Getting a Distributed Ledger Technology license includes a broad procedure to make and evidence compliance with the nine standards set by the GFSC. These standards are intended to guarantee that regulated business meet and keep up these high standards, which includes corporate governance, risk management, security, customer care, and crime prevention.
Moreover, furnishing collateralized borrowing and lending permits Lendingblock to backup hedging, short term trading, and working capital needs. This symbolizes traditional money related markets, which the organization means to reexamine with a superior model to support the digital asset lending industry.
CEO of Lendingblock, Steve Swain, said –
Over the past 18 months, Lendingblock has set out on a journey to reinvent the traditional capital markets securities lending model by building something better that meets client needs through the digital asset lending market. We always put the needs of its institutional client’s front and center, so it was important for us to take the proactive step in becoming a regulated entity.

Furthermore, Lendingblock stated that it is working with other worldwide regulators to make sure its platform is adaptable and gets the essential regulatory endorsements in the areas where it operates. By getting the regulatory approval from the GFSC, Lendingblock might work with few other regulators comprehensively to make sure that exchange meets its goal to work on a licensed basis for all domains it operates.
