Management Offering

New Digital Asset Exchange to Join Komainu Connect

ST HELIER, JERSEY, October 17, 2023 Komainu, a regulated digital asset custody service provider built by institutions for institutions today announced that Gate.io, a leading digital asset exchange serving millions of users, became the latest exchange to join its collateral management platform Komainu Connect.

Launched in April, Komainu Connect reduces client counterparty risk by removing the need to store collateral with trading counterparties, and offering the ability to keep assets in safe custody instead. Once the partnership kicks off, Gate.io’s institutional clients can soon have custody of their digital assets with Komainu, while trade on Gate.io without the need to transfer their assets, ensuring a more secure and independent investment experience.

Darren Jordan, Head of Sales at Komainu, said: “We are delighted to add another leading exchange to our growing collateral management ecosystem. With the addition of Gate.io and a healthy pipeline of participants, we will continue to provide a vibrant and evolving offering for our clients.”

Dr. Lin Han, Founder and CEO of Gate.io, said: “Gate.io prioritizes safety and security for our clients. One of the solutions we offer is enabling our clients to better safeguard their assets. We have been committed to promoting our clients' confidence by leading the industry in publishing 100% audited Proof-of-Reserve reports and making our on-chain wallet holdings available for public viewing. We share the same goal with Komainu.”
